The new fence is in!!!
We are enjoying our new backyard. BBQ just tastes better when you have a yard to do it in. Throwing the football feels better. The dog running around just looks better.
Check out the pictures of the fence here.

Some of you know that we had a very special event at our home a few weeks ago. I haven't made a post about it until now because it has been so hard to find time to sit and organize some pictures and a blog post!
A few weeks ago, an awesome thing happened. First, Vince, Amy, Ethan and Kyle were planning on making a trip to Houston to spend some time before school started. We were thrilled. I couldn't wait to show them the sights at Johnson Space Center. Neo kept counting down the days until Ethan would be here. Christian had meal plans made and our calendar set up with events.
And then, it got better. My nanny (godmother for most people) Michelle might be available to come and meet us in Houston! Wow. Everyone loves spending time with Michelle and Denise! Now we were really pumped.
Then it got even better. Michelle sent me a text message to let me know that Boo and Beth and their two boys were going to drive in from Baton Rouge to meet up with us as well! I can't tell you how excited we were.
And everyone made it into town, and the whole weekend was a blast. The kids played, we barbecued, we laughed... we all went down to Johnson Space Center and took tours. We also all went to Kemah to play and eat at the Aquarium restaurant.
We also had a small birthday celebration for Ethan.
What a great weekend. It was so much fun, that I'm gonna suggest we make it a standing event. I can't wait to get everyone together again.
Charlie still asks almost every day for "Michelle" and "Denise" (with that cute "s" sound of denise with his tongue between his teeth).
All of the pictures from the "Persi-nino" weekend are here.

Just got through BBQ'ing with some neighbors over at our place. Made some stuffed jalapenos that were fresh from my earthbox (they had cream cheese, cheddar, and bacon). Also had some grilled bacon-avocado bites. Grilled garlic shrimp. Some chicken legs. Hot dogs. Sausage. Grilled pineapple. Salad. Beans. Yum.
