Another year, another trip to Shiner

We took another trip to Houston the year for Bheeshmar's birthday. We stopped at Shiner on the way again and had samples of beer at 11am and took the tour. We stayed with the Kuglers and had a great dinner at Ouisie's Table. The next day we all (kids included) went to the St Arnold brewery. We took a picnic lunch from Central Market and again drank samples at 11am. Reminded me of going to the Beer Garden in Germany when I was young.

Blowing out the Candles

Duncan celebrated his 6th birthday party with his classmates at the Alamo Drafthouse cinema, where we watched the 80s classic family film "The Flight of the Navigator". We ate pizza, drank sodas, and watched the movie. After the movie, we enjoyed Duncan's donut cake from Krispy Kreme.

Sleep over

Xander is at his first sleep over tonight at our neighbor Dalton's house. It is strange not tucking him into bed - I'm kinda sad.

In November, Grandma and Grandpa came to visit us in Austin. We went to the Farmer's Market and the Salt Lick. Grandma and Grandpa took the boy to see Astro Boy at the theater. In this picture we are all having burgers at P Terry's before Grandma and Grandpa go back to Montana.

Snack Time

This weekend we took a trip to the Renaissance Festival. On Saturday we drove to Conroe and went for a boat ride on Lake Conroe with the Kuglers (Claire, Eric, Lainey and Ben). We met the Greggs (Chris, Christa, Joshua and Samantha) at the hotel, then we all went to Burger Fresh for dinner. Their burger was voted the best in Texas by Texas Monthly.
Sunday we all went to the Renaissance Festival. We watched the Joust (in the French section this time - Duncan was mad that we were not in the section with the same Joust Maiden as last year), shot the bows and ate a bunch of fair food (funnel cake and turkey legs!)

We went trick-or-treating with Mason and his Mom Wendy as well as Tommy and Tuk. Mason was Colt McCoy, so Wendy borrowed my blond wig and went as Colt McCoy's mom. Tommy was a WWII fighter pilot and Tuk was Amelia Earhart - both super authentic costumes. We circled the big block as this was the first year that Duncan could really walk a long way without wanting to be carried - the candy helped motivate. We met a creepy kid along the way who was obsessed with Princess Peach and followed us.

KSW Halloween Party

At the KSW Halloween Party

Halloween morning the KSW studio had a Halloween party. They had some games and a very cool/scary haunted house in the dojang. The boys went in without us, but with some friends. Duncan got so scared he had to be carried out by Sam. We all dressed up in our costumes and won the best group costume trophy! We were Donkey Kong, Mario, Princess Peach, and Luigi.
