Laura, the kids and I have made the decision to move from San Antonio, TX to Tennessee. Dandridge, TN to be exact. We’ll be moving “officially” in mid-June, once the kids are out of school for the year. It’s bittersweet. On the one hand, we are looking forward to the new adventure, but on the other hand I will miss my family tremendously.

South Padre Island

DCI Semi-finals

We went to the skydeck of the Sears Tower and saw the awesome view, then had some delicious stuffed pizza. After our 2PM lunch, I paid $26 to leave the parking garage after 3 hours! Oh yeah! And we saw a poor old lady fall and bust her head open in a souvenier shop. [Read More]

The Shedd Aquarium

We are at the Shedd Aquarium. It’s awesome! Puts Sea World to shame. Especially since it’s air conditioned! They have a HUGE selection of animals here. Chicago’s museums are so cool!
