We traveled south east to the humid metropolis of Houston last weekend to see some friends and stop by Grandma's. Friday evening was spent playing PS3 with Phil until far too late, or early if you look at it from the other side of the clock. Killing baddies co-op is so much fun especially with beer and a good friend.
JBL slept in his tent for the first time. I didn't think it was gonna work out because I basically had to push him in and zip it up before he could scramble out, but after just a few seconds of crying after we shut the door and he settled down and fell asleep posthaste.
Saturday the guys kept the kiddo whilst the girls went to the farmer's market for fixins for pairings with the wine that evening at the Wine Shop @Home tasting that Phil and Heather we hosting. Goatcheese covered bread, stuffed mushrooms, tomato basil salad, cheese fondue, and pecan shortbread cookies came out of the kitchen to pair with all sorts of wines. Yummy and fun.
Sunday we got some kolaches for breakfast and headed up to Katy to see the LeBlond's there including my Memere. None of them had seen JBL since he was itty bitty so they were delighted to see him. He was a little tired and had just gotten up, so it took him a while to come out of his shell. He really took to Jacob immediately and had a blast playing will all of my little cousins. I'm really glad we got to see Memere before she headed north to Rhode Island the next day. There is a chance the rest of the gang might come up for a visit during the birthday party if things work out. We would love to have them come up to see Austin and to enjoy the party.
