Wedding Reception

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was missing the wedding of my best friend's son. Tonight they had a reception for the new couple in Dallas that I was able to attend. Since I've known the groom since he was less than 5 years old, it was almost like having one of my sons get married.

It was a fun time for Rachel also since she got to see a lot of the friends she grew up with (she and Michael were in the same class at school).

Rain Delay

It only rained for about 5 minutes, but it took 20 minutes to get the tarp out and the get it put away again.

We left when the game was tied, and by the time we got home, they were well behind and went on to lose it. But it was fun to go and see a friend there.

Not Much

Is a bobble head anything like a bottle neck?

In other news, I'm having another "bake the perfect cheesecake" marathon. I told my good friend that I would prepare a couple cheesecakes for a reception she is hosting this Saturday for her son and his new bride. The trick I added to my repertoire this round was to buy a drywall knife to cut them with!
This evening I tried my hand at touch-up painting some rust spots on Rachel's car created from the BB-gun attack. Since the front of it looks so good now, we're trying to patch up the rust spots on the back. Speaking of Rachel, she had yet another interview today which she felt good about. Now a couple more days of waiting to find out if it amounts to anything.

Even the plants get sunburned if you leave them outside too long in the Texas heat.
