"A good time was had by all!"

My mom's side of the family has been gathering down in New Braunfels for the past 29 years and it truly is one of my favorite things about summer.   We spend our days at the pool, going to Schlitterbahn, and toobing down the river.  There is lots of eating, hanging out together, great conversations, playing games, and more eating.  I love it!

Christopher made his first trip to Schlitterbahn this year and he seemed to have a great time.  We opted not to let him go toobing this year since he still hasn't had any swimming lessons, but maybe next year...

I am so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful family.  We all get along so well and have a great time together.  Some of my most favorite and treasured memories come from Reunion and this year was no exception.  As we like to say in the King family, "A good time was had by all."

I was watching an old David Letterman interview of the lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer yesterday (do you know that band?)... he asked her where in Texas she is from and she said, "New Braunfels" and then proceeded to spell it for him (which I think is why it stuck in my mind).

I had never heard of New Braunfels, TX before yesterday and here it is again! Coinkydink! =)

Miss you!

I want to see all of the video--I could hear myself laughing at the fun and it was fun to laugh again! Thanks to the videographer. Sorry no video of the judges who were hilarious themselves!
