It's a small world at Minute Maid Park!

We went to an Astros game while we were in Houston (sans baby and dogs) and look who we ran into!

That's right, it's our good friend Rachael! We discovered she was at the game and met up with her and her students.
We were pretty high up, but look! There are players down there!
We did have a great view of the Houston skyline.
Aww, look how much fun we had! Yay Houston! (And they beat the Pirates, too!)

St. Arnold Pilgrimage

Ryan and I got to go to Houston, all by ourselves, for a little overnight getaway. So of course we went to the St. Arnold Brewing Company!

We got there right before 11am, when the tastings opened.
Ryan had lots of questions for the volunteers in charge of dispensing tastings.
Honestly, I'm not as think as you drunk I am.
Check out the awesome beergarden/tasting room!
  Here's Ryan, with Brock Wagner, the founder of St. Arnold Brewing Company. Isn't that a great picture? Everyone looks good, nobody looks drunk or blurry...
...well, almost nobody.
Bye, St. Arnold! We had a great time!

Ryan's enchiladas

Ryan likes to take his lunch to work now, but he doesn't like eating leftovers most of the time. And he definitely doesn't like to be bored.

So late one night, he decided to make some enchiladas. Here they are, about to go into the oven... covered in cheese... mmm...

What was I talking about?

Oh, here they are, all yummy and gooey out of the oven. They were delicious, and I ate the leftovers.

Pretzels and wine

We took a trip out to Driftwood (okay, it's pretty much South Austin) to Mandola Estate Winery. Ryan and I sampled some wine, and Ryan and Luke sampled some pretzel sticks. I think they're both enjoying themselves.

Easter 2010

For Easter, we went down to San Antonio and visited with Nanny, Aunt Robin, and Meme. Luke got to eat ham, and wear shoes! No Easter egg hunt this year, though... maybe next year.

Luke goes shopping

We didn't buy this... just took it for a test drive.

Future Legacy Bulldog

We got Luke all dressed up in his baby Bulldog gear. As the place where Ryan and I met and later got married, obviously Texas Lutheran University is pretty important to our family! Maybe one day Luke will go to TLU... no pressure.

Luke can cruise pretty well by holding on to furniture, toys, people, subwoofers, baby gates, bathtubs, or whatever he can manage to pull up onto. We spent a day at home on Good Friday and he did his best to get into as much trouble as possible, searching through all of the goodies on the changing table even when I'd pulled his exersaucer up close in an effort to block him. Shows how well THAT worked.
