Happy Mother's Day to ME !

I am beyond blessed to have been chosen to be their Mama ♥♥

Book Lovers

The library brings back so many memories for me and continues to be a special place.  We are so blessed to have MANY libraries in Austin and they are all special to me.  The library was a "safe place" to go when my babies were little.  They could explore in the kids areas, we could read together, attend storytimes and plays, and choose piles and piles of books to borrow.  Those borrowed books then continued the memories made by allowing G&G and I time together at bedtime to read and read and read.  We discovered our favorite books together (GFC loves The Berenstain Bears, GMAC loves Lego books and Non-Fiction books about EVERYTHING).  We learned together. When we read, we were close together.  It is my favorite time of every day.

Camp Ben McCullough

There is this little place called Camp Ben just West of Austin.  It is the home of the Old Settler's Music Festival, an annual Confederate Reunion, and an always perfect little part of Onion Creek for us to swim throughout the summer.   Camp Ben McCullough is right across from the infamous Salt Lick Bar-B-Que but still this little place is a relative secret ... shhhh ;)
