The Pictures

On our drive down to Texas, we passed by this sign. Tyson immediately pulled over. For a second I thought we were being pulled over for speeding or something, but if you'll notice the name of the company is "Oblad" spelled backwards! Weird.

Tyson missed the "slight right" we were supposed to take according to mapquest and we ended up on a windy 2 lane road for about 15 miles until we realized we weren't on the right highway. Tyson then turned around and we were on our way back down when we heard a liquidy noise coming from Lawson. We both looked back to find this poor boy. We pulled over as he was still upchucking and got him out of the car. Tyson washed his hands, arms, legs, and feet off while I tackled his carseat. He had just drank a sippy cup of fruit punch so it was still fresh in his stomach and didn't stink, thank goodness! We changed his clothes and we were off again. The next day we went to McDonald's for lunch. We had to coax Lawson to eat his hamburger and he had eaten about half of it. I was done so I went to use the bathroom. When I came back out Lawson was standing up on the booth bench and Tyson was standing up next to the table. There was puke everywhere! All over the table, seat, and floor. Lawson only had a little bit on his clothes and a little bit on Tyson's leg and shorts. Good thing we were the only customers eating at the time so no one got lunch and a show. So apparently Lawson gets car sick. I officially feel more momish now that I've had to clean up after public puking. Sorry if the picture/story grossed you out. :)

We went to the Albuquerque Zoo and had a great time.

Our cute little sweetie.

Lawson has been a stinker and hasn't been wanting his picture taken.

Watching the lion.

The cool lion.

We went through Roswell, New Mexico where aliens landed in 1947 and there have been several UFO sightings ever since! There was a little gift shop inside Walmart selling all sorts of alien souvenirs. They had a museum but we didn't have time to go through it. It was an interesting city.

We rolled up to Corpus Christi and Lawson was so excited to see the beach so we pulled over for a minute for him to get out and see it.

Scared inside the shark mouth.

Another forced picture. :)

Tyson dug a hole for Makayla to sit in. She was so comfortable she fell asleep! These beach pictures are all kind of fuzzy because it was so humid.

Tyson really really really wanted to dig a hole. Before we left he bought this shovel specifically for the beach. Don't ask me, I don't know why. :) Lawson loves digging, so they were both in digging heaven!

I bugged Tyson while in the "digging zone" with my picture taking! :)

After digging the hole, they dug a waterway to where the tide was coming in so that the water would fill the hole up. It was supposedly the coolest thing ever!

We went swimming after the beach in the hotel swimming pool.
It's been a fun trip so far. We'll keep you all posted!
