two years ago….

taryn had just developed a fear of the vacuum cleaner.  it hasn’t changed….she still runs in fear at the mere mention of it.  teagan on the other hand gets all giddy, runs and attacks it with gusto.  how two kids from the same gene pool can be sooooo different continues to amaze me.

can you believe i have not picked up my camera once all week?!  not one time.  not one photo of the kids.  it may be that i’m just exhausted trying to keep up with them during the first week of summer break, i dunno.  gotta pick it up today.  i miss it.

and how did all you austinites fare in the nasty weather last night?  we were out in it!  just taryn and i with some friends.  we had a girls night out including pedicures and then a bite to eat.  the sirens went off and we were holed up in the men’s bathroom at the spicy pickle for a long time.  softball size hail and it felt like the cheap metal roof was going to either pop off or cave in any second.  we eventually had to brave it home when they were about to close and our husbands said it was ok to head home.  lightning was hitting the ground all the way home on both sides of us on 183A, longest ride of my life.  t was so scared.  after being shocked by lightning last year it makes me sick just to see it / think about it.  i’ve never been so happy to pull in my driveway!
