Happy Birthday To Me!!!

I had to go to Kennedy Space Center in Florida this week for some NASA meetings. Unfortunately, I was away from home on my birthday. After a long day at work, I got back to the Marriott to find that my wonderful wife had sent me a birthday cookie! It was such a great surprise!

Needless to say, after a fantastic seafood meal (consisting of alligator tail, lobster bisque, and rock shrimp) with my colleagues we all enjoyed the dessert! THANKS JESSICA!

We head to Pisa and Lucca tomorrow and in 2 days we will be going to Rome! We will have 3 days there before flying back home. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and we will talk to you guys when we get back to Texas.

Jessica's Birthday Weekend

Jessica's Birthday was this past Saturday and her parents came into town. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun and ate a lot of food! A family friend (Betty) from Rusk came up from her weekend bay house in Galveston and spent Saturday with us.

We ended up going to the South Shore Dockside Food and Wine Festival (http://www.southshorefestival.com/) and having a lot of fun. Then, we went to a local restaurant in Kemah, ate dinner, and then crashed someone's private birthday party! So many good laughs!

Tulsa Gun Show

I went with Dad and two of his friends this weekend to the Tulsa Gun Show (http://www.tulsaarmsshow.com/). Let me just say...."WOW!" The Tulsa Convention Center was huge and they had it absolutely packed full of people selling every type of gun and knife you could imagine. I saw some shotguns selling for over $50,000 each (even one listed at $80,000!). Needless to say, we didn't come home with any of those. HAHA!

The only picture I was able to take was of the big "Tulsa Driller" that stands outside the convention center....no cameras were allowed inside.

We went to the show both Saturday and Sunday and walked countless miles up and down each ailse of the 11-acre show. We had a BLAST!

Flooding In Houston!

Well, there was lots of rain today in Houston! I believe there is suppose to be more on the way tonight. It took me about 1 hour and 10 minutes to get home (a drive that usually takes no longer than 10 minutes). Jessica and I took a stroll around the neighborhood to assess the damage. Check out those pics!
