Our Quick Trip to Houston...





There is nothing like a *little* jaunt to Houston, Tx for one night!!! Yes, we got up EARLY Sat morning and drove the 7 hours to attend Greg's cousins wedding! The drive over wasn't bad and we made really good time. The wedding started at 4pm and we were in Houston city limits by 2:15. Two problems though....we stopped to go through a drive thru and didn't realize it would take 20 MINS to get a burger, and we underestimated the traffic in downtown Houston! We checked into our hotel, threw our clothes on and tried to get to the church. The streets in Houston are pretty tough to navigate though. So, you can call us the fashionably-late Tyre family. We tip-toed into the wedding at , oh, 4:15 ish!!! But hey, we did get there, right? The wedding was beautiful. Greg's Aunt Ola Mae attends a lovely Episcopal church and it was still all decorated from Christmas. It was so pretty and I bet the bride will be thrilled with her pictures. After the ceremony, we all drove to a dinner reception and that is where the real fun took place. The food was awesome and the drink wasn't too bad either ;) ! There was dancing and lots of laughing. Noah even took a tumble down the stairs!!! I posted a few pictures from our evening! The first one is my SIL Brenda and me! The second is beautiful Madeline! The third is Meredith and her cousin Trent. Do you see how thrilled she was that her mom took a picture of her dancing with a BOY? Noah got into the action too. In fact, I am told that he was out there break dancing at one point. That boy is an energizer bunny!!! He also danced with daddy, Uncle Ike, mommy and anyone else that would spin him around! The last one is of course, Greg and me! Don't we look cute? We had so much fun dancing. The music was mainly country ( we were in Houston of course)! I was surprised at how many songs I remembered from my days of loving country music. We literally stayed on the dance floor through the last song! All in all , it was a fun night. The next day we attended a family reunion and then loaded back in the car to come home. Unfortunately, the fun stopped at that point, and it was a VERY long trip home. I am happy to say that the weary travelers are planning to stay put for awhile. If someone wants to see us, they can come here! We have a very nice guest room! :) *Disclaimer....none of the pictures were taken with my new camera. I didn't want to lug it around so I brought my p & s. Madeline and Noah each took their share of pictures too. I had to go through and delete all of Noah's since I really didn't want a picture of the floor and the waiter's backside!!! ;)

Wow, what a fast trip! I know the trip home must have been exhausting! I know it was worth it though!
