Last week, we went to Austin.  It was an unplanned, last minute trip, we flew into Dallas and drove three hours to Austin.  Dave’s uncle has been in the ICU for three weeks.  We are so incredibly thankful that it did not end with the outcome we were all expecting.  The doctor used the word remarkable, how often does that happen?  I am not going to share much more than that because it isn’t my story to tell, but the magnitude of this gift is infinite.  We would love it if you could send a good thought for his continued improvement.

In between hospital visits, the kids wanted nothing more than to be outside soaking up every bit of the warm weather.  We even saw swim practice being held outside.  In March!

We stayed in Dallas the night before we left.  The DFW Marriott front desk staff were sweet enough to give us a room with a view of the airplanes landing.  Finn was thrilled and I think Dave was too.

I even got to sneak a visit in with Jess, who has been my blog friend for years and years now.  Love her.  She is every bit as incredible {and gracious about my crazy family} as I expected she would be.  It took us years to meet in person and now I get to see her again next week for Blissdom!

I'm so glad your trip was a good one. I hope Dave's uncle continues to be remarkable!

Sounds like a good trip! We live in San Antonio - and have only made it up to Austin a couple of times with our kids. Since we're moving to LA soon...your most made me realize I've got to get up there one more time before we leave. Hope your uncle's health continues to improve!

We were just in Austin three weeks ago - and we went to Hey Cupcake, too! We went to a Longhorns baseball game and it was so nice to attend spring baseball in nothing but a shirt and sweatshirt. So unlike the winter coats and blankets I bundle up in here!

and positive thoughts going out to Dave's uncle!

So glad things are ok! Austin seems like a really cool city to visit. As a fellow Ohioan I have to say the spring-like weather puts a huge smile on my face!!

Whatever I LOVED it. I only wish my family could've come along too! I can't wait for next weekend!!!
