Hamilton Pool

I found this place called the Hamilton pool while my family was in town, so I took them. Oh my gosh, it was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, especially to swim! It used to be a cave but since the cave collapsed it's just a swimming hole. There is usually a bigger waterfall, but since we're in a drought there wasn't a lot. We packed a picnic lunch, got there at 9am and stayed all day! It was only about a 45min drive. The quarter mile hike to the cave was so beautiful. We took quite a bit of pictures. David didn't go because he was still so burnt from our trip to New Braunfels to float down the river earlier that week. He had blisters all over his chest and stomach. It was pretty bad... He's okay now though :)

Morgan wasn't too happy and wouldn't look at the camera. lol

The gang.This is robby swimming.

This is a picture off the internet of what the waterfall usually looks like when Texas actually gets rain! Beautiful!


We went to Galveston with my family one weekend this month. We had so much fun! It was so sad seeing all the damaged buildings. There was still so much damage from Hurricane Ike.

This is my mom and my aunt.

All of us eat'n lunch.

DJ loved the beach! Talk about an adventurous baby!

David attempted to make a sand castle...but finally gave up after it kept caving in :P

Morgan loved looking for seashells.

Is The Tide Turning?

Take a look at this chart, produced by Rasmussen Reports, of Obama's approval index, which is calculated by subtracting the "Strongly Disapproves" from the "Strongly Approves."

Isn't that great? All of a sudden, it's flipped from positive to negative. And the timing of the flip suggests that I wasn't the only one screaming at the TV - which was on C-SPAN, not sports - while the House passed their carbon tax bill, 219-212.

So, it looks like people are starting to wake up. But this is not time to say, "Mission Accomplished!" No, we need to be like sharks that smell blood in the water, and rip this insane socialist agenda to shreds. And to do that, you need to be involved in finding someone better suited to represent you. Do you know how your representative voted? ...Does it really matter? It seems like the ones that voted for it obviously need to go, and the ones that didn't need to go for not putting up enough of a fight. Anyway, you can find out who you need to kick out here:


And see one of the reasons they should be kicked out here:


Stay tuned for more political rantings (I just can't help myself!) and also maybe some vacation pictures. :p
