Phil and I just got back from Texas. We headed down for a visit at the end of July. As soon as we landed in DFW, we were whisked away to Schlitterbaun, an enormous, awesome waterpark an hour south of Austin. We spent two days at the waterpark with the entire crew: our parents, our little siblings (Lillian and Lucy-13, Will-10), our brother (Grant), our sister-in-law (Rachel), and our nephew (Benjamin-1). It was a blast.
After the waterpark, we headed back to Dallas where some extended family came down to celebrate Benjamin’s first birthday! We also surprised Phil by celebrating his birthday as well!
Phil headed back to Minneapolis for the work week while I stayed in Texas to spend extra time with the baby (and the rest of the family too). But Phil was back on Friday to help me road trip our new truck back to Minneapolis! Thanks for the truck Mom and Dad! Meet Brunner, my first car and now Phil’s new car:
Now, we’re both back in Minneapolis. Classes start in about a week, Laura
comes home on Friday, and Maureen
‘s wedding is Saturday! In between all that, I’m busy applying for jobs in Dallas for next summer, starting research for my law review long paper, and trying to finish up the last few house projects.
