Has school really begun?

Good morning! Well, then Dunganlets had their usual fill of a busy weekend. It all began with a full and busy day of their second complete day of school. I am happy to say they have already started a trend of both perfect attendance and behavior. I have learned to celebrate these little feats when I can. After school we went over to DeeDee's to visit with some friends who were visiting from out of town. Gale, Tori, and Trey were all in from Birmingham. We had a nice relaxing evening around the house as the kiddos enjoyed themselves. Trey is just about to turn 2 years old so this was an interesting mix - especially for Ainsley. She has always been the baby and I think it was a bit difficult to soak all in. I don't think casual observers would have noticed her inner battle but I could see it plain as day. Although she did not like not being the baby one bit this exercise was good for her.

Saturday was a full day of squirt entertainment. It began with our usual breakfast at the Botanical Gardens.

As you can see from the picture we were not alone. However, you may also note that someone is missing from the picture. Yep, the Grahamster. The turtles did not keep his attention long and he was off scaling the rocks. Don't worry, we kept an eye on him.

Anyway, we had a great time running them through the Botanical Gardens. The kiddos had to show Trey all of their favorite spots. They were not pleased when us cranky adults started complaining about the heat and headed back to the car. That wasn't so bad, though. In the end that just meant that we were heading our way back to the pool and some cool refreshing swimming. The rest of the day would be nice and relaxing and was capped off with dinner at La Familia.

Sunday, of course, meant laundry and chores around the house. However, we were so efficient that it also meant some great fun washing the cars in the driveway and no less than 3 dips in the pool.

And some people think summer is over.

Well, it is back to purpose. I am off. Have a great day.

I am so jealous! We moved away from the Ft. Worth area 2 years ago and I miss La Famila so much!

Looks like you guys had a great weekend.

Hey, Summer is over up here in Seattle, WA. It's 55 degrees and raining. Our kids don't start school until next week, but the Autumn weather has arrived. Enjoy your sunshine, and blow some our way!
