Yeah.. this heat is horrible. I want summer to end immediately. Or at least by the end of August.
A few weeks ago, we took a little road trip down to Austin to check it out. We've heard amazing things about this city but weren't "wowed" til we got to this specific area called Steiner Ranch. Beautiful homes, tons of green trees, and super cool restaurants with a view.
Didn't quite catch the story behind this space shuttle thing... but the boys thought it was cool =)
This lake was SO cool. This was the view from the balcony of the seafood restaurant we ate at. Amazing
And we happened to be there right at sunset. Sooo pretty
This sunset was one night back in Webster where we live. While I am so sick of the summer out here, I shouldn't complain when things look this pretty.
Ahhh so many reasons I love this little boy. A big one is this smile!
Oh it was just himself, on camera. But of course he thought that was so cool!
Still a picky eater beyond all reason, so don't even get me started on that. But someone's got to lick the brownie batter bowl...
Took another trip to NASA
I bet this cone outside could have entertained him for 2 hours
Snow cone. Shaved ice. Whatever you call it.
So there is this wildlife safari park about 20 min from our house I've been thinking about checking out. It's expensive so I was hesitant, but me and Carter finally went today. Besides the fact that it was blazing HOT, it was soooo fun! The animals live in the "wild," or at least in a more natural habitat without being locked up like in a zoo. But you can feed them and pet them, and most are very friendly.
The zebras I think were my favorite. They were SO pretty, with those distinct stripes!
The camels were not shy at ALL.
