Road Trip to Round Top

On Saturday, we did a McAdams, Scillian, and now Smith family tradition. Unfortunately, Greg did not get to join us as he was in Temple visiting his Mimi who is in the hospital. So, all 7 of us piled into Dad's Suburban and drove up to Round Top, TX. For those of you who have never been to Round Top, I highly recommend it...totally worth the beautiful drive! The real reason we go is to eat at Royer's Round Top Cafe! This little eclectic mom & pop eatery has great food and lots of conversation starters on their walls (and ceiling). And I can't forget to mention the pies! Their pies are to die for!! The chocolate chip pie is my personal favorite (don't forget the ice cream).

Well, the weather was gorgeous so we got some great pictures...even caught the end of bluebonnet season!

Geoff's Big Birthday!

Last weekend, we got to celebrate with Greg's brother, Geoff, as he turned a year older! Everyone enjoyed dinner at Guadelajara and then drinks and singing at Pete's Piano Bar. Here are some pics of the celebrations!

Boilin' up some Cajun Goodness

Greg has been talking about having a summer-time shrimp boil since the day we moved into the new house. So, I told him we needed to have a practice run first so he could perfect his boiling technique. This past Saturday, we enjoyed the cool spring weather on the back porch while enjoying some cold beer and watching a pot of shrimp boil.

Side note: Greg's brother, Geoff gave us the outdoor burner for a wedding present and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. Thanks Geoff for the great gift!

Here's Greg trying to get the burner lit...

And all the yummy goodness to go along with the shrimp...

I was such a great supervisor!

Dropping in the shrimp...

And the finished product! Bon appetite!

Since the dry run was a raving success, be on the lookout for your invitation to the Smith Family Shrimp Boil later this summer!!

Girls (and little baby boy) night!

Well, here I go on a blogging binge again...

This past week, my high school friend, Angela, made a visit to Spring for Easter. We finally found some time to get together for some good girl talk and to play with her handsome new baby boy, Jack! And I have to say...WHAT A CUTIE!! He was so good and tolerated being handed around between all of us while we caught up.

Here is a close up of Mr. Handsome, himself!

Mr. B came to visit too. Here he is with his mama! You can tell he was pooped from playing with his friends, Prissy & Vegas :-)

I had such a good time holding the little guy. Thank you so much Angela for coming by and sharing your beautiful baby boy!
