What I learned on Summer Vacation

  • Invest in a full body suit if you ever plan on going tubing for 5+ hours. Otherwise, you will burn the entire front half of your body. Including your feet. And you might not be able to walk for two days.
  • Take a note from the Peterson clan and pack 4 coolers for 11 people tubing 5+ hours. (We had more food than I have in my entire house. We had two kinds of sandwiches, 3 kinds of sandwich crackers, goldfish, cheez-its, pecan wheels, nectarines, plums, 2 kinds of grapes, cherries, and pineapple!)
  • Add cream cheese to everything. It will probably make it better.
  • Big Lou's Pizza is the best pizza on the PLANET! (It's a pizza place in South San Antonio that was featured on Travel Channel's Man vs. Food for having a 42 inch pizza!)
  • How to play Cadillac/31!
  • Time spent with family and friends is the best time.
These gems of knowledge were accumulated while Adam and I stayed in San Antonio for a 4 day vacation. My sister and brother-in-law came down from Denver and we all stayed at my sister's best friend's house outside of La Vernia, TX. It was a great vacation filled with food, fun, food, TOOBING (that's how I'm obligated to spell it) and food. Special thanks to Rachel and Ben for making it all possible! And thank you Pawelek's who graciously opened their home to all of us! Love yall!


  1. LOVE the layout! And sounds like the vacay was fun!

  2. So glad y'all had a great time. So how bad are the blisters?
    love the new background. love you!

  3. it was amazing!!
    the blisters have barely started. and i think the massive MASSIVE amounts of aloe vera gel that i applied right after the burn have helped limit the amount of peeling. im so glad!

  4. Love the new layout, chicky!! Sounds like y'all had a great time (minus the sunburn...). Hope we can catch each other soon! P.S. - do you have Skype??
