We have had a sweet start to summer. As much as I want to be in my new home now, I am trying to be patient and enjoy the rest of our time here.
Amelia's dolls are dressed in their new summer "frocks." ;o) She is content to play with her dolls for long stretches of time. When I listen in, I can be sure that I will hear that one of her "girls" is having a birthday and the rest are in the throes of party planning. It is precious. She is precious.
Jack is not getting near enough pool time to suit him. He is constantly asking me to take him to the pool. Getting him ready for the water is quite the ordeal, because he requires just about every flotation device known to man to keep him afloat and right-side-up. I was always against using any time of aid in the water, on the basis that I didn't want my children to have a crutch. However, Jack is so very fearless and so very non-buoyant that I deemed it a major safety hazard to let him go without. While he is in the water, I am usually able to sneak a couple "crutches" off and force him to work. He does well, and I have no doubts that he will grow into a great swimmer!
A few weeks ago, we ventured up to BGKY to visit The Clubb House ... Uncle Derrick, Aunt Kiki, and Baby Neely. Kiki and I made every effort to get some cute pictures for the grandparents ... and this is most of what we got.
Love this Bitty Girl!
If Neely could talk, she likely would have been saying, "Well, I never..."
I got a couple comments about where we were eating barbecue in Austin.
Yes! It was Salt Lick ... and wow! It was amazing! We will definitely be re-visiting this joint. I had never heard of it, but apparently I was the only one who hadn't, because on Saturday evening it was packed! So much so that the sheriff was there directing traffic into the gravel lot.
