Ruth Bowden's 100th Birthday Party

Not many people can say that they know someone who is 100 years old. But we do! Ben and I went to Kerrville this past weekend for his great-grandmother Ruth Bowden's 100th Birthday party! Unfortunately I am not the best at taking pictures, but plenty of other people were, so I didn't feel too much pressure. I'm sure it will be a little while before we get the photo of us with Ruth that the professional photographer took, but here's one from a year a half ago!Heidi and Amber posing for the camera. Those two are so cute!
Little Kyle! I like to think that Ben and I were his favorites at the party. Ben got called "The Baby Whisperer" a few times.

Ben's cousin Jared who looks like he could be his brother, Ben, Aunt Janet, and Ben's cousin Grace. Thanks to everyone! We had such a good time and were so happy to see everyone!

Labor Day Fun with the Fam

Labor Day was a blast! We went with my fam to this awesome park just south of Buda where we rode our bikes, ate awesome food, and swam! There are no swimming pics because my mom didn't want to take any.

My dad is the master of the grill.
Alli and Ben having a great time. Hope everyone else had as much fun on their day off as we did!

The Start of Law School

Yes, I know. It has been exactly one month since my last post. Part of that is because I haven't felt that we've had anything "big" to post about, and the other part is that things have started getting busier with Ben in law school. Today marks the end of the second week that Ben has been at University of Texas Law School. He is enjoying it so much and I love hearing about all the cases they discuss in class and how that affects our laws today. It's also nice to have a husband who is happy and busy and really loving what he's doing. I was worried that when he started law school he wouldn't find it as fascinating as he thought and that he would be disappointed, so I am very glad that has not happened. As for me, I have been working 8 to 5 every day and trying to stay busy having lunches with friends and whatnot. When Ben was still at his full time job, he would come home every day and have lunch with me, and I really miss being able to see him during that time. So, even though I have Ricey for company, occasionally I go out to lunch with a friend, or, like yesterday, have lunch with my mom. It's been a pretty smooth adjustment so far, and usually Ben comes home around 5 every day, so he's not gone much longer than he was when he was working. Any way, no pics to post this time, just some thoughts for the day. I hope everyone is having an awesome Labor Day weekend!
