Holidays with the Warren's

Boy, this family knows how to have a good time!

Family fun at the Heard museum

We were in Texas for 2 1/2 weeks and loved every minute of it, but we are still recuperating.

Dad and Mom - looking good!
No trip to Texas is complete unless you visit Mom and Dad in Granbury.

Lots of wonderful food and drink, plus a visit to the American Legion for some shuffleboard.

Christmas in Texas
Mom's always the big winner of course, but we keep trying.

Love that Texas BBQ

Plus, you have to visit the RibShack in Acton - great Texas BBQ. Just be sure to pack your own cooler.
The guys enjoying the Cowboy Stadium tour
The guys all had a special treat - a tour of the Dallas Cowboy stadium. They all loved it and would go again - even Doug the Steelers fan.

Gavin and Doug - Starfighter pilots
You gotta check out Dave and Busters arcade - so many wonderful games, plus you win tickets for fabulous (not) prizes.

And, they serve food and drinks - perfect for the whole family.
Ryan looking for a ride to Hawaii

We also had fun playing games, singing, and lots and lots of exciting 42 matches.

A special treat was listening to Dave and Ryan jamming on their guitars - beautiful music.

Enjoying the brewery tour!
11 am seems like a strange time to join in on the Franconia brewery tour, but not for our family.

$5 and all of the beer you can drink. Why not?

Then off to the Oklahoma casino for a night of gambling. Sorry, no big winners in the house.

Celebrating Anessa's Birthday

Besides Christmas, we had lots of birthdays to celebrate: Anessa, Dad, Conner, and Gavin's.

Ryan and Becky - love this picture

So fun to be together for the celebrations, plus all of the wonderful homemade desserts - yum.

Besides having fun, this family can eat!

Gavin taming the dino

Gavin was the youngest family member at the party and he had a great time being spoiled by all of the relatives.

Seems like we took turns sneaking him treats. What's family for anyway?

Conner and Phil - a couple of Cowboys

Hard to believe that Conner (next youngest) is 17 now and driving - watch out.

Just kidding - he is driving well and doing excellent in school.

We are proud of you Conner!

Danette and Phil relaxing

Danette, Phil, and Conner had to leave first and we sure missed them. Really happy that they were able to join us though.

Hopefully, they will visit us in French Poly. We would love to show them all of the wonderful islands!

Becky and Dave - true love...
Becky and Dave were excellent hosts and made sure we all had a wonderful holiday. Thanks for opening up your beautiful home to our crazy family.

It was a Christmas to remember for sure. Love you guys!

Now, we are back on Moondance and it is time to get busy. We are leaving in the morning for Oahu. We will be hitting the streets looking for employment, plus we have a big list of boat projects to work on.

Our vacation is over (for now).
