This weekend we got to visit the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science. It was huge, and had a lot of really neat interactive exhibits. The one downside was how crowded it was, but it's summer and it hasn't even been open a year yet. We will definitely go back sometime in the future, but maybe wait til the off-season. Yay, learning!!!

We found the biggest yellow jacket nest this afternoon, there were at least 20 crawling all over it. My dad told us that they can't fly in the dark so we got a can of spray and waited til nightfall. Once the sun set Trey bundled up and went after them. Luckily we made it out with no stings.

Most of our trip was spent in New York. We stayed with an old friend in Brooklyn and then in a hotel off Times Square for a few nights. We visited museums, and parks, and had lots of fun.


This summer over July 4th we took a vacation to NYC and Boston. We spent a few days with Trey's sister and family touring Boston. It was a very cool city, we can't wait to go back and visit again.

This weekend we drove down to Houston for Free Press Summer Fest. We went to the very first FPSF back in 2009 and haven't been able to go back until this year. Seeing The Postal Service was probably the best thing ever. Amazing weekend!

Today two of our best friends got married, and we were lucky enough to be a part of their big day. It was definitely the best wedding I've been to (besides our own, haha). After the wedding they moved to Colorado, and they are dearly missed. We love you, Cayla & Kaleo!!!

Well, I haven't done a very good job at keeping up with our blog. I will try to fill in some gaps and maybe even post a picture the day it was taken. I'll start here, day 945 (April 6, 2013).

We adopted a new family member today! Isis was a stray brought into Operation Kindness and we fell in love with her right away. She is just over a year old and is a mix of Bull Terrier and mini Pit Bull. The cats aren't too fond of her, but she likes them, haha.
