to those of you freezing in other parts of the country. It was a beautiful weekend in Austin. Saturday brought rain (hooray!) before clearing up and revealing a picture perfect Sunday – blue skies, 70 degrees and pleasantly sunny. Despite all the bad things about living in the red state of Texas, there are some benefits. Frankie loves the outdoors. When he is upset, nothing calms him like a walk outside (most of our stroller trips put him to sleep). He is fascinated by birds, trees and the endless variety of colors and shapes to focus on. Here are some pictures we took while in our backyard.
