Practice Makes Perfect

If you don't already know, we are headed on a month-long road trip with Norman. We have been saving our pennies and dimes.

Alright, and our hundies.

We've been provisioning for weeks.



We've even had practice packing days.

(We also had tent practice, but it was about a million hots that day even though we got up at the crack of dawn to take advantage of the coolest part of the day. Therefore, I did not take pictures.)

By the time you read this, we will be making our way across the country with the cats and we will have lots and lots to share!  Get excited!

The Last July 4th Parade

One of the things we will really miss about our neighborhood is the July 4th parade.  This year, our neighbors came and we all watched the parade together.


There is always some pretty awesome stuff in the parade, but for the twins, the best parade stuff was Norman.



In addition to Norman, there was something there for everyone.




Some of our favorite art cars were there too. Shattered vanity:


And of course, our beloved Catillac.


This last one is not an art car, but if you ever need a taxi in Houston, may we recommend...

Farewell, Schlitterbahn, My Love

There was no way we could leave Texas without taking one last pilgrimage to Schlitterbahn! We each had one last chance to do our very favorite things. I floated listlessly around the lazy river.

Eddy charged manfully across this suspended rope thingy (which may or may not be for babies).

Aaand, let's face it. We probably needed at least one more trip to Buc-ee's.

Sometime when we are hanging out having beers, ask Eddy about these hats. He has a strange fascination with them.

Adieu, Dream House Sunshine Fuzzy Bunny

In addition to selling things from our garage, we also sold our first house.  It was bittersweet because if we could pick up this house and move it across the country to Santa Cruz, we would do it in a heartbeat.


We absolutely could not have asked for a better first house.

First house, first love *tears up.*
