On their first ever considerable family road trip, the Cupits went to Houston to visit the Rees family and to attend a wedding for the Gerage Family. Both events were worthwhile reasons to attempt the 5 hour ride in the car. Thanks to "Ratatootie" and Peter Pan, plus a few other library rentals...the trip was pretty much a cinch. One thing the Cupits learned though - there is no such thing as a quick bite to eat or a quick stop for gas when you are traveling with little ones. Despite rather long stops, the family stayed in good spirits and the mini-vacation was wonderful.
The Rees family lives in the beautiful suburb of The Woodlands. While there, the kids played with their much-missed pal Michael. They went to a mini splash park in a posh shopping center and to a fantastic indoor park in a gigantic Methodist Church. It is true that things are bigger in Texas! Mom Elina and Dad David generously entertained the children so Brad and Maren could attend the wedding at the Houston Temple. The sunshine made for some beautiful wedding pictures.
