Meet the Family---Part Two

You may remember a few weeks ago when I met Ron's youngest son, Tyler.    That was great and he has been here for several weeks.   Part two of meeting the family was last weekend, when the three of us traveled to San Marcos, TX to meet up with Ron's daughter, Carmelle and her family.  Being the only daughter in my family, I fully understand how close a father-daughter relationship can be and also how tense it could be to introduce someone new to the crowd.   But, I also knew that if Carmelle was anything like her dad, things would be alright.   We spent several days together, mostly at the Schlitterbahn Water Park in New Braunfels, and it was so much fun.  Carmelle is a smart, beautiful girl who seems to be an awesome mother to her two children, M and A.  Her husband, Chad, was lots of fun, too and we all had a great time eating, tubing, swimming, visiting and playing cards.  Of course, I couldn't keep up with a real camera while we were in the park, so I had to rely on a few shots with Ron's phone.

Back at the hotel, Carmelle and Chad set the kids up with movies each night while the bigger people played some serious games of Phase 10!  I must say that we ladies gave those guys a good run for their money, with Carmelle being the big winner!

My favorite moments:  Sunday morning, after breakfast, we all decided to take naps before checking out at noon.  Just as we settled down with the Olympics on tv, a knock on the door brought A to our room.  She crawled up in the bed and proceeded to play the games on my iPhone (being a preschool teacher came in handy on this trip).  Before long, another knock on the door brought M in also.  He crawled up to nap with Tyler, complete with his new race car helmet on his head.
