My mom's new house in Tomball, TX is a cute ranch house on 3 gorgeous acres, with a really nice pool, full of cool trees and flowers.
this spider is about 4 inches in diameter & he had about 4 little dinners wrapped up in his web.
Mike and I picked up my dad and sister Julia for a day on the beach in Bolivar, just across on the ferry from Galveston.
My dad and Julia after swimming. The water was perfect - not too cold, not too warm, great waves.
We made sand turtles, Julia's was named Billy Joe Bob Jr. , while the one we made together was named Shelly.
Like a 1000 birds on a wire.
Stopped in St. Paul for a quick visit with Emily (Brighton High!) and Madeleine and Jonathan. Cute house in a cute neighborhood. We payed at the playground. The only photo i took was in the airport though:
Returned to Fairbanks which was at a not-too-bad temp of 30F, although it still made me wonder why we live here. i'm better now.
