Yes, We'll Gather at the River!

It's true. We know how to live well...on a shoestring budget! :-) Last weekend, we went on a mini-holiday to visit our friends Julie and Will at their place in New Braunfels. We had an AMAZING time. They live right on the guadalupe river. The boys loved playing in the water and we all enjoyed our time with friends. It was great.


This is their outdoor fireplace.
They have a sliding glass door that separates the outdoor-screened in porch from the inside of the house.

Part of our fun weekend included a party to celebrate Julie and Will's wedding at the end of last year. We had a Couples' Shower at Whitewater Amphitheater. We enjoyed food by Wahoo's Fish Tacos (formerly one of our favorite LA hotspots), music by Seth Walker (very smooth style- check him out) and a fabulous atmosphere. After the party, Seth Walker opened for Jerry Jeff Walker. It was a super fun night! Thanks to Julie and Will!


Here's Bakri and another view of the porch.

Me, Miss Trinity, Julie and her baby bump!

Me and Miss T on the porch.

Trinity on the porch. Can you see her two bottom teeth?

Trinity, having a great time with Julie.



Julie with her Aunt, her momma and my momma. What a great looking group!
Moustapha and the boys had such a good time playing in the tubes in the river. The river and lakes are really low this year. So, that made for a less rowdy crowd on Saturday. That was good for us, but not so good for business. Hopefully we'll get some rain soon.

Sweet Angela and Trinity. Angela has a baby daughter that is one month younger than Miss T. I think she was missing Meri that night!

Here is a view from Julie and Will's porch. I'm not sure how they felt about a family of five moving in for the weekend. But, we had the best time and can't wait to go back!

So much fun! I am glad that Jules has found a man to make her so very happy ... you can just see it in her eyes!
