More Lone Star Adventures

Our summer in Dallas has proven a blast, just as last year. Early on, for Memorial Weekend, we ran down to Austin for a couple days to visit my cuzzies Janet and Steve. We had fun, the kids had fun, and we had a life changing experience when we ate at Gourdoughs, the amazing donut place in Austin. I am confident I have never and will never taste a donut nearly as tasty as that Gourdoughs concoction. It was absolutely delicious and I can not wait to get down there next summer to have another one. I am so glad to have the Theriaults so close to is such a ball to hang out with them.

The other fun thing that happened down here was a visit from my brother and sister. Darrell and Mavis came to hang out for several days and it was super fun. We did a lot of chatting, eating, sightseeing, and picture-taking. I'm so happy they could come--thanks guys!

Other than that, we've been doing a lot of swimming in our apt pool, checking out the city, running around at the Galleria play place, going to the library, and playing with our buddies, the Despains. We've even had a trip to the Dallas Zoo! Even though we miss Durham, we've enjoyed every second of our stay in Texas.

I say all of us should post our Gourdoughs pictures on FB. That would be funny. Love you guys, wish we were closer.
