Hi, dear Internet peeps! I have one more picture post to catch you up on from last week in San Antonio with Pops and Meems, and I will have a slew of photos to share from this weekend, too. Brennan and I arrived at our getaway destination late this afternoon (Matt will join us later) and Brennan is loving it! We’re visiting Chris, Jill, Harrison and Haddie at Jill’s parents’ farm and it is quite evident that Brennan has missed his best buddies like mad! He is ecstatic to be here with them. I’ve never seen Brennan run around so hard and so strong, leaving him completely out of breath, trying to keep up with his buddies. He crashed tonight. And he will crash tomorrow night, Saturday night, and Sunday night after days of running, playing, swimming, cow and pony sighting, riding the tractor, and trying to muster up as much as he can to be as big of a boy as possible to keep up with H & H.
After he crashes, Jill and I have sweet plans to sit in the rocking chairs outside, enjoy a glass of wine, and talk about anything and everything until the stars grow big and bright under this vast Texas sky. Our men will probably get out the guns and practice target shooting. I’m not even sure I said that right: practice target shooting? We city folk don’t do that very often. Or they might go for a run. With Bob (a.k.a. “Muffin”—an inside nickname I have for him) and Jennifer, we’ll also probably get a good round or two in of Mexican train dominoes. Even Brennan’s first fireworks display might be in order; if he doesn’t crash before then.
So as I gaze upon the beautiful, open country this lovely evening, I leave you with this video that Brennan and I made yesterday. We stayed in most of the day so I could clean house (it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks and desperately needed to be done) and pack up for our weekend away. One of the more fun things we did though was make a video together to show you a few of the things he knows. I obviously was all mixed up as to what day it was. And the little boy simply gets amused by filming himself. Hope you enjoy and have a great Fourth of July weekend! Love to each of you.
