Off to West Texas

Wes and I went to West Texas (Midland) this past weekend to see one of his cousins get married. He wasn't too excited about the wedding...he wanted me to see West Texas. It wasn't a traditonal trip because they have had more rain than we have so it was much greener and cooler than it is supposed to be. I didn't get any pictures during the wedding...but here are a few from our trip.

On our started raining and I loved the sunset.

Another view of the sunset...and wind turbines.

A wide open field with NO trees.

Lots of oil wells EVERYWHERE!

Another shot of the wind turbines as we were on our way back. There were TONS of them out there...pretty cool to see!

Fun Times...

My sister came to visit for a week. It was so good to have her here. We stayed a busy. We went and got a pedicure the day she arrived....that was nice to do together. Then the next day we went and saw Up in 3D which we really enjoyed. Later that day we went swimming and layed out. Then the next day we went and saw The Hangover, went to eat at Olive Garden, and went bowling. Fun day! Then we left early on Sat. morning to go tubing on the Guadalupe River. It was the perfect day and the river wasn't that cold. Then we went to San Antonio for the evening and went to the Riverwalk. We ate at Hard Rock Cafe on the Riverwalk and just walked around. We had a great time. On the way back the next day we stopped at the San Marcos Outlets and then came back to College Station. We watched Slumdog Millionaire that night...we liked it! On her last full day we layed out again and then had Schlotzsky's for dinner since she had never had it. We had to take her to the airport the next morning. She was here for a week and it went by too fast. Here are a few pictures from her visit.

The 3 of us before we got in the river to tube.

Me and Jill...she had just gotten stuck on a rapid and had to get out of her tube so she is holding on to me now so she doesn't get left behind again.
