This summer we were blessed to be able to go back to Texas for a three week visit with family. We spent the first half of our trip in San Antonio with Michael’s family. His brother used some vacation time to come stay for a week and his sister’s soon to be husband came down from New York to meet us. We had a great time as time in San Antonio is always relaxing…from buying a bb gun to fire in the back yard, to Costco runs, to strolls through the park and long dinners over bbq…I love hanging out with our family there! I have SO many pictures…but here are some highlights….
Oh my word. We had such a great time…these pictures don’t even show the half of it. From introducing the kids to lazer tag and blue bell bullets, a day at the zoo and visiting with old friends who have an awesome backyard, to shopping summer sales and enjoying amazing Texas food…to playing wrestling games on the xbox with uncles and getting hooked on American Ninja Warrior…to watching deer and hummingbirds from the comfort of the breakfast table, time in San Antonio is always a joy. I confess…though I am from Houston, central Texas is my absolute favorite and if God ever calls us back to Texas some day…I really hope that’s where we can land. I also confess that I’m thankful that our conviction to be in Portugal is strong because there is so much to love about our beautiful homeland, it can be tempting to want to return after a visit. I love the giant playgrounds available to kids, the friendly people and the new food-truck culture. Things like that make Texas that much more inviting. Anyway, it was a wonderful time and I’m thankful the family made so much time to be with us!
