Family Time

We slowed the pace around here last week when we had the wonderful surprise of all three boys being home.  Momma Bird is happy when all her chicks are in the nest.  Stepping back from the norm was a nice reprieve for us all.  We relished our time spent together lingering over meals ~ time to laugh and share and catch up on life. 

Nate, Gavin (our youngest who will be attending college this fall) and I did have to sneak off one day ~ for a couple of college visits.  Southern Methodist University was our first stop ~ isn't the ceiling of the Dallas Hall at SMU spectacular?

We also headed to Waco and toured Baylor University.  While making the Baylor stop ~ we took a break at Common Grounds for tea and coffee.  The lovely above was parked outside their fine establishment ~ so cool!

We also spent many hours at our favorite local bakery and coffee shop ~ find it here.  During our coffee breaks, Corbin made some time to do what he loves best ~ draw.  He is currently majoring in drawing and has the most unique style.  If you're interested in commissioning a work, you can contact him here.

One evening we braved a thunderstorm and took a drive up to Denton.  Denton is a wonderfully quaint town where Corbin is attending the University of North Texas.  After we enjoyed a delicious dinner here, we headed over to the town square.  Isn't it charming? 

Before our evening came to a close, we had the pleasure of spending a little time at Corbin's favorite hangout, Paschall's.  Once we stepped in the place, it seemed as if we took a step back in time.  

Feeling like the luckiest mom in the world ~ and so thankful to have had Gavin, Reagan and Corbin home for a few days.  By the way, just wondering if you can guess who the chalk art guy (above) is?  

Our week ended all too soon and today we resume our normal routines.  Before I go, here's a toast to you and to Saint Patrick's Day.  Maybe you can tell from the pic above, we're all about juicing these days.  Reagan led the charge in making this yummy green concoction.  I hope your Saint Patty's Day goes without a pinch!
