A Day in the Life

The weather has been really nice this week (mid 80's and 60% humidity) so we enjoyed a lot of time outside.

We started the day off with a 4 mile hike at a local trail. People around here think I'm crazy for pushing my dog in a stroller. Let me explain: Maddie is a great walker, but she's very tiny and needs to rest her cute little puppy legs every now and then, so she sporadically rides in her pet stroller.  No big deal. Apparently it is in Texas.  To each his own.  All that pink and people still say what an adorable dog "he" is. And they question my sanity?!

We also saw a family of deer. So pretty!

After our hike we cooled off at the pool.

And I read my new book by Lisa Harper She is an amazing woman of God who spoke at Hume Lake conferences I attended with my mom. Love her!!!

Now Andrew is watching Chopped on the Food Network

and we're enjoying a delicious bowl of ice cream.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Happy Blog Day!

It never occurred to me to start a blog until last July when we moved across the country. It was an experience like no other... being uprooted from sunny San Diego and settling into scorching San Antonio in the middle of Summer.
{Did I mention it was hot?!}

All of a sudden we were 2 timezones and 1,500 miles away from home. Yikes! It's been a fun, challenging adjusment y'all! Alas months have gone by and phone calls, facebook, and skype are great but hopefully this little blog will be an easy way to stay connected with family and friends as we continue our adventures in Texas.
