Kiddo Help

Fear not! While we were in Austin my parents had the boys, much to their delight!  And while I was at class for the week, my sweet hubs had them all to himself!
We have some great people in our life!  Thanks to our friends the Irwins, Jason was able to attend the graduation ceremony!  Whoop Whoop!
FINALLY!  Mommy see's her babies!

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!

Weekend Highlights...

Fun at Hawaiian Falls.  Preston loved the slides and activity.  This little one wanted snacks and just the splash pad.
Little game of go fish.
Our side of soccer.... haha.... peanut gallery much?  I think there were nine parents standing with the coaches.... ha
And a crazy couple of random storms.....

Sleepover Friday

The boys asked if Liam (our neighbor) could sleepover Friday night, and of course, we were happy to have him for some fun boy time! 
The superheros were drawing maps to the treasure....
We then set up their sleeping arrangements...
Little movie and snack under the fort.
Of course, Preston never just goes with it.... he decided to come downstairs and have a snack there and hang with mom and dad for a little bit.
Finally, all three were getting ready for bed and so we turned on their night time stars
A view from the monitor...
Out like lights!  Sweet boys!  It was a fun night!
