I'm back!!

We had a great time in Austin. We took upside down pictures, because of course, I can't take a picture of one of them without taking one of the other!

He had an ongoing love affair with gum the whole weekend.

This is little guy. He was initially hiding behind this blanket from me, but he warmed up to me finally and my new name is "that." Yep, that's what he called me. I don't know...

We rode bikes, played Diego's 1-2-3 game, did puzzles, and read book after book. I love that they love to read books, but I was taken back to a story I remember hearing about as a child. My favorite book was Go Dogs, Go! by Dr. Seuss. I wanted it read so often that my GrandMargaret tried to skip pages, but I would have none of that. I was on to her!!

We also went to a Fourth of July picnic at my brother-in-law's boss's house. She had a great backyard and lots of yummy snacks. Especially good was the Sopapilla Cheesecake, which I will post the recipe to when I make it....
Little guy here wasn't too keen on being in the water, but he looked so cute in his life jacket. I told my sister he must really not be part of our family since he doesn't like his shoes to be taken off. WHAT!?
He walked around and around and around the pool throwing in anything that was close. He was being the pool patrol.

We also a few sparklers. A friend of my sister and brother-in-law's brought them over. She said, "I have sparklers!" My older nephew proceeded to get out some paper and was ready to draw! We had to explain and show him what they were.
I got some cool shots. This is my sister and my older nephew doing their thing!
