We took a break to go into town to eat at Cypress Creek Cafe. It's my favorite place to eat in Wimberley and it did not disappoint.

We spent last weekend with Eric's parents and sister's family at Lake Whitney. McGown Park is beautiful and the camping spots were nice and big.
When we arrived at the campground, we learned the burn ban was in effect and all fires were prohibited including charcoal grills. Since we had only brought food to grill, we ran to town to buy a table top propane grill. It worked great! I didn't miss the campfire one bit.
We kids were B U S Y all day long. The boys loved playing pirates on the playscape. Aren't they tough?
We sat around in a circle and played a game where we told a story one word at a time. The stories we came up with were quite entertaining! Gege brought paint and the kids had fun painting rocks.
We kept ourselves entertained by going on wagon rides, playing patty cake, throwing the frisbee and playing three different kinds of games with balls.
Eric's parents took their boat, so we went fishing on the lake. Ethan discovered he no longer wants to be a fisherman.
Austin loved driving the boat. Ok, he loved pretending to drive the boat.
Gege caught two fish and I caught one. Woo hoo!
Ethan and Austin love their cousin Jake. They had the best time running around together all weekend.

I finished my fourth quilt! I made it for Sammy's baby boy Max. I'm linking up to Amy's Sew & Tell for the first time!
I used Modern Meadow fabrics and some random aqua and mustard fabrics I found at the Houston quilt show. It measures 38 inches square.
Seriously, how cute is this duck? He matched so well I just couldn't resist taking his picture on the quilt.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any cuter...
Baby Max! He makes my heart melt. All babies should be this happy and sweet.

Monday we loaded up our ducks to take them back to the farm in Taylor. The kids love going to the farm to see all the animals.
The boys put Donald, Daisy, Yogi and Cindy in their new home on the farm. They will stay in the cage until they are big enough to be in a bigger pen with other birds.
It was hard to say goodbye to our sweet little ducks. They are the cutest things and we will miss them! Hopefully they will love their new home on the farm and the dog and cat in this picture will leave them alone!

Our family loves PBS, so it was very exciting to meet the masterminds behind all our favorite PBS shows and the team responsible for the interactive online site. The boys love playing on http://www.pbskids.org/. It's educational and fun!

We let the ducks go for their first swim and they loved it!
How cute are those webbed feet?
Lauren loves the ducks.
I mean really loves the ducks!
We had a fun afternoon hanging out in the backyard with our baby ducks. Tomorrow we take them to the farm. We sure will miss them! We really enjoyed this last month and are so grateful Erica let us borrow her incubator!
