Galveston Beach House '10

My parents rented a beach house in Galveston again this summer, and we had a wonderful time. The kids enjoyed being beach bums.

Crabbing was an ongoing activity...we ate A LOT of crab!

This was a group picture gone bad:-)

Ivy loves playing in the sand. She would spend the whole day digging and building.

Isabel has turned out to be a good beach dog. She stays right with us, plays in the water and bird watches...

Beach Trip With The Swanson Trio

Early trip to the beach this summer. Fun in the sand.
Working together.

Tea Pary

Ivy was invited to a Tea Party birthday party for a friend on our block. You can't tell from the first picture, but she did have a good time.
One of the games was to see who could build the biggest sugar cube you can tell, it was not Ivy;-(
Learning how to use a tea cup.

Party hats were made. Yes, those are birds on top.

Bring Your Child To Work Day

Izaac always has a great time during "Bring Your Child to Work Day" with Tobie. They really seem to have a great day planned for the kids...Good marketing for future scientists:-) Izaac with a future Lunar Rover...Might be in the scrap yard now:-(

Visiting with an Astronaut.

Trying on his future work uniform. He has a little bit of growing still to do.

This day is a BIG hit with Izaac! Can't wait for next year.

It Has Been Awhile

Well I have not been blogging lately due to a computer issue. My computer got a virus, had to start computer from factory settings and it has been taking awhile to get it back to a functioning level for me:-) that it is resolved I have to go back and blog.
