Nate, Telisha, and company :)

For Labor Day weekend Sean and I took a trip to Columbus, Ohio to see Sean's brother Nate, his wife Telisha, and their adorable kids.  The drive up there wasn't as bad as I was expecting and seeing them was  definitely worth the 15 hours in the car.  We had SOOO much fun!  I'm really glad we decided to go up and visit them.  We haven't seen them since last summer, I can't believe it's been over a year!  Sidney, Owen, and Tanner were so big!

I couldn't believe how big Tanner has gotten.  The last time we saw him he was still a newborn!

While we were there we went to the zoo.  The kids loved looking at the "fishies".

Owen would freak out every time a shark would come by the window, so cute.
I love Owen!

We got the kids a few little gifts.  It was hilarious watching them open up the presents (video to come later).
This is probably the best picture of the whole trip.  Sean and I weren't really expecting much of a reaction from Tanner because he's so little, but he had the best reaction of them all!  This picture doesn't even do it justice, he started trembling and screaming with excitement.  Awesome.
Owen kept screaming, "open it Dad, open it!!"
"Bubbles!"  "Princess stuff!"
Sidney with her purple princess shirt (purple is her favorite color, that was pure luck!)
Owen couldn't say 'cars' so he kept screaming "TARS!" him :)

Seriously?  Are these not the cutest kids that you've ever seen? 
 So we got the boys some bubbles with their cars, and basically I saw this going a lot differently in my head.  Haha, they were doing anything but running and making bubbles.  Mostly they were crying/screaming, pouring them out, chasing each other around the yard with them, hitting the ball with the bubble stick, etc.  Well, I tried. 
"T-ball" with the bubble stick 
This picture pretty much sums up how the bubbles went.

Girls Weekend!

Sean and I have been married a little over two years.  I've never been on a trip with out him, but a few weeks ago I had a short girls weekend with Chelse and Rachel, two of my best friends from college.  We went to San Francisco, and it was so much fun!  I haven't been there in a long time, so it was fun to see the city as an adult.  It's a really neat city, a lot different from Texas!  It was really good to see both of them again, it makes me sad that none of us live by each other...sigh, maybe one day :)  I love being married, but it's always nice to get a little girl time in (love you Sean).
As you can see from this picture and the first one, we went to Lombard Street.  It's supposed to be the most crooked street, it was pretty cool. 
These houses were on Lombard street too, I just thought they looked neat. 
We went to Ghiradelli Square, and got a lot of free samples..totally worth it! 
We went to a few different piers, including Pier 39 and saw Alcatraz Island. 
Love them. 
We had some amazing meals, including this breakfast.
We waited for some buses that never came.. 
We went to the Golden Gate Park, so pretty. 
Our rainbows :)

took a bunch of pictures.. 
I miss them already!
