Schlitterbaun

We showed the guys Texas State, the univetsity we both graduated from. And of course had to take them to Schlitterbaun, one of the first water parks...and the worlds best! Anytime girls would hear them talk....we would have to hear to whole 90 questions and 'please please talk in french'.....oh la la.


 Theres a river that runs by the university that we used to go hang out at.

 
i just thought this salon was cute when we were walking around the San Marco square. 



The original section of schlitterbahn uses river water in its rides.....so cold!

Corsica Meets Texas Part 2

Part 1 was when my corsican Bff, Claudia, came to visit a couple years ago.....now her younger brother, Jean-Philippe, and his friend, Louis, are coming. However, they are coming for 6 weeks to be submerged in English because they will be seniors this year! Claudia and her husband, Nouass, are taking them to the Paris airport today and they will be here monday night! Matt thought it would be a good idea to blog about their journey, English learning and Texas adventures for their parents to see.


Matt and sadie building bunkbeds for the guys!
