Texas Day #3 (Monday)
After visiting there for a little while, we headed to the airport. We dropped Nessa off first, because her flight left an hour earlier than mine, then we headed to my terminal. We had plenty of time, so Mom and I hung out for a little bit. I then headed through security (without incident, thank goodness), found some Starbucks and Burger King and then waited to board. We finally boarded what was a pretty empty flight (I had a whole row to myself) and headed back to Denver, where I was greeted by the most handsome man with a beautiful flower. It was good to be home, but I really enjoyed my visit in Texas. I like being with my family and miss them! All in all, it was a very wonderful weekend.
Texas Day #2 (Sunday)
After church Sunday night, my brother and I picked up Taco Bueno for dinner. Yum yum!Part of my dinner--MexiDips and chips
Sunday night, my good friend Laura came over. She just spent a month in Australia and brought her pictures over to show us. After picture viewing, we all played Chicken Foot and watched "High School Musical." I love playing games with my family!

This is the house where I spent a portion of my growing up years, and I am headed there today! Today, my mom is flying back to Texas, and I am going with her! I am going for the weekend to do some fun family stuff, and I am looking forward to it! My sister will be flying home as well, so we will all be together.
It has rained a TON in Texas this summer (which is very, very unusual), so these next pictures show how much water was in our yard. It is funny to see the grass so green, because it has never been this green before.
A rainbow after the storm. I am excited about my trip and will bring back lots of pictures of good times, good family and friends, and good Tex-Mex to share with you guys! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Whew, what a weekend!
All in all, it was a very great weekend. It was rewarding to ride that trail, as it is the furthest I have gone thus far. At the end of the summer, we are riding a 31-mile ride for the American Diabetes Association, and I hope to improve my time and endurance. But my next goal is to ride the path from Copper Mountain to Vail. We'll see--it requires a climb over Vail pass, which is 10,000 feet elevation!

Back to Normal
Take Me Out to the Ball Game
On Friday night, Jason and I went to see the Rockies play the Phillies with a group of people from church. We had a great time (despite Jason's face above--he thinks it is soooo funny to make this face in pictures), and the Rockies pulled out a win in the 11th inning! The day was really hot, but luckily we were in the shade and there was a nice breeze blowing through the field.

Needless to say, our 4th of July wasn't much fun. We had planned to go to our friends' house and cookout and watch fireworks, but I didn't want to leave Oscar home alone sick, so we stayed home. We did cookout--we had burgers, fresh corn on the cob, and potato salad. We had fun red, white and blue dessert but were too full to eat it. Maybe today. And we didn't go watch fireworks, either. Sort of a bummer, but life goes on. Hope you all had a great holiday!

Happy 4th of July!
Daisy is sporting the classic red, white and blue motif, while Oscar is wearing the hot dog bandanna in honor of all the cookouts today.
Please keep Oscar in your thoughts. He has been sick all day, and I have been debating with myself whether or not to take him to an emergency vet.
