Busy, busy weekend

What a fun weekend! We had some of Joe’s previous employees/GAs from a few years back at the University over for lunch Saturday before the master’s graduation of Swathi, the wife of one of his previous GAs-Shreekumar. We had a great time together. As you can imagine, Ashley was all sorts of helpful to little Ethan, who just turned 1 several weeks back.

Our dear friend Andra (left) also graduated with her Master’s on Saturday. So, we got to celebrate her accomplishment with her and her family. Pictured with her is her dad and her twin sister Kara.

Later on Saturday evening, Jacob and I attended a 70’s theme party at our dear friend Connie’s new house. The house came with complimentary 70’s decor. This picture is taken in the entryway, which has the coolest velvet wallpaper. Connie has assured us that this wallpaper will remain in place. Envious of my dress? I was so thrilled to find it at a local second hand store. It was home-made and fit as if it were made for me…which was pretty handy since I did not shop for it until Saturday morning.

It is officially getting warmer here in Texas. To those Western Washington friends, you’d likely already consider it hot. We’ve been averaging in the mid to upper eighties during the day with lows in the mid-sixties. Sunday we deemed it time to get out the sprinkler to play in after we went blackberry picking. Yes, that’s right, our blackberries are already ready. We have been enjoying some blackberry crisp, or “blackberry crisp pie” or “crispy treats” as Ashley keeps calling it.
