Wow.... What a week. In case, some do not know, my grandfather passed away last Wednesday. Therefore, T and I made a quick trip home. The memorial was very nice (or at least as nice as it could be under the circumstances). And it was great to see all my family and friends- again, not under the circumstances. While, I know he is in peace, it is still very hard to not have him around and I will certainly miss him. I am just so happy that I was given so many years to have my grandpa Johnson in my life.

Travis had quite the week... filled with sporting events! First, he had "play-offs" for his Flag-Football League! They played a tough few games and walked away the 2nd-place champions, which unfortunately did not get them a t-shirt but they did, however, beat the only undefeated team in the league!! Yeah team!! :)
But the big deal of the week was the annual DFW Mud Run!
An exciting 6.2ish mile race filled with all sorts of obstacles (like rolling through mud, going up over walls, climbing ropes, and wading through rivers). Travis and some buddies did the race for the second time! Again, it was a success and they even cut some time!! CONGRATS!!

For Easter my wonderful husband and my equally wonderful sister, Kathryn, planned a little surprise (which Travis ended up telling me about any-how) vacation mini-trip to Georgia over the Easter weekend. So Travis and I packed up the car and headed out Thursday. We arrived later that Thurs.. making great time!
So on Friday we went hiking on a beautiful trail (Kathryn's fav!). It was a great workout (7.5 miles of hills-to be exact!) and a wonderful time.. and absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Here's proof:
Then we visited UGA.. in Athens! We hit up some Georgian Antebellum Mansions (and pretended to be Southern Belles). And we browsed through the downtown!
Finally, we helped Kathryn throw a wonderful Easter Dinner and just spent some quality time with her! (I am soooo... lucky to have such a wonderful sister!)
The ONLY bad thing about the trip was leaving her when it ended! I love you, sis!
