So, we've been neglecting our blog lately. If it were a child, CPS would probably have been taken it away by now just like the FLDS polygamists in Eldorado. In an effort to make good, we've compiled a marathon post to document the most exciting things that have happened to us in the last few weeks. We'll take a straw poll later to see if it was a good idea or not.
1. 04/26: Anne's Birthday Party
We traveled to Canyon the weekend of Anne's 27th Birthday. We had a great time seeing the family, and Anne partied like it was 1999. Before the party, Anne took care of all the normal party preparations: compiling CD's for the listening pleasure of the guests and arranging the chairs in the most efficient way possible. Then she blew out her candles. Afterwards, we played guitar hero. We even got to see a dog, a cat, and a guinea fowl eating from the same pile of dog food. What a great birthday. Pictures below.
2. 04/29: A&M-TCU Baseball Game
We were able to attend the A&M-TCU baseball game in Ft Worth. It was a beautiful evening, and we were just glad to be part of the record-setting 4,294 fans (mostly Aggies) watch A&M win in the 9th inning 3-2.
3. 05/07: Jennifer has 2 bulged discs in her back
As some of you may know, Jennifer had back surgery in high school to correct the effects of a cheerleading accident. We had basically a "check-up MRI" because her back had been bothering her more than normal only to find out that she has 2 more bulged discs. The doctor immediately referred us to a neurosurgeon, which we want to avoid if at all possible. So we are going to see Sally and Bill (Scott's aunt and uncle) in Colorado over the Memorial Day weekend so they can work on Jennifer's back. They specialize in neuromuscular therapy. In the short term, this basically means that Jennifer needs to stop running and rely on swimming, biking, and walking for exercise.
4. 05/08: Water Main Burst
We were driving home to find the main road in our area basically flooding, but it wasn't raining. Apparently, a 16" water main burst, and being a good civil engineer, I grabbed my camera and took a couple of pictures to document our nation's aging infrastructure.
5. 05/10: Amber is engaged
We found out that Jennifer's sister Amber is getting hitched! We are not sure when the wedding is happening, but we are eager to meet Chris at our nephew's first birthday next weekend in Evadale.
