Lost in Austin

I would, if I could get lost, so that the trip would last longer…..as long as Christopher, Annie and Tom were there. Mother’s day week-end was a memorable occasion. Truthfully, I could have been anywhere, and in this company, I would not care….. The two superstars of Chicago would not let anything less than perfection happen…..We stayed in a gorgeous hotel with a great place to run, a beautiful pool and a swim up bar….well, kind of. Christopher introduced us to Congress Ave. “I know this town” He said. It was hard to believe that we were still in Texas. The trip was perfect. We can’t wait to do it again, but next time with Peyton, Bekah, Debby and Bruce included!

The holidays have lasted a long time……..Peyton was here for five weeks!!!!! (Thank you Annie Sturgis for this wonderful photo!)Christopher has been here since Christmas Eve!!!!He has been working hard. We are so proud of him and the way that he represents Groupon.  We had several days of  t-shirt weather, butit’s cold here in San Antonio and it’s time for him to go take care of his snow princess in Chicago…..

The Kids

Annie, Christopher and Peyton

This was Thursday night. I love Annie in this hat that we found at Ruffled Feathers in Floresville.

pretty adorable.......

Tonight is our last night with Peyton. I am excited for him to be making his dreams come true. As much as we miss him, we would not change his mind, if we could……


He amazed us with his juggling skills and a big surprise was his graphic art talent!

I have several paintings that I am working on and a wonderful Birds In Art book that I am saving for tomorrow!
