Happy Birthday! *Now with Pictures*

To Daddio! Today marks the beginning of the last year of Daddio's journey through his twenties... and what a day it was! Reaching temptures of 105 degrees, and wind that really felt more like a hot hair dryer... we ventured out of our cool cave after he opened gifts (a sweet new coffee maker that grinds the beans and has a timer, a golf flag for our flag pole, and a cool new golf shirt).

Activity 1: Driving range... first large bucket of golf balls went well, the second one was not so smart... sweat dripping in our eyeballs!

Activity 2: Movie -- Wall E... cute and funny, and not nearly as preachy as we thought it would be.

Activity 3: Central Market for some crazy awesome coffee beans (SnickerNut) for the above mentioned sweet new coffee machine. Oh, and for some amazing steaks for dinner! (And a lovely addition to the meal was Beer Bread.)

And then home again, home again... and out of the insane heat. After all the adventures of the day it has been a relatively quiet day.

Happy Birthday, Daddio! Welcome to the 29 and holding club. (I'm a spokesperson.) Looks like you had a great day!

Happy birthday!

Okay, hoping not to sound creepy here but: Central Market, 105F temperatures, Texas Homeschoolers...

Are you folks in the Austin area? We're up north of town in Round Rock, about ten minutes drive from Jennifer F. of Conversion Diary. If ya'll (sp? I'm only an import Texan) are local, we've got to get together some time!

Drop us an email...

Hey Darwin, we are not in the Austin area... close, sort of, in the DFW area :-).

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a really sweet birthday. Let us know how the coffee maker works out for you. We used to have an awesome coffeemaker, but we downgraded to a Mr. Coffee four cup machine for some reason.

Happy Birthday again! Good choice in sitting out the zoo...pretty sure you would have been soaked with sweat! Cant' wait to smell the coffee from the new pot...maybe I will even try some ;)

Ah, so close and yet so far!
