This summer marks Lola and Zoe's 6th (June 5th), my Dad's 65th (June 14th), my brother's 25th (June 19th), my 28th (June 29th), and my Mom's 61st (July 28th). We ended up singing "Happy Birthday to everyone except Brendan" because that was just easier. Also, my father in law's birthday is June 25th and he'll be 60 this year...talk about a lot of summer birthdays! Throw in mother's and father's day and the summer is one big celebration.
Last night, a big group of my family went out to Jasper's in the domain. This was my first time there. I liked it, and I would especially recommend it for a special occasion or for drinks on the outdoor patio, which was really nice. Below are 3 of Mimi's 4 granddaughters (we missed Elena, Amanda's sister, who is in Jerusalem with their parents), and Jeanne's two daughters Skyler and Kate (who were 2 of the flower girls in Brendan's and my wedding). Skyler and Kate are absolutely delightful--so grown up and articulate. We don't get to see them or their parents Jeanne and Jeff nearly enough because they live in Ohio, but I treasured the time with all of them.

We also had my Dad's sister Elaine and her husband John and my mom in attendance. The more the merrier.
Today, we're enjoying one last day in Austin before leaving for New York tomorrow. I don't know what all the day will entail, but I do want to get my hands on some tomato pie from Kerbey Lane Cafe...
Here's to tomato pie!
