Chalk Walk--Round Rock

Rachel (Jonathon's sister) had a big part in the annual chalk walk downtown Round Rock this year. We have never gone before but wanted to go and support Rachel so we went this year. I'm so glad we did. It turned out to be a cool event. We all had a great time.

My lastest obsession

So I've been slightly obessed about snow cones lately. I love them. I can't get enough. And the ones I like are not just ice and flavoring, oh no, there is an added element that I think make them 1000% better. Wanna know what it is? cream!! Holy cow, it is so tasty! We normally go to a place downtown Round Rock called "Hawiian Ice" but I found this other cute little place called "Rockabilly's". He has taken some cool old cars and put a table in the middle so that people can sit in the cars and eat their snow cones. brilliant. I brought my camera along to get some fun pictures. However...about 1 minute after we got out snow cones and I started taking pictures there was a RAIN STORM completely out of the blue. It was a true and honest down pour. We were taking cover under a medal roof. Maddie and I were enjoying the rain but Lyndon was FREAKED out due to the noise when as the rain hit the roof. I ran to bring the car closer and we ended up eating in the car.

Our little cuties

There was really no reason I took these pictures. We were outside and I had my camera handy so here they are...

Fun in the Sun

At least a couple times each week was spent at the pool this summer. We would pack up a bunch of snacks and have our friends meet up with us. It was so fun. (Besides the crazy heat!) The kids would play and play and we would talk and talk. Once school started because it was still too hot to do anything else, we would still go to the pool. But this time it was just the boys (and baby Stella). All of the girls started kindergarten this year so while they were at school, we played at the pool. It was funny because the first couple of times we were there without the girls the boys, all separately, asked where Maddie, Gwen and Lucy were! But lucky for us, they boys played so well together.

A few weeks ago, Dana, Lonna and I went and got pedicures. Looking at my toenails now I'm thinking it's time for another Girls night. :)
