"Vacation in Good Ole San Antonio"

Last week Nick's parents took us to San Antonio for vacation.  It was us, them and his brother and family.  We had so much fun!  It was my first time in San Antonio.  
Having a little smooch on the Riverwalk!

We took a boat tour...very lovely!

One of the days we went to Fiesta Texas.  Reese is sitting on Poppi while watching the laser show on the mountain.  She was learning all of her Texas history.

Reese took good naps in the hotel b/c she was always so worn out from the swimming pool.  Daddy wanted her to take a nap in his she did.
Hitting the pool with "Terry" the turtle.  (Nick named him)
One evening Ronnie took us to the Grey Moss Inn.  It is a steak place...very good.  I didn't eat steak though b/c I am not a steak person...or a seafood person...I ate chicken.  Thank goodness for that faithful chicken breast that is usually available no matter where you go! ha.

(Another Fiesta Texas pic...these are out of order)
Josh, Kate, Peyton and Parker on the Riverwalk 
(Another Fiesta Texas picture....I think this was Reese's favorite thing we did.)
Fun at the resort pool.  
Cousin Peyton, Reese, Cousin Parker and 2nd cousin Maci Svec
Reese and Parker were finished!  They were so tired.
We also went to SeaWorld.  I didn't have my camera that day.  We REALLY enjoyed SeaWorld!  We fed the dolphins, saw the Shamu Show and saw a dolphin/acrobatic highdiver show.  Everything was excellent, beautiful place.  
Thank you Poppi and Gigi...we had sooo much fun!

Happy 1st Birthday REESE!!! (plus lots of other pics)

I have not updated my blog in several weeks so I have much to share.....1st....
Happy 3 Year Anniversary Nicholas Grant Floyd!
I love you so much.  You are the perfect one for me.  God is good.

Secondly, Nick's brother Josh brought his family down for Reese's 1st birthday party.  Thanks Josh, Kate, Peyton and Parker.  We had so much fun with you!!!!
Reese and I just returned from Florida.  My best friend from college just got married in Orlando.  My parents watched Reese for 2 days while I did the wedding stuff.  I had a great time with my girlfriends from college. (Pictures soon to come).  Congratulations Natalie and Matt~  Then...I went to Sebring (my hometown) to spend several more days with my family before flying back to Dallas yesterday.
Granddaddy and Mimi telling Reese bye.

Aunt Abigail and Reese after our swim at the lake.  Yesterday before we flew home, we took Reese to Lake Jackson.  It is really shallow right now so it was perfect.  We had so much fun.

She was a little unsure of Ms. Hippo...but she warmed up.
Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come???

Aunt Abby with Reese out in the water.

This is part of my family with Reese after church on Sunday.  
After church we headed up to Plant City Florida to my Aunt Julie's house.  Her son, my cousin Barrett....just graduated with his masters and is headed to New York to Cornell to begin his Doctorate.  He was singing Old Mc Donald to Reese and Aubrey (my cousin's daughter).
This is my cousin Jessica.  Jessica and Mike have 9 month old triplets....Brady, Emma and Natalie.  The girls have the same top as Reese~
Mom and Dad holding all 3 triplets, Reese and Aubrey.  Too much fun!
Uncle Travis with one of the triplets. 

We were celebrating 5 things I think...Happy Birthday to my Aunt Julie, Happy Birthday to Aubrey, Good Luck to Barrett, Get Well Soon to my cousin Jordan battleing cancer..( he is doing well he said) and....
Happy Birthday to Reese!  I have a big family.  My Dad has 4 sisters and 3 of them live in FL.

Last week, Nick went to Liberty University to take a class, mom and dad came to take care of me and Reese while I had my wisdom teeth removed...everything went great.  I feel great.  Thanks Mom and Dad.

The kids after Reese's party.  So hot.
After Reese's B-day party we all took naps and headed to the pool.  This was Reese's 1st time~  

Happy 1st Birthday to Reese!!!


We had Nick's Brother in town with his family and my parents.  Nick's parents couldn't make it.  We missed having them!
