Pardon me, may I borrow your binoculars?

Life is starting to slow down! Phew. We have had some fun adventures, but I'm glad for my normal routine to be back & for us to have some chill time.

On Good Friday Josh & I had our second annual Riverwalk day! We started out with breakfast (at 11:30) at the Guenther House; it was built in the late 1800's by the founders of the Pioneer Flour Mills, & is part museum, part restaurant. It has yummy breakfast, AND gives you fluffy biscuits & blueberry muffins before your meal! That alone won me over. Everyone should go.

We walked around the Riverwalk & checked out every menu to decide where we wanted to eat dinner, & picked a Mexican food restaurant - & afterwards, bought some chewy Rolaids & vowed never again to eat Mexican food (& inevitably found ourselves at a Mexican food restaurant the next evening with my dad - but I had the comparably healthy fajitas so my tummy didn't revolt), ate a caramel apple, then went to see Phantom of the Opera! So good. I love going to the theater. As with all events we attend, we bought the cheapest tickets available - & ended up sitting against the back wall! This is the second time that has happened to us (first time was at the rodeo) & Josh actually said, yes he REALLY said, "Next time, buy the second-cheapest tickets." It was a really good show & I recommend it.

Back to chewy Rolaids, Josh & I really like them. The cherry kind, not the vanilla kind. They are like candy, with a bad aftertaste (but if you keep eating them you won't experience the aftertaste! Just kidding, don't do that.)

Saturday we went to Austin to go out on the boat so Josh could learn how to drive it properly. The weather was really nice, altho when we stopped moving I had to take my jacket off because the sun was so warm, but when we got going the wind made it so cold I had to put the jacket back on & still had goosebumps. I'm looking forward to relaxing summer days, floating in the lake.

So after those events & Disney World, we are finally back to normality. Cleaning, laundry, work, cooking dinner, etc.

This weekend we are headed to College Station for the last time in who knows how long. Most of our friends graduate in May or August, so there will be little reason to visit after this time, so I don't know when we will be back. Sad. That being said, I will have about 6 java shakes. Maybe that's an exaggeration. But at LEAST two.

I'm off to clean out the kitty litter box! Whoo ya.

Phantom of the Opera is one of my favorite musicals - I'm glad you loved it!
