Busy July! Let’s Play Catch-up…

We’ve had a fun and busy July.  So I’ll follow my sister’s lead and do one big wrap-up of the month so I can get caught up!  :)First July 4th Holiday!    Our very good friends George & Mariana came to visit us for the July 4th weekend.  They hadn’t yet met Reid so it was extra special for us to introduce them.IMG_6909 IMG_6906 We hung out at home, went to The Salt Lick, drove out to Lake LBJ dreaming of our someday-lakehouse and watched the fireworks in Georgetown.  It was Mariana’s first July' 4th, too!IMG_6923

Weekend in Dallas Preparing for Newbaby Flores.    Reid and I drove up with Kellie & Ethan to spend the weekend with my family for my sister’s baby shower.  It was a lot of fun to honor Stephanie as she waits for Carly to arrive.  I didn’t snap many photos this weekend so check out Stephanie’s blog for more.IMG_7013 IMG_7018 IMG_7019  IMG_7022

Fun with the Martinis   We’ve been lucky to spend a lot of time with the Martini family this summer!  Here are some pics from a few different visits…IMG_6965IMG_6901 IMG_6903 IMG_6899IMG_6969

Sarah & Rodney Visit Austin   We had a nice couple days with Sarah & Rodney during their vacation in Austin.  Reid got to show off his “cube” that the Beckel girls got for him.

The Frenchies Visit Austin   And last but certainly not least, we had a fantastic weekend with my best friend Elizabeth (or “Booty” as she is known around our house), her husband Patrick and their two-year-old son, Benjamin (or “Mr. B”).

It was wonderful to have my best friend here and to have them get to know our little Reid.  We went to the Austin Children’s Museum, ate some Tex-Mex, had a crepe breakfast and dinner courtesy of Patrick, and most importantly, we spent time together with our two little boys!

Somehow, we don’t have ANY pictures of Booty and me together.  How did that happen?!  Luckily, Beverly came over and took some family portraits of the Frenchies, and some of us girls, too.  We can’t wait to see how they turned out!Our boys!
