Another weekend...another pocket full of memories.
Friday afternoon started with a little (okay, a lot) of this...
After a full fledged "big kid" night, we kept it low key Saturday with a family foursome dinner on the lake. We headed to The Oasis on Lake Travis. Please click on their link right now.
Okay, you see the picture on their homepage? Well, folks, that was taken by an old and dear friend of mine, Jared Tennant. He is a self taught, crazy talented photographer here in Austin and out of hundreds of entries, his photo was chosen by the Oasis for their advertising campaign. I am so proud of him and felt like he deserved a little shout out. Check out his site. You'll be blown away.
Anyway, the Oasis is not necessarily known for their menu (even though the food is ah-mazing), but more for the views and atmosphere (duh). It's not just a tourist attraction, but a place that draws in the locals alike. As soon as the sun sets behind the water, the restaurant rings a bell and everyone claps, cheers and whistles. It's one of the coolest experiences to witness and be part of. If you ever come to Austin, make sure to let me know and I will personally drive you there. If there is one place to see, this one is it.
In the top right picture, waaaaaay in the back, you can see some buildings. Uh yeah, those aren't actually buildings. They are houses. Yes, people live there; like have beds and sleep there. I mean, can you even imagine waking up to this view every single day of your life? Ho-hum.
And then there was Sunday. We all know that this was no ordinary Sunday Funday. It was GREEN beer Sunday Funday. Of course we first went to give thanks and praise to Jesus for creating this magical day (and all the days before and after), but I will say that we didn't waste any time heading straight for the tinted brew as soon as church was over. I am proud (er, not so proud) that we were the first patrons at the Junior's Icehouse door step. I don't know why, but when a beer is green, it tastes so much better. Am I weird or am I weird? Regardless, I hope you treated yourself to a green beverage this St. Patty's Day weekend; whether it was a Miller Lite or a McDonald's Shamrock Shake.
The in betweens of the weekend entailed a couple of naps, two birthday parties, Sonic tater tots, Ross's basketball games and lots and lots of laundry, but I didn't think you guys cared to see pictures of that.
So what did you take umpteen pictures of this weekend?
P.S. We ALLLLLLLLLLL know Google Reader is getting the boot come July. It seems most people are choosing the Bloglovin' route. Whatever path you choose, there are lots of ways to find my little piece of the interwebs. I hope you pick one of them so we can keep hanging out on the daily, weekly or monthly or whatever you can handle.
