open the floodgates…

here comes a blogging typhoon!

so i’ve been absent lately and with good reason, both of our computers died over the past few months so for the last month and half, we’ve been borrowing or without computers. thankfully, one computer is finally home, happy and ready to work which is a big relief. although i now have files randomly placed on at least four different computers, it’s going to be a while before i feel all together again.

while i’m putting the pieces back together i’ll be throwing them in here, although it may turn it into several posts scheduled to publish over the next few days.

i guess we’ll start with the fourth of july.

Reese was silly excited about the Forth.


Enjoying an umbrella and some awkwardness in line at Sno Beach


Preparation for Evan’s signature queso–nothing says “Peace out England” like melted cheese–just like Jefferson used to make


lounging pre-fireworks


We walked the dogs to the Fireworks show


They started the fireworks pretty early and shot them pretty low–it was pretty weird.



I thoroughly enjoyed getting to play with a tripod to take some fireworks pics.

It was a wonderful day and seriously, I love America. That Sunday at church they asked the veterans to stand so that we could thank them for their service, and out of no where tears started bubbling up in my eyes. I’m honored to live in this country and so very honored by the men and women who fight for our freedom.

I read some interesting things on freedom here thought you might like to take a look.

Stay tuned, they’ll be more pictures and some best of austin blogs coming up shortly.
