7th Anniversary Fun in Austin

We've been very busy! Lots to post and catch up on! This lack of desktop computer is driving me nutso and making things verrrry slow for me & my blogging!

I'm breaking up last weekend into 3 parts:

(1) *Anniversary Fun* with the Goerlichs (yes folks, the G's celebrated their 8th anniversary the DAY before the Steeces celebrated their 7th!)

(2) *Dining out fun* with the grandparents (the kids have been a real *HOOT* lately)

(3) *Joe's fun-filled 31st birthday* (playing around like the true *kid* that he is!)!


We drove to Austin and headed into town for the Saturday basketball game (Texas A&M verses ut...and in case you were wondering, the Ags beat the mess out of the longhorns........ that was all for you, babe).
Jay, Ed, Joe, Dan



Jess and myself--trying to bring some much needed estrogen to the group.



Our little Saturday couldn't have been more perfect! Talk about some CRAZY weather---snow one day, and sunny highs of 60's the next day! We definitely took advantage of the beautiful sunshine on our faces---how I've missed you!
Me and Mari



Happy 8th to the gorgeous Goerlichs! Chris & Mare



Happy 7th to the silly Steeces! Suz & Joe



We just bounced from patio to patio...cruisin' around Austin without a care in the world! It was heaven.



Got all *fancied up* for a night out on the town with our handsome men-folk!




Ate the most amazing food at La Traviata (per Bubba's suggestion) at 4th and Congress... HIGHLY recommend this cozy little place (and the Spaghetti alla Carbonara) for your next date night! CHEERS!



And off to see our favorite musician (next to Dave, of course)...Bob Schneider!



I love you, Bob...



Mari and I were taking turns wearing my flip flops---you see, I always leave the house in cute heels, but pack flip flops in my purse---just in case the 'ole feetsies need a break.



Case-in-point...these were my little sausages once we got back to our hotel room! Ahhh...the high price of trying to be "fashionable".



A HUUUUUGE THANK YOU!!!! to Dids and Kate for watching the quads for us---which is NO EASY TASK. Seriously, it takes an unbelievable amount of energy to tend to 4 two-year-olds all day (especially when you don't do it day in and day out!) We cannot thank you enough! Hope you have recovered by now! Hee hee

Oh, and Dids, thanks for letting us take your car downtown!



We promise, we didn't go joy riding or anything...


Hugs all around!

Way too much cuteness for one post!!! Joe in a tie, yum.... oh, I gotta stop, I may meet him one day!! Kidding, kidding, your husband is gorgeous, but you my friend, are a friggin bombshell right down to the sausage links for toes! And Mari and Chris, seriously the 4 of y'all probably made people sooo jealous all weekend! The best part of you and Mari's beauty is it is truly inside and out!!! Love you, you sexy thing!!!
