If You Can't Beat the Heat...

...Embrace it!
We're spending an increasing number of afternoons in our backyard with the little pool and a big sprinkler ball. We all love it!

In other news...
We had a great trip to Utah, we just didn't take many pictures! Here's one with all but two of the Grandkids on Brad's side.

Goin' Back to Utah

We leave tomorrow for a little trip to Utah. I can't believe it's been just shy of a year since we've been there! In many ways it seems like yesterday that we packed up our huge U-Haul Truck, towing our car (which ended up costing us about five hundred extra dollars at the end of the road because we tried to back the car off the trailer without fully unhitching it, thus bending the frame underneath) and stayed that first memorable night on the road in Monticello, UT.

We spent six interesting and HOT months in Houston, and have finally found a home and ward and community that we love here in San Antonio.

But we're excited to go back to see family; to make fun of the FOX13 news team; back to CougarTown; and most importantly, to see the MOUNTAINS! (Seriously, Texas, you think you have hills here, but you have no idea!)

Apparently it snowed again today, so hopefully we'll get to feel cold again (we haven't had cold weather since January...and let's be honest: it really wasn't even that cold)!

Hopefully I'll come back with some good blogging material. I've been brain dead the last couple of weeks when it comes to blogging!

Final Four

On Friday Brad took part of the day off so we could enjoy some of the Final Four festivities downtown. First we went to the Alamodome and watched the shoot-arounds for Memphis and North Carolina. Since the actual tickets to a game were way too expensive, we were excited that these practices were free.

While there, they annonced a seat in the audience that had won tickets to the championship game. We looked on the screen, and there we were on the jumbo-tron. They announced seat 18, and that was Brad's seat! We were screaming and yelling, Brad saying, "We won! We won!" Until the official-looking guy with the Final Four badge looked a little sad for us as he gave the free tickets to the lady one row up! Ughhh...we really thought for a few seconds that we were so lucky! Oh well. Who needs tickets to a stupid championship game when we can watch it for family night on our awesome 19 inch TV?!? We had a lot of other fun:

Ty was a happy boy, even though it wasn't the most exciting basketball action. Spencer and Sara and their clan joined us for the All Star game, which turned out to be the Not-So-Allstar game. We decided to leave at half-time to check out the "Block Party", or street festival they had going on.

Best Buds

Spencer rockin' out on the Karaoke machine. Watch out David Archuleta!

When we were a bit tired, we just sat for a good 20 minutes and let the kids chase the pigeons. Ty really thought he'd be able to catch one!

Enjoying the beautiful day on a bridge over the Riverwalk.
