At the end of May, our family all migrated to Austin to help celebrate Price's graduation from the University of Texas. We were so proud of him and his accomplishments there, and we know Dad would have been too. Because Dad loved UT so much, I think it made the weekend a little bit touchy, but we couldn't help but know that he was grinning ear to ear with pride up there.

That night we went out to celebrate in true Austin fashion. It made me miss living in Austin with all of the energy that is there. Fun was had by all. :) The next morning, we went to brunch at Taverna and then headed to the UT baseball fields to watch the UT vs. Baylor game. It was hot, but the atmosphere is always fun at college baseball games. Rob and I really wish we could attend more A&M games, so it was fun to get another one in the mix. After the game, we headed to shower up and then go to dinner at the Oasis. If you haven't been there lately, they have added several new restaurants out there. One of them was a bar-b-q restaurant, so when Austin heard that, he couldn't pass it up.
You can take the boy out of Texas...

That night, we just hung out at the hotel and enjoyed each other's company. The next morning, the guys headed out to play a round of golf. The girls went and walked around Town Lake and it was so fun to be there again. Ugh, I really miss that. We actually got to catch the end of the guy's golf game, which was really fun. We even got to see Austin get credit for his hole-in-one! It was a fairly easy course, but it was still something fun to celebrate.
Right before we all headed out of town, we got to grab some P. Terry's burgers, which was one of Dad's favorites. I was happy that we all had such a positive weekend knowing that Dad would have wanted it that way. It certainly stung a few times, but we were able to really enjoy the weekend for Price. It really did make me see that the Lord has guided each of us in this season of our lives. We have all gone on in a healthy way without Dad and it is only through Him that we have been able to do so. We are so proud of you, Bub!
