A few weeks ago, my aunts from Alabama came to visit. It was their first visit to our house and the first time to meet Lil' D. They had spent Monday night in San Antonio staying with my cousin, Chris, so they arrived in Austin early Tuesday morning (right after we got home from Colorado). They enjoyed some baby time, and then we headed to lunch at Central Market. After lunch, we took a little stroll around the store (because it is a great place to stroll) and headed to the airport to drop off Aunt Judy. She spent a day and a half in Alberquerque with her oldest daughter for her 40th birthday.
Tuesday night, my cousin Chris brought his family over for dinner. Wednesday, Aunt Sharon enjoyed some solo baby time. We spent the morning at Natural Gardener and had lunch at Potbelly. We had a lovely dinner of Shrimp Cobb salad.
Nicholas went to his studio Thursday morning. Aunt Sharon and I headed to the airport to pick up Aunt Judy. Then we headed to Nicholas' studio. It started pouring down rain! We visited a few of Nicholas' East Austin haunts before heading home.
Then we took the Aunts to Chuy's for dinner. It was a nice night!
While Aunt Sharon was in town a couple of weeks ago, we visited Natural Gardener, Nicholas' favorite nursery in Austin. It is the place to go for native Texas plants. Sawyer enjoyed his first trip by napping the whole time!
Really big swiss chard!

One tall agave!
Afterwards we had lunch at Potbelly and admired this cutie!
I like to take pictures. I like to read. I like to write. I like to make people laugh, and I aspire to leave my mark by fully documenting my life through scrapbooks, photo albums, journals, emails, and now this blog.
