Baseball Camp

 Round Rock Express baseball camp is one of JD's favorite summer activities.  It was a beautiful but HOT week of baseball.
Lunch at the Salt Lick on the final day of camp may be his favorite part of the week.

Catching Up

I have been so lazy with my blog let me catch up on a few things.
 JD and his boy scout friends have been SO HELPFUL in my friend Pat's effort to collect and distribute bras to needy women.  they were silly at first but then got right down to business.
JD found some of the biggest bras I have EVER SEEN!
 These fine young men graduated from elementary school!
 I'm just not ready to say goodbye to some of my favorite elementary school teacher friends.  I'm going to miss them!

Thunderbird District Adventure Weekend

 Our Boy Scouts participated in District Adventure Weekend.  It was a beautiful weekend with just a few passing showers.

 We had a great group of boys camping with us.
 I'm especially fond of these two.  Only one of them belongs to me officially - but you have to love those smiles.
 George and I set up the troop kitchen and cooked some great looking Fajitas for the adults.

Austin Aquarium

 The Austin Aquarium was one of our spring break adventures.
 JD got to feed the sting rays and . . .
hold a snake.

Spring Break Visitors

The great thing about living in a place like Austin is that the party comes to you.  We enjoyed all our spring break visitors.
 Uncle Keith came to watch a baseball game and break some geodes.
 We were very happy to see all the Ridings.  They all enjoyed their UT t-shirts.
 If there are blue bonnets you have to take a picture with them.
 Love all that red hair.
 JD was happy to see that Jack had grown up and could play video games now!
We also got to visit with an old (or YOUNG) college friend Lorrie.  THANKS to everyone who came to visit.

Eating on the Run

We've had a lot of food on the run recently.  Here we are at Mighty Fine eating in baseball clothes on the way home from practice
 JD is on the Cubs team this year so I have been working on a new banner.  Opening day is Saturday so we are almost ready to go.
 Another burger on the way to Boy Scouts.  I promise we eat food other than hamburgers - BUT - that seems to be our meal on the run choice.
 JD helped me vote.  Our candidate didn't win - but we are used to that.  Apparently my vote isn't very lucky - or maybe its just that I'm willing to vote for a candidate that doesn't have a chance to win.
