Matt and I got to go skiing with some friends from Lubbock, Kathy and Cary Eubanks. Matt and Kathy were in school together in Lubbock. She is now a pathology resident and her husband is the Gin manager for Slaton. They are true friends. We can always catch up right where we left off from the last time we saw them, no matter how long it has been. Here are some pics of us skiing on Lake Alan Henry. While you're looking at the pictures you can imagine how sore we were afterward. We haven't been in over 5 years!!! But we did surprisingly good. Matt skied, wakeboarded, and kneeboarded. and was good at all of them. I kneeboarded for the first time. Got up pretty easily. It was pretty fun while I was on the board, but then I busted hard. I mean went white and then realized I was underwater and didn't know which way was up. Good thing lifejackets are made to take you to the top!!! I opted out of kneeboarding the rest of the day. However, I did ski and it was tons of fun. Matt on the wake board. He looks pretty cool!!
Me on the skis. I love being on the water!
Cary on the wake board. He is a pro!
I have some cool footage of Matt and Kathy skiing together and doing tricks, but I have tried a million times to get blogger to upload the video!

A wedding at the beach!

My cousin Natalie got married this past month at Crystal Beach near Galveston. Here Matt and I are with Natalie and her new husband Jason. The entire family was there for an extended weekend. So much fun! I love being with my aunts and uncles and all my cousins. We have a blast together. I can't wait until the next time we are all in one place.Here are my sister and I with our cute hubbies!!!
And then, Matt and I attempted some family photos. Not many turned out, but we really like this one because it was snapped without us knowing and we are being ourselves. Who knows what I was telling him!!
And yes, Matt got to do some bay fishing. Fishing is what makes him super relaxed and super happy. Next to spend time with me of course! He caught this triple tail bass. It is very rare to catch this fish in the bay so it was a neat catch.
We took it home and cooked it along with some other fish he caught and surprisingly it was very good!
What a fun weekend with the fam.
