Ginger in the Blue Bonnets

Here's our little ginger among the beauty of the Texas blue bonnets.  What a glorious sight!  Love my little mini-me so much.

A walk with my dog

There's no better therapy than taking a walk with my dog on a clear morning.  I think it makes her just as happy as it makes me, which brings me even more pleasure.  As she lays beside me while I type or follows me around the house (my shadow), she gives more love than I'm capable of giving.  If you ever had a pet you loved, you know this's a pretty wonderful gift.

My sister says good-bye to one of her old friends today and my heart is heavy for her.  I know the razor sharp pain of this loss all too well and I hate that her family is experiencing it now too.  The only thing that comforts me is the image of our dogs playing together across the Rainbow Bridge and then probably sitting beside our dad at the end of the day.

Mellow Johnny's

My favorite people in front of the coolest bike shop/coffee shop in Austin.

Bracelet Factory

A successful leader has mastered the art of empowerment, clearly, Siena has accomplished this by age 7.  Dad has been here for less than 48 hours and she already has him working in the bracelet factory while she enjoys a cinnamon roll and a movie.  Not too shabby, Little Girl.

Beautiful Faces

How wonderful to meet Walt Disney, Sacajawea, Martin Luther King, Daniel Boone, Betsy Ross, Amelia Earhart, Thomas Edison, Dr. Suess and many many more in one morning.  Aren't they inspiring?

Baby It's Cold Outside

Yes, those are icicles in Austin, Texas!  I think the truck was secretly smiling...she loves crappy weather.  Our daughter wanted to break them off and eat them...poor kid, the closest thing to winter she's seen in a long time.  

On another note, I have been working on my website (finally), I still need to upload images but please check it out and let me know your thoughts.  I am proud that I did this all without my IT guy but there are a few tweaks I still have to make and have yet to figure out.

Killer Balloon

We enjoyed a sneak peek into summer on Saturday and enjoyed some outdoor play.  Is this the coolest balloon you've ever seen or what?  I should have bought 2 of these because I wanted to play with it too!  FUN!
