Keeping your sanity during a family reunion? Priceless.
I love my family, but 10 days in one house with 8 people, one baby, two dogs, and one puppy... It can get a little stressful at times.
Owen and I did so much and went so many places and I had no migraines and no panic attacks. I was able to go places all day long (one day I even woke up at 5:00 with Owen and we were out until 11:00 at night!). We went to the Galleria (think mall on steroids) in Houston, we went to church, and even went to the Nutcracker ballet! Never could I have ever thought I would have been able to keep up with my family like that without the crashes I used to experience.
Owen did great on the airplanes, but I'm planning on making our travel stories their own post entirely.
Here is our trip, told through pictures! I know there are more pictures somewhere and I'll add them to our facebook page when I get a hold of them. Enjoy!
|Snoozing at lunch in Houston with a family friend - Owen attracted lots of attention here, we had people come talk to us at our table and as we were leaving I heard one man tell his wife, "See! I told you there was a dog here!"|
