Here is what we've been up to in the past few weeks.
Our great friends, the Walker's came to Austin for a visit.  The boys did some hunting, the girls some shopping, we all hung out and ate lots of food!

Derek and I went out for my birthday since he was going to be gone on the actual day.  We had drinks at the Highball before dinner and then went to Uchi, our fave sushi spot.
My actual birthday started out great- phone calls, cards and lunch with friends.  Then the car battery died and Brooklyn and I were stranded for a bit.  Thankfully, I have friends who will rescue me and a moments notice! I ended the night with dinner with more friends and watching a movie at home. We ended up with a rent car for a few days.  Here is Brooklyn waiting outside the shop chilling to some music.
We attended the Austin City Limits music festival. Derek and I went on Friday and listened to some good tunes, ate some yummy local food, hung with Derek's co workers and had a great time.Saturday, we took the kids with us.  Brooklyn got her hair painted and was thrilled.  We danced to some music, went up the backstage balcony to see some bands, got snocones and some good food.  Barrett spent alot of his time watching the Texas game and was so excited about that!

Last first day of preschool

Brooklyn started her last year of preschool this week. She is really having a great time.  She's been waking up and ready to go before Barrett is even ready for school. She is going 3 days this year and seems to like the routine.
