Family Photos

Since our walls have been pretty barren since we moved in we decided to have our own little family photo shoot to help remedy the situation. Dan was the photographer for these pictures. We found a lovely patch of wildflowers just down the street and had our own little family photo shoot. These are some of the highlights.

Texas in the springtime is beautiful!


So this year Dan and I made our first attempt at a garden. I know it's nothing like my mom's garden but we are pretty pleased with ourselves. We planted tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and squash. These are the before pictures...

And in just a few short weeks these are the after pictures...

We think it's pretty good for our first try.


Even though Texas is famous for its longhorns since we have moved here Dan and I have seen very little of them. We thought this was a little strange. But luckily the other day we saw plenty of them. I let Max out in the morning to do his usual business when he just started going nuts. Barking constantly and really loud. Normally Max never barks so I knew something was up. So I walk out our back door and I see the huge shapes behind our fence. I now understand why Max was so concerned. So Dan grabbed the camera and hopped up on our fence. These are what we found. Who knew we had Texas longhorns living in our back yard!
