Lake Somerville...

For Labor Day this year we made the trek down to Lake Somerville to camp out with friends and Rhett's family. We arrived Friday afternoon and set up camp! We stayed 3 nights and I think that was plenty. It was a warm weekend but great memories were made!

The dogs were a little cramped since the jeep was packed full! At least it was only for 5 hours.
I rode in the back with the boys.. Brady was shotgun while Rhett drove.                                     
 The dogs loved getting in the lake! Denver didn't get to experience it since just had his surgery. 
Ricky and Robin brought their boat! It was great getting back on the lake with everyone!
Here are the pups holding down the fort! 
We also played bag toss and monkey nuts! Even in the dark...
Day two was fun! We learned to wake surf and got more sun! 
Rhett was awesome of course...
 I on the other hand struggled a little, but managed to get up and over the wake!
  Here is Erik skiing for the first time! He did great! 
Everyone had fun with all the water sports!
The sunsets every night were incredible! 
It was a great weekend and I look forward to next year! 


Well we took the plunge and got Dukie Bear a playmate! We adopted him from the shelter here in Denton... They said he was a lab/hound mix, however after further research turns out he is a labradane! Of course. But who could resist this cute little (for now) face! 

I think he and Duke are getting along great! They play all day and cuddle at night!

I am interested to see how big Denver gets...

summer skin...

This past weekend we went down to Waco to hang out with Marilyn's family. The boys went fishing with Willie and caught 45 fish! The gals & Byll partied on the VIP boat. It was a fun time had by all!


summer time..

We are definitely in the dog days of summer..
He has the good life...
I picked up a sixer the other day of the Armadillo Ale's Greenbelt Farmhouse Ale. It was pretty good. I am not a huge hefeweizen fan so it wasn't my favorite, but it was refreshing on a summer evening.



My cousin Kyle and his girlfriend Dora made the trek with my Aunt & Uncle, Kim & David, down from Pennsylvania last week. I haven't seen Kyle since our wedding in the summer of 2010 so I was really excited to see him! We hung out Friday night with them and my other cousin Scott and his wife Trish. We went to eat at Funky Baja and then out to Bronson Rock for some live music.
This one is pretty dark.. but that is Kyle on the right and Scott on the left.

Dora & Trish

Scott has some pretty awesome dance moves..


Let there be...

Light! I bought this lamp at a thrift store here in Denton because I liked it shape! It was really dirty and needed to be cleaned up. After it was clean I painted the porcelain part coral for the guest room. I really like the finished product!



For the month of August Infinite Blue Bird has been the featured artist at the DIME ( Denton Independent Maker's Exchange) Store! This cute shop supports all local handmade artist! We were thrilled to be apart of the store when it opened this past spring and are trilled to be the featured artist for the month!

Saturday we headed to Dallas for Michaels 27th birthday bash. We checked into the hotel then trekked over to the Community Brewery for the afternoon! We played bag toss while we were there too... The Hasserd's came to play!

In true Caitie fashion, she brought mini bundt cakes for everyone to enjoy! So cute. 

After that we taxied over to Chicken Scratch for dinner and live music!

Here is a video Marilyn took while Rhett & I were dancing.. he was leading me in from of the fan that was blowing mist! 

It was a fun night had by all! This summer is shaping up to be really fun filled!!
