It felt like our weekend went by pretty quickly.

On Friday evening, the weather forecast for Austin included severe thunderstorms and even the possibility of tornadoes.  Travis County sent all of its employees home at 2:00 p.m., because they said they didn't want people driving home during terrible weather at rush hour.

Well, that forecast turned out to be a bit overblown.  We did get some heavy rain, lightning,  and a bit of wind.  We even had pea sized hail for about 5 minutes.  But the serious weather didn't roll in until after 8:00 p.m., and it didn't last very long.  It never felt very threatening.  Which was good!  But we could have used a little more rain...

So Friday night we stayed home.

Saturday we mostly played around.  Amy took Kiddo for a walk, and Raylan and I played with his scooter and climbed trees and stuff.

In the later afternoon/early evening, Shelly and Kit came over with Spencer.  We took the kids to Doc's and had dinner.  The kids got to play on the playground.  Afterward we went back to our house and the kids all played together really well for a while.  It was a  nice evening.  good to catch up with them.

Sunday we got up and went to the park.  We tried to go to Gallindo, but they have locked the gate over by that school for some reason.  Luckily, Ryan called us right as we were getting back into the car.

Walking with Kiddo
We ended up going to Ryan's house and then walking to his neighborhood park with him.
Ryan and Raylan went for a walk on the trails in the neighborhood while Amy and I played with Kiddo on the playground.  It sounded like Raylan had a lot of fun "exploring" with Uncle Ryan.

Kiddo leads the way to the spiral slide.  she and Amy must've gone down it
ten times.
Later we went to Cici's for some pizza.  In the evening I went to band practice with Frank, Reed, and Jim.  Jim's bass guitar broke, and he managed to fix it with some tape.  Amazing.
Anyway, we had fun, and I think we sounded pretty good.

That was the weekend!  Hope you had a good one!
