AUSTIN

We took a much needed vacation to visit friends in Austin, and had the best time. First of all, staying at Casa Grant with our friends Shannon and Danielle (and Shaye-bear, Dayne-o and Quinn) is paradise.

We kicked off the trip with an immediate game of evening kickball, boys against girls, natch'.

Danielle's got a mean arm.

In Texas you don't have to go to a playground to swing. They actually have them in some backyards. It kinda' blew Everett's mind.
