Graham-A-Lamma Bday

So Graham's 4th birthday is this coming Wednesday and we have been asking him what kind of party he wanted.  He said on repeat that he just wanted a family party and for Liam to sleep over.  So.... that's what we did. Just small family party for my sweet boy!  He also said he wanted a rainbow cake with pink frosting.... so..... there ya have it!
Preston and I got to work....
I baked and he tasted!
Turned out well
Swimming fun for my bday boy! (he was watering the plants with a water gun)
A little trampoline time in his undies, because, why not!?
Burgers and then cake!
And some presents of course! (still in our undies)
Preston wanted to be sure little bro could handle the deal, so he took a seat next to him and "helped".
Playtime followed by a movie..
Then some non-sleep sleepover time!  Overall it was perfect for him!  Not a lot of fuss and people.... just quiet and filled with love!

CPC - Cohort Week!

I returned from Austin and same day, repacked and checked into TCU for my Certified Public Communicator course!  Staying in the dorms again as an adult is... interesting.... luckily I had great suitemates and it was only 102 degrees outside!
I became a Mentor to a gal in the new cohort!  Welcome Chelsey!
Getting ready to graduate with some peeps!
Vicky and I thought there was something disturbing about this portrait in the building we were in all week!
So did our suitemates!
Here we are happy!  YAY! Graduation night!
Getting my certificate!

Jester King Brewery!

For the past several years, Jason and our neighbor Jeremy have become "beer bros".  They enjoy sour beers and trying different kinds.  Jester King Brewery is a brewery out of Austin (actually Dripping Springs, TX) that has the top rated beer in Texas (several years running).  They only release their Atrial, which is a raspberry sour beer, once a year and only have so many for the public.  So we got word the release was two days away and we jumped into action.  The boys have been talking about it forever and the stars aligned enough to make it happen!  So, Jason and Betsy jumped in the car Friday morning and were in line in Austin midday (mind you, only three bottles per person per day).  Jeremy and I had to work, so we promptly left at 5pm to make our way and meet our spouses! 
Jeremy and I hitting the road!

Jason and Betsy staged and ready!
AHHH! He got it while standing in line! mMMMMMm
Finally, team together!
The next morning the boys got the brewery at 6am! 
We rolled in later!
This chick cried and had a major tantrum ALL DAY about not getting one of the few "magnum" bottles they had
Waiting and chillin!
Of course you taste with a PJ Masks cup!
After we loaded up with our 3 bottles a piece, we headed downtown
Esther's Follies, Pete's Piano Bar, Coyote Ugly (no comment MELISSA!!!)
And believe it or not, we stepped foot into a night club.... so please, imagine my hubby and I in this place!  Needless to say, we were there not even long enough for a drink.
End of the night.... picture with Mr. Driskill (we stayed at the Driskill Hotel in Austin)
It was an amazing, super fun, crazy as hell weekend!  But we loved every second!

Roasting Marshmellows

Preston came home from school the other day and drew this picture.  It was him camping and he said he wanted to roast marshmallows..... lucky for us, we were going to the Horst Resort on Saturday and could do just that!
I'm impressed!
