Madison here – and, yes that’s right we are BACK and ready to share our adventure with ya’ll! We had a fun time and loved seeing my cousins!

IMG_0360On the road with sunshine pouring in the windows!

IMG_0361Pretty neat, right? Boy, Emilie looks like an angel!

IMG_0365We’re now on the highway…zoom!


My brother, Russell, brought a neat little LEGO sticker book. Look at the one on my nose! XD


 Ooh, this LEGO lady is cute.

IMG_0368I also gave Emilie a sticker. It looks just like her! It’s a princess. Emilie wanted to sit down on the ground so I let her. :)


IMG_0372We’re now at Granddad’s house! We switched cars. We all rode with Granddad in his car and left our car at his house.

IMG_0373Then we stopped at McDonalds after a while when it was lunchtime.

IMG_0374Neat stickers. I let Emilie wear some, but I didn’t let her where anything with the skulls/crossbones/freakish stuff on it.

IMG_0375Oh! What a cutie!


Me wearing some more stickers on my face XD :p :P Along with a “JEDI KNIGHT” sticker Russell gave me from his ANGRY BIRDS STARWARS Happy Meal stickers.



IMG_0521(we took this with the iPad mini) wow, look at Emilie. (did you know this took over 5 shots to get this picture? The car kept bumping, jostling the focus. LOL!)

IMG_0381After something like four hours, with music, school, stories to listen to, and games on the ipads, WE WERE GETTING NEAR. See this beautifulness? I mean, really, you’d never see this back at home. Look at those hills! Yes, hills. They look like MOUNTAINS!

IMG_0382A cross…. <3 (but not the same cross we saw at Our Grand Adventure.)

IMG_0386Aw, do you want some attention Emmi? You’re so cute, laying down like that, your eyes half shut. :)

IMG_0391WOW! Pretty!!!

IMG_0392I rolled down my window ’cause I wanted to feel the wind.

Aww, poor Emilie XD


IMG_0396Emilie: *COUGH COUGH COUGH* *Pffffft**sputters* Heyyyy!!!!




IMG_0401Emilie: Oooh! Look where I get to stay!

We had so much fun playing pool, petting their cat Sapphire, walking their dogs, Max and Lucky, and eating dinner.


I’m going to my cousin, Connor’s, football game now. Go Bandera Bulldogs!


We come back and change into our PJ’s. Don’t I look great? XD :) :) (BTW, Connor’s team didn’t win. :( )


We wake up bright ‘n early! Well, OK, maybe not that early, we had a long trip yesterday. But it was still morning outside, that counts right? XD

IMG_0407I got to sleep on a mattress on the ground, and my brother Russell in a bunk bed, and then my mom on the bed under the top bunk. I know, confusing.

IMG_0408Look at Emilie’s outfit! SWEET!


We then watched Ice Age 2. Ehh, it was OK, definitely not the best in my opinion, but OK.

IMG_0410Now we’re going to walk Max and Lucky, Uncle Steve, Connor, Aunt Judi, and Stevie’s dogs. :)

IMG_0411But first my crazy brother and cousin have to create a crazy game of pool. You can’t hurry that.

IMG_0415 IMG_0416 IMG_0435 IMG_0434 IMG_0433 IMG_0426 IMG_0421 IMG_0419….Interesting. Now can we go on that walk?

IMG_0460We come back from the walk. Awww! Sapphire is so cute! She’s looking at you with the evil eye….. 0.o just kidding. She’s just a huge cute furball!

IMG_0462Now we watch Evan Almighty. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than Ice Age 2, if you ask me. Well, no one asked me, but hey, it’s my site! *dances*


We go on another REALLY LONG walk. I’M POOPED! Must get water!


Then we have yummy fondue!


Then we watch Secretariat!

IMG_0468Of course gorgeous Sapphire needed some attention too :P

IMG_0470Then I put Emilie to bed. :)

And that’s the end…

of Part One!

Stay tuned for Part Two! :D

Do you like to visit your cousins and relatives?
