We had a sort of long 4 day week (there was a bit of stress about whether we were getting a foster child placement last week, but it didn't ultimately work out), but a nice weekend.
On Friday night I went to a docket for the attorneys, judges, social workers, and doctors who work on the Travis County mental health dockets. It was fun! It had been a number of years since we did something like that. We had happy hour at a place called Fixe.

Anyway, we hung out and had drinks, there were some predictably ridiculous dance moves, and then I stumbled into an Uber to get home (I couldn't get my RideAustin app to work).
It was the latest night I'd had in a while. Had a bit of a headache the next morning...

It was good to see them and hang out. Spencer is a cute kid.

Raylan loves a party, of course, and he had a blast.

As usual, that moment passed before I got my camera ready...

On Sunday it was raining. We got up and decided to take Raylan to an indoor playground. There's a new one in Oak Hill called Epic Fun.
Once we learned the name, honestly, I'm not sure we had any choice about whether to go.

at other kids. Shooting things is part of what constitutes EPIC FUN!
|Having watched his father drive in Austin traffic for years,|
Raylan had an innate understanding of how bumper cars worked.

In the afternoon Amy went to the gym and Raylan took a nap.
It rained pretty much all day on Sunday. Raylan did some playing and watched some Paw Patrol.
And I think that was pretty much it! Amy made some good tortilla soup for dinner.
We had no band practice because Reed and Frank were both out.
We had a nice weekend.
I hope that everyone has a good week!
