JP and I flew to Las Vegas for a few days to check on some wedding stuff. Maybe the wedding things were an excuse but we did see tour the chapel at Planet Hollywood. And we toured our reception area.  The rest of the time it was all party, all the time. And gambling of course.  We […]

Have you ever been to Puerto Rico? JP and I spent a few days in San Juan and loved it. Although we never really left the hotel we still had a blast. The last few days looked something like this. We spent a lot of time on the beach. When we weren’t on the beach […]


My sister and her family escaped the cold of the Ann Arbor-ish Michigan area to spend the week with us here in San Antonio. I love having visitors and they are no exception. I love the sound of a busy house. Over the past week we spent a lot of time in the pool, hot […]

We spent a few days in San Diego, CA for Lily’s spring break this year. It wasn’t very warm but it also wasn’t very cold. Here are some silly pictures that I took this week. We found this huge burger at Slater’s 50/50. And this snake warning sign in Point Loma at Cabrillo National Monument. […]

JP and I are both big fans of New Orleans, LA. We spent the last few days there having fun, eating good food, and meeting new people.  My friends make fun of me for this but it is always a good idea to write your hotel room number on your arm before you head out […]

This morning Lily and I slept in a little bit and then checked out of our hotel and hit the road. Our first stop was Forks, WA because Lily is a big fan of the Twilight movies. While most of the movies were not actually filmed there that is where they are said to live. […]

JP and I spent the last few days in Atlanta, GA… AKA: Hotlanta. According to Urban Dictionary: A common nickname for Atlanta popularized throughout the United States and abroad for over two decades by the marketing efforts of the Atlanta Convention Bureau and various trade and tourist organizations. The “Hot” in “Hotlanta” refers to the […]


This morning JP and I landed back in San Antonio after spending a few days in Key West, FL. This is our second time to Key West and we can say with 100% certainty that we LOVE it there. We knew it was going to be a good trip when on the way there I […]


Little Rock! Nope… I am not talking about the Reba McEntire song I am talking about the capital of Arkansas. Our plan this morning was to wake up bright and early and drive all the way back to San Antonio. But when my alarm went off at 5:00 AM I turned it off. At that […]


Lily has really long hair. I have tried to talk her into getting it cut but she refuses. Pretty much everyday I find myself combing it out for her and putting it up in some combination of rubber bands. This morning after I finished doing her hair she wanted me to do Lilly’s hair too. […]


Today Lily and I spent hours walking around the St Louis Zoo and the St Louis Science Center. Both have free admission but they have ways of making you spend money once you are inside. There is a Build-A-Bear inside the zoo that has animals exclusively sold there. Of course Lily had to get a […]

A couple of months ago when we started talking about Thanksgiving week Lily convinced us that we needed to go on a family vacation somewhere warm that week. San Antonio is usually pretty warm still in November but something crazy happened this year. Look at the temperature as we headed to the airport this morning. […]


Today is the day! Today is the day that I am getting my passport stamped for the first time.  First we flew from San Antonio to San Francisco. Then we used Travelex in San Francisco to get some foreign currency. Then we got our passports ready. And waited in line to get on this airplane. […]

Me and my love!

You probably already know that I love to travel. Love to travel! And from Sunday to Wednesday morning JP and I spent our time in New York, NY. This was my first trip to the city that never sleeps and it was everything I expected it to be. This is by far the busiest city […]

Snow in Mount San Jacinto State Park

We spent 3 nights in Palm Desert, CA with JP’s parents Bob and Marlene. This was my second time to the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area and I really like it. The weather is very similar to San Antonio but when you look out at the sky there are mountains! During our trip we did a […]

Donald Duck

I think my favorite part about Disneyland and California Adventure over the last few days has been meeting all of the characters. It is really hard to choose which one is my favorite. Click on the pictures below to make them bigger.
