bein' awesome in austin

We went to visit my brother and his family last week in Austin TX. We had a BLAST, we learned a smidge of what it was like to live in 105 degree weather (PLUS humidity...woof). GAH! It was sticky. It didn't stop us, maybe slowed us down a little. But we got to see and do lots of fun things. Most of them had to do with water(and food, yummy restaurants and treats is Austin). If you happen to ask Rosie about Texas she will tell you all about the choo choo train, snow cone, and tickets. I think that was her favorite part. It was so fun to get our fill of our favorite Texas family, we love them and miss them to pieces. Don't grow up or do anything fun until we see you again! Deal? Deal.

Lay over in Denver...


Chooo chooo...all aboard the Zilker Zepher

buckets of fun for EVERYONE(especially Scotty boy)

i eat kids

I don't actually eat them but I have the urge to. Not actually eat but chew on them, just lightly bite them. I won't do it to your kids unless I get permission, unless you are family and then your kids are fair game... No wonder Rosie has a problem with biting her sister, she has biting confusion because I am constantly chewing on her. Anyway this post is pretty much just about my kids again. I am just feeling really selfish for keeping all these cute pictures to myself, they are piling up. I am just being so generous aren't I??
Dora, Dora, Dora, you've never looked better.

You try telling her she is too old for a baba...go ahead and try saying no to that face!

Oh boy I could go all night with these pictures but I'll save some for later. This is what we've been up to the last few months. Hope it was entertaining to all and to all a good night.

Dave is in a play

There will be a lot of reading for the next few months. Dave is in rehearsals for a play, reading will be one of the things that will help me not lose my mind. So far I have my mind intact, lets hope it last for the next couple months...fat chance. Anyway, stumbled onto this author, and I am glad I did. Just the kind of novels that are easy, clean and have interesting enough story lines to keep me happily distracted.

Never Change. This one was about a lady who has kind of a lonely life. She is a nurse and really enjoys her work. She is assigned to a new patient who ends up being someone she knew in high school who is dying of cancer. It was a fun read.

Home Safe. This was a good one too. Didn't like it AS much as the other one, but still an enjoyable enough read, about a mom coming to terms with her husbands death.

Joy School. This one was my favorite of the three. I don't know exactly why...her character was just so darling. It's about a 12 going on 13 year old girl and her perspective of being the new kid in school, and that painful transition into the world of preteen hood. It was sweet, and Berg really has a unique way of capturing that youthful way of thinking and making it amusing enough to read as an adult. It reminded me in a small way of one of my all time favorite books Stargirl. Couldn't put it down.

The Weight of Water. This one was kind of an historical-ish novel. The event the main character is assigned to do photographs for is real, so it is interesting. It's a sort of mystery. It was a little slow for me...but I'm a little nuts. The ending definitely surprised me.
