#2 son was thrilled to be a part of it.   


it's not easy being that age, especially when you have a much younger brother that likes to push all your buttons.   

 la gloria's ice house san antonio tacos al pastor 

Probably the best meal we had was at La Gloria's on the way home.  LOVE those tacos al pastor.  Funny, I ordered four tacos, not realizing they don't come a la carte, we received four orders (12 tacos) but the kids gobbled them down really quickly. We also enjoyed some sopes and a bubbling hot molcajetes. 

eanes 2014-2015 

Marking a summer that is quickly closing, the first day of school. This is the first year we have the kids in three different schools. #1 son was so excited to start middle school, he got up early and set the breakfast table.  He gathered his supplies and waited for the rest of us outside. 

Also of note, the traditional hair dye was applied by two of them on the eve of  school starting.

hcms 2014-15 

Time.... is moving too fast.  It will be a demanding school year.  We've tried our best to create a BIG summer filled with family fun.  Work hard, and play hard, a successful school years deserves fun filled summers. Already talking/planning summer 2015. But WAIT, summer 2014 isn't completely done... it's still HOT out...
