We drove to Tyler, Texas to spend our holiday with Jarrod's sisters.
THIS made us smile...a r.v. pulling a truck, pulling a boat, hauling bikes.
16 hours straight...we tend to get a little goofy
We stopped twice. After six hours straight, the legs are a little stiff, the bladder ready to pop, but we made great time.
With four nieces, Breyer had plenty of attention and love, and was a favorite walk partner.
Tanner was not the only one to play catch-up after a few late nights.
Visiting the bamboo forest is a favorite tradition.
Getting home their bamboo treasures is another matter.

All the cousins,fifteen strong!
The weather was beautiful, enough so to visit a Lake Tyler with very low water levels and look for treasures! (The ladder is used for beginning swimmers!)
The boys were SO cooperative
The lake bottom
Digging for treasure found by a metal detector is always exciting for boys!
