Had a few minutes to take some photos of the progression of our move in. We have been here for two months now. There is still lots to do and the going is slow! It is a lot more peaceful except when the late night trains roll down the railroad across the highway.

I apologize for not updating sooner, but, we have been in the for a month plus 2 days. We got our belongings out of storage 1 day before the rent was due! Here are a few photos of the messy house plus some of our cookout.

Move in from storage!

House update ….

It’s coming down to the wire. The house is nearing completion, the refiling of the loan should be finished soon, the closing will be set soon and my stress level can’t take much more. The bricks are up, the garage door is up, there are cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms, the walls are painted and dirt has been dumped out front so the landscaping can take place soon. With that said, here are some picture updates.

While on vacation this week I went to see my grandson. I spent the weekend in Austin, Texas with my family. It’s springtime and in Texas and that means Bluebonnets are starting to bloom and taking pictures is a way of life. We grabbed the baby and went to the campus of St. Edwards University where a few of the hillsides had some bluebonnets and we took a few pictures.

Here are a few of the pictures I took as we hammed it up on Saturday and Sunday (so dad could be in the pictures).

Hot Wheels and BBQ

I took a day off (at least until tomorrow).  Spent my afternoon at the 2nd Baptist Church in Katy, Texas. They have an event called Hot Wheels and BBQ.  The food was free and the cars were amazing! I spent about 1-1/2 hours taking some pictures of the cars, people and food!

Hope you like them!
