Deep in the heart of Texas...

Recently Jordan and I made a trek to the land of my birth. Where you say? San Antonio of course. And yes, everything IS bigger in Texas. 
Jordan had to present his project at an engineering conference and I got to tag along. As a HUGE bonus I got to meet my mother-in-laws side of the family, which turned out to be my favorite part of the trip. I felt like I had stepped right into a book as we sat sipping cold drinks on the front porch in 95 degree weather. So thank you to:
+  Aunt Nannie for letting us stay with you.
+  James, Richard, Linda, Lana, Lisa, and John for the hours of blackmail stories about Loretta (my mother-in-law). Now when she and Spike tell me not to drive too fast I just have to wink at Loretta and say "Remember Lisa's wedding?  Would that Loretta have followed the speed limit?"
+   Wes for driving so many hours to pick us up and take us back.
+  And the whole Eager family for making it a fun trip. We can't wait to come back and see you guys.
(We considered storming the Alamo, until we decided it was too hot and to get snow cones instead. Maybe next time.)
