We've been Booed!

We were booed the other night. Someone from our neighborhood rang our door bell and then left this basket of goodies for us. There was a note explaining the booing process, and that it was now our turn to Boo someone else. So we did and it was fun! I love being a part of a fun, active neighborhood. It makes life just a little sweeter.

La Dolce Vita

Last night was a big date night for Josh and I. We went to the La Dolce Vita Food & Wine Festival. But that is not exactly the big part. We used a babysitter. Until last night, we have only had my mom, Josh's mom, or Josh's brother watch our babies. So last night was a big step for us. Our new babysitter is a high school student that is the daughter of one of Josh's friends. She lives around the corner from us and she was awesome. And now that we have a babysitter, we will get to have many more date nights. YEAH! The festival was lots of fun and we had yummy food and lots of good wine. Our friends Beau & Ashley gave us free tickets to the event which costs $120 a ticket (ouch). So not only did we have a great date, it was free! Beau got the tickets free because he works at the Ferrari dealership and they were one of the sponsors for the event.

The festival was at Laguna Gloria which was just beautiful. The were 100's of food & wine vendors there giving samples, including the best restaraunts in Austin. It was so nice to have a lovely evening out together. We will definitely do it again soon. Especially now that we have a babysitter. Yeah!

Jaden's 4th Birthday

Jaden was so cute when everyone sang Happy Birthday to him. He had the biggest smile and was blushing

Last weekend we celebrated Jaden's 4th birthday. I know every mom always says it, but I can not believe my baby is 4. He is such a sweetheart and just when I think it is impossible to love him anymore I do, every day. His party was a huge success. All of his favorite friends came, including his best friend Abby. We had the slip n slide, swimming pool, and a bounce house. We had pizza and cake and lots of fun. Thanks to all of you who came, especially the grandparents who drove in from out of town. Jaden felt loved and adored on his birthday!
