The past couple days we have experienced some bits of South Texas culture. Yesterday we went with my Grandma Renaud to eat at a barbecue place called Rudy’s. And today we visited the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.
Well, we have been enjoying the Republic of Texas for the past 2 days.
On Sunday we flew into Houston to visit with Yoli’s friend Sonja and her husband Jody and their two children. The flight itself went very well with no problems from Jadzia or Ludi. In fact, this may have been one of the best flights we’ve had in our post-childbirth era. 🙂
This year we went down to San Antonio to introduce Jadzia to all her family down there. She met her grandmothers, many great aunts and uncles, and cousins. She also got to participate in a surprise 70th birthday party for her Grandnanny. Jadzia also went swimming in her Grandnanny’s pool almost every day. It was a wonderful trip and we enjoyed every minute of it. We just wish it would rain down there and the drought would end.

I put together a couple short videos from stuff that happened recently. For those of you in San Antonio, we intend to make longer versions of these and other videos and ship them to you on DVDs very soon. (Viewing these movies requires the most recent version of Apple’s QuickTime software)
Jadzia’s first birthday
After moving into our house, the first thing we did was have a birthday party for Jadzia. Her grandparents and her cousin and aunt and uncle were able to attend.
Jadzia in the pool
When we traveled to San Antonio a few weeks ago, we were very much looking forward to taking Jadzia into the pool with us. Here are a few quick clips of her in action. Please try to ignore the blindingly white dad next to her on the screen.
