tomorrow is a new day

Category: everyday | April 1st, 2013

i am excited for this week. i’m ready for a new week. this past weekend was actually really great. lots of family time and of course celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord…but other than that last week was a rough one. just lots of little things going on that all built up and our whole house was a hot mess. from two year molars coming in to our washing machine not working to all of us getting sick at one point and of course not enough sleep. i’m pretty sure i asked for patience about 20 times a day. you get the idea. so yes…tomorrow is a new day. my sister told me that the other day after i vented to her via text. (you’re the best sis!) it’s so true though. and i was/am grateful. so if you’re every having a super crappy day and things just aren’t going well for you just remember…tomorrow is a new day…and God loves you! ;)

here’s to a new week! and hello april!

zilker kite festival

Category: everyday | March 8th, 2013

this past sunday we made it out to the 85th annual zilker kite festival here in austin. yes…85 years! it’s the nation’s oldest kite festival, and it’s still going strong. for the 10 years that i have lived here in austin i have not been to the festival once. i thought that was pretty sad so i decided to do something about it this year. so after church we ate lunch, packed up our goodies and made our way down to the park with some friends and the other 20,000+ people who went.

we had to walk a bit to get there and penelope was having a blast people watching (more like dog watching) on the way. when we got there it was such an awesome view. there were sooo many kites. i don’t think penelope had seen a kite that up close before let alone that many! her head was up in the sky most of the time. you also had to be on the lookout for kites flying at your head. there were a couple of close calls! we had a cinderella and a spiderman kite. she couldn’t decide so we brought both. i love how she’s so girly and a tomboy at the time. :)
the mister flew the kite while i kept miss ruby out of the wind. she wasn’t a big fan. lol. i forgot to bring a hat for her so she wore one of penelope’s…in other words she couldn’t see half of the time. ;) we all had a fun time. it was such a beautiful day. sunny, in the 70s, and windy! i am so glad i can finally say i have been to the kite festival! everyone should go at least once!
