We had an exciting week last week. We decided to take off for a couple of days to go to Galveston, TX. It was nice to be able to dip our toes in the 'ocean' (the monkeys don't understand the difference between the ocean and the Gulf yet) and play in the sand. Getting away, if even for a few days, does wonders for your emotional well being.
Meanwhile, we had some sneaky family members decide to surprise us with a visit. Much to their surprise (and our disappointment), we weren't home. Luckily, we were planning on heading home the day after their arrival and they extended their trip by a day. Monkey girl and Bro Bro monkey were delighted to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa. Grandpa even let the monkeys (and Dadda monkey and I) ride in his big truck.
