Searle Girl Trip!

Every year the girls in my family get together for a trip. This year we went to Texas. I have two sister-in-laws that live in Austin and my sister Arianne just moved to San Antonio. We met in San Antonio and did all the things that constitute a girl vacation... shopping, getting nails done, eating and more shopping. I was there for 7 days and we had dessert every single night and sometimes twice.
After a few days my sister-in-laws had to head back so my mom, sister and I got to hang out an extra day. I stayed in Texas a whole week so that I could spend some one on one time with my sister since we haven't had that in a really long time. Even though it has tough being away from Justin I'm glad that I did!We went to down town San Antonio along the Riverwalk. LOVE this place.
There were really cool outdoor restaurants and live music.
I've mentioned before on my blog that my sister is my 'mom encyclopedia'. I call her at least every other day with a question. She is so great with Camden and he obviously loves every minute of aunt bonding time. It was so fun to stay at her house and hang out with her kiddos.
One afternoon when we were outside playing basketball with the kids I looked over and saw Camden doing this...
This kid is like a puppy. He has to lick all objects that come near him. He usually does this to his car seat. Funny little boy. It was a great trip and I can't wait for next year!!

If you are wondering to yourself why Justin and my face masks look so weird that would be because they are for little kids. My husband is such a good sport. He always goes along with my overexcitement for all holidays and gets into it with me. Although he complained about the cape I made him wear for a good two weeks beforehand you better believe that HE was the one running around a parking lot that night with it flying behind him in the wind. He secretly loved it. You're not fooling anyone babe!
Couldn't decide what to make Camden be for Halloween, a superhero or pea in the pod so....
Luckily he had plenty of opportunities to be both!
In my scheming not only did I get a grown man to wear a child's costume and a cape BUT I also got the entire Neumann family to think that they had to be in costume to go to this Halloween brunch for kids.
We were the only adults in costume Ha! It was awesome! Fortunatley, they were all good sports about it and we all had a blast.
