We may have passed the one year mark, but the fun isn't over!

On our way out of town we stopped for lunch and enjoyed some great fried fish.

Before we crossed back over into Texas we stopped at a casino. It was a fun way to break up the drive. 


Today is our one-year anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking out the window to this view is so relaxing. I think it was in the 60's this morning. Waking up without an alarm clock and sharing breakfast in the early sunshine on our patio was just amazing.

Today we went to a local winery and browsed around some of the local shops for most of the afternoon.

We ended the night by enjoying the cool breeze outside and grilling salmon & corn on the cob.


Our big plans for today included a canoe trip down Mount Fork River. 

It was a lot of fun and I can't believe we never tipped over.

Oddly enough we had some friends who happened to be vacationing in Broken Bow, so we met them for dinner tonight. Oklahoma Mexican food is nowhere near as good as Texas Mexican food, believe it or not. The giant blue giraffe was a nice touch though.


We both took a vacation day today and headed to Broken Bow, OK for our Anniversary Weekend.

Driving Dino accompanies us on all our road trips.


Here is our cabin, along with a hot tub. Nice.

We're kicking off anniversary weekend with fondue date night!


There was a food truck festival in Dallas this weekend and it sounded like fun, so we thought we'd check it out. The lines were ridiculous and it was super hot out so we ended up going to Genghis Grill across the street. Oh well. 


We went to go see Handsome Furs tonight. They always put on a good show. 


Trey's new laptop came in today. It's shiny. He's pretty excited. 


We do quesadillas right.

So we found the best Thai place in Dallas. It's called Best Thai.


Every weekend our local PetCo hosts "Kittenpalooza" where they have lots of kitties for adoption. We go every so often and we play with all the kittens. For the last 2 weeks they have had this adorable calico kitty who purrs when you look at her and she's the silkiest kitty ever. If we didn't already have 2 cats we would've brought her home today. Adopt!!! 


Our good friend Jesse just moved to Dallas, right down the street from us. We had a nice little house warming Mario Kart party at his new place.

Sushi night with friends!


Today the Angelika theater celebrated their anniversary by showing free movies all day with 5 cent popcorn and sodas. 


This summer has been ridiculously hot. I'm ready for fall.


I love the Dallas World Aquarium! 


My parents came to visit this weekend and today we went to the Fort Worth Stockyards. It was quite the cow-town, not that I expected anything different.


It's the little things that make me smile.

Steel-toed boot shopping! Later this week I'm going on a field trip with a group from work to tour a few of our DFW plants. I can't go without safety shoes!


We stopped by Souper Salad while running errands today. Nothing special, just a good lunch. It shut down permanently the following week. Oh well...


Happy 4th of July, everyone! I made this picture in MS Paint. I'm not sure why, just for funzies I guess.

For 4th of July weekend we went to Austin and went camping at Lake Travis with a bunch of our friends. It was hot out, but we had a lot of fun anyways. The park is always pretty, even in the middle of a drought. 


I wish every day was frozen yogurt day. Mmmmmm...


It's always fun when all the Conner kids + families are together.
