The Kind Of Week You never Want to End

My darling family came to Houston for a week!
Baby was so spoiled!
He was center of attention 24/7 just the way he likes it.

We are really lucky because my in-laws and parents are like best friends so we are all like family.
My siblings stayed at my in-laws and my mother-in-law just spoiled them like no other.

My parents were in heaven with the babes and 
Ryan has the cutest Grandmas in the world!
My two favorite ladies on earth right here.
Good thing we live by the one on the left because when we moved to Texas I didn't know how I was going to survive without the one on the right.

We did a lot of what we do best: SHOPPING. And my sister and I thought it was cool to try on all the same outfits.
We fell in love with that swimsuit and convinced our mom that we both needed the same one.
I'm the worst bowler on the planet but in this picture I look like I know what I'm doing.:)

We headed to San Antonio for the weekend, my family had never been.
We stayed at the most beautiful resort and hit up all the main attractions.

The gorgeous River Walk.
The boys golfed, and the girls shopped.

We took baby to meet Shamu!
Baby's first day at Sea World and he was so excited.

Sunday came and I was so sad to say goodbye!
Utah is way too far away.
It's weeks like these you wish could never end!
Miss you already!
