Anastacia Campos, my Great-Granma, passed away yesterday morning. She would have been 99 on May 4.

What a wonderful life she lived. I'm very thankful that she was able to meet her 2 Great-Great-Grandsons.

Tracy in TX!

We're always excited to see Tracy, even if it is just for a few hours. Since she moved to NYC (I know, I know....get a rope) we don't see her as often as we used to, but it's always like she never left when we do. CRG adores her, and had a great time playing with her. Thanks go to Uncle Robert for making crawfish, potatoes, corn, and a pork tenderloin for those wussies allergic to shellfish.

Even though I failed with my camera battery last weekend at the Zoo, I remembered that I took a few pics with my camera phone.

I pity the fool.....

That tries to call my home....during dinner try and sell us something. My sweet little Katy worked them over! Vacation Network Inc. called last night and first got me. I don't mind giving them a moment to try and do their job. I actually like messing with them a bit. Katy on the other hand, is the complete opposite. After she took the phone from me, she immediately called them out as a scam. Long story short, I had a great time watching and listening to Katy work over the poor guy on the other end of the line. I'm quite certain the telemarketer had never had an encounter like that. WAY TO GO, HONEY!! Seriously though, I don't think we'll be getting those annoying calls anytime soon.

Oh well, there goes our free 8 day, 7 night vacation PLUS round trip airfare for two. It couldn't have been free, anyways......right?

Welcome Back...

Miss us? Come on, you know you did!

So what's been going on with us you ask? Well, where do we start?

Katy and BJG spent 4 days in Ojai, CA this past weekend. Unfortunately, it was for her Great Uncle Bill's funeral. Fortunately, she was able to visit with family she hasn't seen in a VERY long time...some she had never met. I love the fact that she was able to see and go inside her Great-Grandma Consuelo's house. How cool is that!

BJG not only took his first plane trip, but also made his first trip to the beach.

While Katy and BJG were gone, CRG and I tried to stay busy. CRG got to spend Thursday evening playing with his cousin Avery while I had a work function. He came home with pink eye. =/ At least he had a great time! Friday (before we knew about the eye) CRG and I went to the Houston Zoo and the Children's Museum. I took my camera, but forgot my battery. Go ahead...tell me how awesome I am. CRG loved riding the train. The train is so much longer than I remember. As a kid, I remember riding around the lake and that's it. Now, it actually goes all the way around Hermann Park. I like how after exiting the train, you HAVE to walk through the gift shop to leave. How convenient. We sped out of there, but many other parents were suckered into their trap. Over the next few days, CRG and I did a lot of hanging out. I think that may have been more fun then our Zoo/Museum trip. Just my buddy and me.
