Swim team

Barrett just wrapped up his first season of swim team. He had a fun time and improved so much.  He is a much stronger swimmer. He just loves swimming laps and practicing. It was fun to watch him swim and we enjoyed getting to know more people in our neighborhood.  Saturday was our last meet and Barrett got to swim at UT. It was very cool and a fun experience for Barrett. We wrapped up the season with a pool party in the neighborhood last night!  What a great first year of swim team its been!!

Beach Bums!

We've just returned from several days at the beach.  Growing up, we went to the beach every summer with my cousins. I have great memories of that! And, I love that my kids can hang out and have fun with their cousins at the beach. Its fun for all of us adults to get together too.  Thanks mom and Dad for getting a house on the beach where we could all come and hang out and relax. We are all hoping it will become a yearly tradition.
Thanks Mom and dad
We celebrated my grandfather's 85th birthday while at the beach.  It was fun to see Pops and Dorrie.  We each came up with memories of Pops and put them in a jar.  We had 85 in all.  He is such a great man and we are lucky he is our Pops!

Hong Kong

After we left Malaysia, we headed to Hong Kong for a few days.  Derek has been here many times and was really excited for me to go with him.  He loves this city and I can see why. We packed in alot of things while we were there and enjoyed exploring this city together.
We arrived in HK, got settled in our hotel, wandered around a bit and then went to have dinner at Aqua.  This place had amazing views over looking the harbor. Sadly,my iphone didn't get any good pics of the view. After dinner, we went to a night market to browse around and walked along the harbor.

I had a great time hanging with my guy, learning about Hong Kong and experiencing the culture of another place. It was so much fun and I loved the city.  Can't wait for our next trip together.
