South Padre

The kids, my mom and I headed to South Padre a couple of weeks ago. Daniel flew down and drove back with us. While we were there, Daniel's sister and her family came down. These are all her pictures.... I didn't take my camera with me.... so, thanks for sharing Neesey! The kids had so much fun! We couldn't keep Cal away from the water and Patti was so happy collecting sea shells with her cousins. Sorry, David didn't get to join in the beach fun (he stayed upstairs with Grams)... so, I promise I'll post pictures of him soon!

Cal and Baby Jesus

I just had a good laugh... I have to document it or else I'll forget.

Daniel was telling Patti that he loved her and asked her if she wanted to marry him (kidding around of course... that's just gross if you think he was serious). I asked Cal who he was going to marry (I've already married him off to a best friend's daughter... just wanted to know if he remembered :) He looked at me puzzled (we really don't talk a lot about being married... it just doesn't come up in conversations with the kids.... so, my kids are unfamiliar with the word/concept). I asked him again, "who are you going to marry?" He sweetly and confusingly (I may have just made up that word).... answered "Baby Jesus??" Get it? "Mary"... and Baby Jesus. He does listen in Bible Class.

I put David down in his bassinet in my room.... with Cal and Patti laying on my bed watching Dora and eating marshmallows. I was just a few feet away in the bathroom trying to do something with this mop on my head (aka hair). Here's how the conversation went....

Cal: Yes, he likes marshmallows...

Patti: No Cal!!

Me: (whipping around the corner) Cal! Do NOT ever put anything in David's mouth!!

Patti: Yeah... only milk!

Me: Right Patti... but, only mommy does that right?

Patti: Right. And, when I'm bigger I will give him my milk.

Cal: Yeah... and when I'M bigger, I will give him my milk too.

(I'll leave that one for Daniel to explain)
