A Gust-A-Vin Weekend!

We're back from the beach and still dreaming of the island lifestyle - less the hurricane Gustav threats, that is. Our friends Jenn, Jason & Ansley from Austin met us down in Galveston and we stayed at a beach house together on the west end of the island. Here's a photo recap of some of the things that we did.

Clung To Our Babies At the Beach 
(so they wouldn't eat sand, shells, seaweed or the saltwater - yes, they tried it all!)

Ate Birthday Cupcakes Al Fresco at Sunrise (easy cleanup with the hose!)

Recruited Some Awesome UTMB Students to Babysit so the Parents Could Enjoy the Beach & Dinner Out!
Enjoyed a Quiet Sunset at the Waterman Restaurant

Mari, love the pic of you guys on the beach...looks like to much fun! Thanks for your thoughts for Jenn, I'll make sure she knows that the great state of Texas has her covered with prayers! Thanks too for the encouragement you've given her since this journey started...you have always been so kind to her and it doesn't go unnoticed!

We have loved watching the quads grow over the year. Thanks for taking us along on all the fun! Ian's absolute favorite video is still "At the park with Jazz". We have to watch it at least 2 - 3 times every time we check out the blog together. May God continue to bless your family, guide you as parents and fill you with the love of Christ.
