1. I like seeing my family! I spent the three-day weekend down in Dallas with my sister and her family and my parents. We had lots of fun at the water park, then the baby pool in the backyard, and then the swimming pool. As hot and muggy as it was down there, being in the water was the best option. I really love spending time with them. My dad also decided to buy a reclining sofa (after much consideration), and it took a lot of wrangling to fit it into their Subaru Outback for the drive back to New Mexico. The dogs wanted to snuggle on the couch (of course), but were really shedding and pretty stinky so I took the playing-in-the-backyard-pool opportunity to give them both baths. It was really nice to have my sister to help me.
2. I love hymns! We went to my sister's Methodist church while down in Dallas and heard a really wonderful Memorial Day sermon. We went unfortunately (for me) to the service with the praise band since it lined up with Sunday school for the kids. The band was quite good, but I much prefer traditional choral music/hymns during church so I during some of the singing I spent time flipping through the Methodist hymnal. Many of its hymns are the same as those in our (the Episcopal) hymnal, but many aren't. I was excited to see this one, it's not in our hymnal but ever since hearing a recording of it as a kid, I've loved it. Too bad we didn't get to sing any!
4. I love the instagram account Weratedogs. It's a cute dog instagram, but their captions are really adorable. You should check it out if you're a dog lover and on instagram. Here are my preciouses in the meantime.
Happy summer everyone! Thanks to LeeAnna for linking us up!
