Picnic time!

Hello everyone!

We've been having some unbelievably perfect weather here in Houston!
It's just hot enough to wear shorts and t-shirts, but there's a bit of a cool breeze that makes for a perfect  lounging weather under a tree.  So that's exactly what we did!

Friends, dogs, games, yummy finger food, and mimosas.  A perfect afternoon in the park!

Mimosas in the park!  Cheers!

Diamond.  Amanda's adorable little puppy  =)

and of course, Houdini.  The little charmer.  And also a superdog, as you can see.

so much food!!  and I've never tasted a better BLT sandwich in ma life.  yup.
 After we've had our fill, we went about making sure that our four-legged companions had enough to eat as well.  They were the ones running around chasing other dogs and random human beings, so we figured they needed the calories more than we did.  Don't worry, we only fed them healthy things. like avocados. haha

We also had the pleasure of entertaining this adorable little guy.  with his awesome backpack!  Sadly, he was  claimed a couple of minutes later by his owner, who picked him up and carried him away by the bag  haha

life with dogs = no sleep.  As soon as David laid down, the dogs found him to be the most interesting human being on the planet.

hipster roomy.  should be a poster child for Central Market's Kettle Corn!
After lounging around and goofing off a bit longer, we decided to play some frisbee, which was really great! until we threw it into the pond-esq body of water...  we vowed to get another free frisbee during orientation week next year, and moved on to play some cards, under the watchful eye of Houdini.

Amanda and Chris sat on one side of the table, while David, Amulet, and I took up the other, and I swear, the positioning had something to do with the outcome of the game.  Amanda and Chris dominated every single round!  It's ok though,,,  we got some snow cones to make us feel a little better...  haha

If you ever visit Houston, we would highly recommend taking a stroll around Hermann Park!  It's quite large, and you'll be able to find whatever it is you are looking for in a park there.  Including a little red choo choo train!

Spending all day outside is an incredibly tiring business, even if you don't do anything at all!  and all of us, including this little lady, were pretty pooped when we got home.  She would not get up once she got into this position  haha!   dogs are pretty much the greatest in the world, no?  ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by~
