Bye Bye Butlers!

The Butlers left Pensacola today and we are sooo sad :( I can't believe our little vacation is coming to an end and that we are leaving to go home tomorrow.
The boys had a great time playing and doing everything together and looking forward to coming back home for Christmas!

I feel like this trip went by so quickly... there's never enough time to spend together. But now we will just have to wait until the next time we are all together! Thanks Dad for all the food and mom for watching all the kids while we were out! Love you guys!!

Meeting with DTX!

Today, Rach and I went on a sales call together... to DTX! Dan arranged for us to meet with the Exec VP of Marketing, Dan Nelson and Gene and some of his other staff was there too!
It was a ton of fun doing a sales call together with Rach-- who knows... maybe Rach will be working more with TextingForward!
Afterwards, Dan gave us a tour of the place and I can't believe how much DTX has grown! They have about 75 employees and seems to be growing strong!
Hopefully DTX will be a client of TextingForward soon... then I guess I can write all my trips off to the Butlers every year! Ha...

Magic kingdom

We just got here and waiting for the ferry to get to the magic kingdom! The boys are waiting patiently...

Gotcha!

So glad they make adults sit on the outside of the tram so they can make sure the kids are safe...

We are here in Disney!

Everyone's having a great time! It's soooo hot but we are dealing with it and just left Hollywood Studios and on our way to animal kingdom!

Will & Lisa's Wedding: July 16, 2011

Just wanted to post a few pictures from this past weekend in Pismo Beach at Will and Lisa's wedding weekend! It really was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to- the weather and scenery were just perfect! This part of the coast is gorgeous!
Will is Jeff's cousin- his dad is the brother of Sharon, Jeff's mom and Will and Lisa met at Cal Poly where they attended college.
The pic below is off Jeff's side of the family, minus the kids- and it was really good to see all of them and spend time with his grandparents who we call Memere and Pepere. This was a pic of us after the wedding and before going into the reception hall, which was also very beautiful.
At the end, we all lit sparklers to send the couple off! I am sure their photographer got some great shots... but here was one of mine :) You can find more pics from the wedding here: CLICK HERE.

Happy Birthday Jeff!

Happy birthday babe! Today is Jeff's 39th birthday and we celebrated this past weekend with a party at the house and wishing all of you were here with us! Tonight we are having a birthday dinner with just the family in honor of his day.
Vanessa came over to the house and we did a shrimp boil for Jeff (you would have LOVED it mom and dad- she spiced it JUST like the crawfish, but since they were out of season- we did shrimp!)-- this was Vanessa's present to Jeff for his birthday. Above is Paul Dove- who most of you have met- who was her sous chef! Everything came out perfect- the potatoes, corn, sausage and of course shrimp were delicious!
Everyone devoured the shrimp and there was only a little bit left-- but ALL the food was delicious including Rose's spinach  and strawberry salad, taco dip, Jeff's sliders and baked chicken and the numerous deserts we had!
We had some special guests come including Maribel Rayos Normand and my friend from grade school- Eva Lawson and her husband come... it was so great to see everyone!
Thanks to everyone who came to help celebrate, ate and helped clean up! We missed you Shay, Rog and all of our family who couldn't make it! Love and miss you guys
