Hey!  Hope all is well.  It feels like we're really powering into spring around here.
It was 91 degrees yesterday (Saturday) and was very breezy and in the mid sixties today.  So.... classic Austin springtime. 
Friday I went out to lunch with Laura, Afton, Ruben, Miguel, and baby Diego.  Ruben is still out on paternity leave, so it was cool that he came out to meet up with us.  We had a nice visit.

Friday night we went out to dinner at Tarka.  Raylan liked it.  He likes samosas.  Who woulda guessed that a two year old would be so into Indian food?

"Dad, I think you have a spaceship on your shirt."

Saturday we ran errands and did chores, mostly.  Raylan helped to wash the cars. He was excited about that.

     "You might not ever get rich
       But let me tell ya it's better than diggin' a ditch
        There ain't no tellin' who you might meet
        A movie star or maybe even an Indian chief
        At the car wash...."

What?  I'm hungry.  What?!

Saturday night we celebrated all of the spring birthdays (Mom, me, Jamie, and Ryan).  Our family (including Dick and Susan) went to The Carillon down on the UT campus.  It was a nice restaurant with good food.  We had a really nice time.  We got a babysitter, and it was great to get out and have a pleasant, grown up meal with family in a setting where we could all relax and talk with good food and drinks.  Thanks, Mom and Dad!

Sunday we went out to breakfast, played with Raylan a bit, and then went to the zoo.  As always, we had a good time.

We enthusiastically ride trains!

Amy made a new Mexican chicken dish for dinner (I think from a cookbook that Ryan got for her), and I liked it!
Other from that we just played with Raylan, mostly.

"I like to win!  Ka-chow!"

That was about it.  Have a good week!
