It was a whirlwind of a weekend. We took Friday off and headed to Houston. The kids enjoyed a weekend at home with Grandma and Aunt Amber, and we enjoyed a couple days in Texas. Flying without kids seems so strange to me now. I rested my eyes, I finished a book.
I had never been to Houston before, and I can't really say that I saw much of it. We enjoyed an awesome tex-mex dinner with my brother and his family. It had been about 9 years since I saw my nephews - they were toddlers when I last saw them, and they're teenagers now. It was so much fun getting to know them just a little bit. They're such a beautiful family.
On Saturday, Kevin and I attended the coolest. wedding. ever. The wedding took place in the couple's backyard. It was a beautiful ceremony, led by one of the groom's best friends and officiated by the bride's brother. Afterwards, the chairs were brought to the front yard, where the first of three food trucks arrived. After lunch, the first of three bands started to play. The festivities went on all day, in typical music festival fashion. There was good food, good beer, sunshine, kids running around everywhere, and excellent music.
Then back home on Sunday to get hugs from my boys. Whew!
