family weekend

Our weekend consisted of spending time together as a family, the best kind of weekend for me!

Actually, our weekend kicked off with a date night for Aron and I provided by Erin and Christian. We tried Uncle Julio's mexican restaurant and didn't think it was amazing (though the homemade guac was pretty good!); there are better places around here. But, the company was excellent, we loved catching up and just being "us" sans kids. We stopped at the quirky Obzeet for tres leches cake and coffee before picking up our kiddos.

Last night, we enjoyed a party in our building. The school brought in a bounce house and provided pizza and drinks and we mingled and met new friends. One family who lives on the 5th floor is from northern California and has a girl Maggie's age and a boy Curren's age. How fortuitous! They seem like a great family and I think we will all be fast friends.

Today, we went to the splash park and soaked up all the water time we could. Kate is getting more and more adventurous, walking all over and under and through any wet spout. A water baby for sure. After a pancake dinner, we played in the courtyard for a bit.

Looking forward to a full week next week of time with friends, pool fun, a visit to the Arboretum, and a possible trip to Tyler to see my friend Bethany, who used to be my hall mate when we first lived in Swiss Tower 2 years ago. Aron is traveling Wednesday through Friday, so I'm trying to stay busy.
