Happy Birthday Jeff!

While we were in San Antonio it was Jeff's birthday. We went to eat down on the riverwalk at The County Line. It was really good and the giant double chocolate fudge cake with ice cream to top it off was the best!
Dylan was so excited for dessert. So was Jeff, he just wasn't hopping up and down in his chair like Dylan was. We all really enjoyed the cake.
Jeff took these pictures and said I had to blog them which I am only doing because it was his birthday. Happy Birthday Jeffrey, I love you so much and am thankful for all you do for our family.

Sea World with Grandma

We left on Friday right after school to meet up with Grandma in San Antonio. Saturday morning we headed to Sea World. Tyler and Dylan have been soooo excited and counting down the days to go. We did all of our favorite things like seeing Shamu, feeding the sea lions, seeing the crocodiles, playing in the sprinkler park, and trying to touch the dolphins.
This was the first time Tyler and Dylan actually touched the dolphins, it was very exciting.


Tyler started Kindergarten last Tuesday! I can't believe what a big kid he is. He met his teacher the week before and we have been talking about it forever to get him ready. He hasn't been the most excited kid about it, but so far everyday when I ask if he likes it and wants to go back he says he does. He is already starting in on the "I don't remember", or "same thing as yesterday Mom" answers when I ask him how school was. He is not much for details so I figure if he is not crying to never go back everything must be okay. So far the hardest thing is getting us out of bed and out the door to get him to school by 7:35. Yes that is what time Elementary school starts. CRAZY!!!! And it is full day kindergarten, I don't pick him up till 2:45. Lets just say that by 7 we are reading books and ready for bed. I can't believe we have a Kindergartner!

Grandma Visiting

We love when Grandma Megerle comes to visit. She reads us lots of books and likes to sit outside and watch us play. While she was here lots of stuff happened. Tyler started Kindergarten, we went to Sea World, Jeff had his birthday, and we had tons of fun. Thanks for coming to see us Grandma!

Thursday, August 20, 2009


So we have had a busy August with family visiting us here in Central Texas. My mom and dad came down from Seattle, my grandparents came over from Nashville, and my Aunt Kelly and Uncle Martin made us there turn around point on their great American road trip (check out the Krenn blog link on the side to see their adventures). This is how they arrived and left.
We kind of did the whirl wind tour of Austin and San Antonio. Eating as much as we could along the way of course. BBQ, Tex-Mex, and our very own smoked ribs and chicken.
Hula Hut
Smoked ribs and chicken in the back yard.
We went to the Texas State History Museum
The Texas State Capital
We climbed the stairs up Mount Bonnell to see the great view of Lake Austin and the Hill Country.
We went and saw the bats even though it was a bit of a let down. Our timing was a little off. (Still so sorry about that Kelly and Martin.)
We went to the Temple in San Antonio and tried to stay in the shade.
And of course we went to the Alamo and the Riverwalk were we did the boat tour.
Thanks Kelly and Martin and G & G for coming and visiting us! After they left my mom and dad stayed for a few more days. Grandpa took the boys swimming everyday twice a day and they loved it. Thanks Grandpa! We have had a few days to recoup and start getting ready for Kindergarten next week and Grandma Megerle getting here this afternoon. We love having so much family coming to see us. When is it your turn?
