What is your favorite place that you have traveled to?
This is a hard one. I have LOVED just about everywhere that I have travelled.

I loved the way the beach and mountains were mixed in Haiti. The people there were SO kind. I loved the simplicity of life there. And I loved hiking in dresses. =)

I really liked the "weirdness" of Amsterdam...and the canals and tulips and daffodils and bike riding...and chocolate and bread and gummy bears and pancakes...

I LOVE the people that Emily and I were nannies for and became friends with in Germany!!! And we loved riding the buses and walking everywhere...that goes for a lot of the places I've been! We also loved eating crepes and kabobs there.

The beauty of Gimmelwald, Switzerland is by far the most majestic and amazing place I've ever seen. We loved hiking there (AFTER we dropped off our ROLLING SUITCASE at the hotel- stupid, stupid, stupid...never take a suitcase to a tiny, remote village in Switzerland. A backpack would have been MUCH more ideal...DUH! =)) We felt like we were in the story "Heidi" while we were there. The beauty of those mountains is breath-taking! And the little mountain men who carry hay on their backs and the cows with bells around their necks...it's all surreal. And the cheese! Mmmm... I HAVE to go back there one day! And I think everybody else should too!!!

The culture in Turkey was unlike anything I had ever been exposed to before. The people were extremely hospitable and would have us over to their homes for tea. I LOVED visiting the seven churches in Revelation - old ruins like you see on the History Channel. It was AMAZING to BE where people in the Bible had ACTUALLY BEEN! Something else I would LOVE to do again. And I would love to take Beau, because he would really enjoy that!!!

I really enjoyed being in London for a day. I would like to go back and spend a little more time there. But one of my favorite memories of that little day trip was riding the ferry past the white cliffs of Dover, then riding a bus through the countryside and seeing rolling green hills with sheep scattered out on them. It looked just like "Sense and Sensibility" or some movie like that. I loved it! I got tears in my eyes...because I do things like that!

I don't think I'm leaving anywhere out overseas that I've been. But in the good ol' USA, I would have to say that my favorite place is the Grand Tetons! They're GORGEOUS! And I love vacationing in that area!!! Beau and I went camping there the summer after we were married, and we had so much fun!

How can you even consider naming your baby Carl Albert?
Like I said before, it just FLOWS...Carl Albert Waters. Just kidding. Nothing wrong with the name Carl, mind you. One of my great friend's names is Carl, but Carl Albert??? Just say it with a thick Texas accent, and you'll see what I mean. =)..."Carl Albert!" (Did you say it with an accent that time? See it was funny, wasn't it?!)

What do you like to do for fun? To relax?
For fun? Ride roller coasters!!! I LOVE roller coasters!!!!!!! I don't get to do it very often, but I LOVE it! =) I also like going to movies, camping, hiking, riding horses...the last three also being things I almost never do. =) And I LOVE laughing really hard...so whatever makes me do that I think is REALLY FUN! And that probably normally happens with the sisters.

To relax? Sleep! I love sleeping! I love hot baths, hot tubs, floating in a pool, staying in hotels (without my kid especially), pedicures, facials, massages, going to a movie or to get coffee or something without Asher (not that he's not great, but you know what I mean...).

I'm sure there are more answers for both of those things, but that's all I can think of for now.

That's all for now. I'm going to take a little nap before the kid wakes up. To be continued...

Impressive turn-around-time! And great answers! He'll always be Carl Albert to me. :)

This has been SOOOO much fun to read Sara. I love so many of the things you love. Hey, maybe you're a 'chip off the ole block' so to speak. :0)
