We've done our best at taking advantage - last Friday night we met my brother, Rob, at the Oasis and sat outside for about 3 hours (mostly due to wait time, but cold margaritas were available, so whatever.) Every time we drive up to the Oasis it doesn't matter how many cars are in the parking lot Dom always says the following "This place is a gold mine, look at all the cars...printing f***ing money in there, ridiculous." I'm not kidding you - no matter when we have ever gone, he says that at least 10 times. It was gorgeous and the view is stunning even though we are looking at a small pond rather than lake at this point.
Saturday we hit up Stillwood for their 4th annual crawfish boil. On the way there Dom and I were talking about how we would like to throw something 'annual' - like a fish fry, or even crawfish boil. Then we arrived at the party and laughed out loud at ourselves. These folks are for real with their get together. 300 lbs of crawfish, t-shirts for all that donated, 5 kegs, food for kiddos, a jumpy thing in the backyard for the kiddos or possibly drunk adults, and 3 live bands! We had an awesome time and hope to make the sponsor list on the t-shirt in 2010. So yeah, maybe we'll just throw a small xmas party and stay out of their way.
Sunday we worked in the yard all day trimming, planting, and fertilizing. It was a great day to be outside but man yard work is tiring. At least you can see our house now. So, sticking with our theme of annoying little things happening to us (as mentioned in our previous post) - we fertilized and went to turn on the sprinklers when we were done, and ... nothing. It didn't even pretend to try and turn on. Greeeat. If you don't water heavily it kills your yard once you put fertilizer down. So Dom was on the phone with the sprinkler guru's for two days before someone finally came out and fixed it. $700 later they are working. Apparently lightening struck the ground when we were in Mexico and fried everything. Ahhh...life. Our yard better look damn good this spring!
Time to close this one out and go sit on the porch. You all know we've got about 2 more weeks before the heat lamps turn on.
I may go run in the sprinklers too, just cause I can now.
