Aunt Kathy and Trista!

I made the kids stay home Wednesday and clean for company, which they thought was pure torture to spend a day of spring break cleaning! But Aunt Kathy and Trista came for a visit on Thursday, and we shopped till we dropped at Ikea and the Outlet Malls, then David grilled steak and veggies for us.

On Friday, Riley had gymnastics again in the morning, getting ready for the big meet next week. So we picked him up and headed to Phil's for lunch, it's our mission to take ALL our visitors there! They loved it (what's not to love?) and they had Amy's Ice Cream for the first time, again, another Austin institution. Then we went over to Hey, Cupcake and got some for later. Played around in the back with the sad tree. David smoked pork for pulled pork sandwiches, and pork ribs, and Daniel and Nikki and Hayden came over, we watched old home videos on DVD, and laughed at our impeccable fashion sense in the early 90's. Basically, the kids made fun of us for having curly perms or funky shirts. We looked like we borrowed shirts from the Fresh Prince. But it was good to see mom on the DVD's and have a good laugh at all of us. We stayed up till after 1am laughing and having a good time.

Then today, we had Round Rock donuts for breakfast (sugar overload weekend!) and they left a little while ago. I hate to see them go, but they'll be back in July for our annual river trip. Can't wait!
