Texas Vacation... only a month late

LAST month, Brad, Coops, and I took a vacation to Texas.  As you know, the middle of our trip was a little dramatic with a surprise hospitalization, but before that, we had a great time!  We arrived late Sunday afternoon.  Monday evening we had a crawfish boil with Ritt and Chelsea, because that's just what we do when we're together.

Mmmm.... crawfish:


Cooper LOVED hanging out with Chelsea!


And Ritt



We ate crawfish, but Cooper ate alligator.


Celeste stopped by!!


The next day, Tuesday, we went to the lake in R and C's boat.  At first, Cooper was NOT a fan of his life jacket.



But then he was ok with it.



Cooper and mommy!



Love, love, love his little seersucker bathing suit!!



Mmmm, a toy that I can chew on that floats, just in case.

 The men:



He does have a lot of hair:


Chelsea "driving" the boat:


Ritt was the only one brave enough to get in; it was COLD!



We were the only people on the lake.  It was awesome.




Then little man had to take a nap.



That night, we went to NIOSA, one of our favorite Fiesta events.  We saw Amber and Jeff:




Chelsea and I got cascarones to use on the guys, but we of course had to use them on each other!



Favorite picture of the trip; this is so us:




Brad and Chelsea bring out the goofy in each other:






Not that Brad and Ritt are any better:






That night, we had to take Cooper to the hospital.  But after we made it to Houston, we had more fun times!  The men: Brad, Austin, and Ethan.  Cooper, unfortunately was asleep.




Compared to his cousins, Cooper is a GIANT!!





This one is my favorite; not sure why:



I took this just because it is amazing we have kept Cooper alive as long as we have.  I found him like this, with his blanket over his head.


Cooper and his Nana.



Other than our brief hospital stay, we really did have a fun and memorable trip!!
