The kids were on Spring Break last week and out of all the options that were presented to them (only places in Texas), they decided on Dinosaur Valley State Park. It's a good 4.5 hour drive nonstop which meant it was time for a road trip! There was no way we're driving there and back so we spent a couple nights in the closest city, Dallas. And the kids got to experience what it's like to go on trips with us... eat like crazy.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.

For almost the entire month of February, there has been at least one person sick in the family. First it was Jacob with pneumonia that lasted forever. Then baby Elliot with her fever, runny nose and snot eating. Then Lynn with her cough and raspy voice (which I'm actually diggin'). Now Tyson has a crazy high fever that's lasting for days (like Jacob) but add in barf. Lots of it. Barf on carpet is the worst.  He too got an X-ray to see if it's pneumonia (results pending).

Last weekend we celebrated Venus' 40th birthday. The big four-oh. When I hear 40, I immediately think that's old. Then I quickly realize that I'm not too far behind. In fact, I still don't feel like an "adult". That title belongs to my parents, aunts and uncles. I will forever be a "kid" although my body is telling me otherwise.

One week before Jacob's birthday, he got sick. He was tired with a fever and no other symptoms. No big deal, or so we thought. Then comes his birthday is he's still running a fever with a nasty cough. So we finally take him in to see the doctor, who wanted an X-ray, which then confirmed that he had pneumonia. Yikes. He was out of school for an entire week. Classmates made him birthday/get well cards, which was really thoughtful. He finally semi-recovered by Sunday and I took him, his brothers and cousins to Monster Jam for his birthday. What a week.

Another weekend, another wedding. Who gets married during Super Bowl weekend? My friend Johnny, that's who. I've known him since we began pharmacy school together... nearly 17 years ago! And I had the honor of being one of his groomsmen. The wedding festivities were all in Galveston, St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica (ceremony) and Hotel Galvez (reception), which was a good thing considering Houston was crazy congested with the Super Bowl in town.

Last weekend we headed to Austin for Mel and Dan's wedding. It was like a mini family reunion. Relatives who I only get to see maybe once every few years were there. They came from far and wide for this one night. It was an awesome ceremony. And any reason to go to Austin is awesome.
