What a wonderful weekend we had in Dallas! True - it was only a bit over 48 hours, but it was glorious. It was a packed weekend full of friends and family, and many things I've been missing! I've never been more excited about Freebirds and Trinity Hall! You know what else I miss without knowing it? I didn't realize how much I missed thunderstorms. Although it wasn't ideal to have a power outage on Saturday night while Meme was in the middle of cutting my hair in the living room (but completely hilarious that she finished cutting it with my dad holding flashlights and a head lamp) and it wasn't ideal that the airport shut down Sunday night, which turned our 10:30 arrival time in Denver to a 1am arrival, due to rain delays, it was so wonderful being in the midst of all that lightening, wind and rain! There's something so powerful and comforting to me about a thunderstorm. I know that sounds funny, but maybe it is just a reminder of how big and mighty our creator is....how powerful He is. And what a perfect reminder to have on Easter weekend, when we celebrate his death and resurrection!
The other thing I remembered how much I miss? Texas weather. People might think that's crazy, but I must say, this weekend in Dallas affirmed that I am a hot and sticky weather fan - it's true. 90 degrees and humid? Yes please! It was the first time I have worn short sleeves since we moved! Thanks for that Dallas! It was really sad to come home to 40 degree weather again. I'm holding out though for those beautiful, perfect weathered summers everyone keeps going on about her in Colorado. It better be pretty amazing to make up for this freezing excuse for a spring season here. And to keep me from wishing I was in a tank top and flip flops at home right now.
We really enjoyed seeing everyone. Please know how much I miss you every day here in Denver, and how much of a tease it was to only see yall for a very short time. But not to worry friends. We shall return! And please remember if you would like to see us and have our undivided attention (instead of VERY divided), come see us in Denver!!
Here's some pics from our wonderful time....
Hooray for friends at Trinity Hall!
Cheesy easter egg dying
Here goes nothing...
Best egg competition! Dad took it hands down.
This is supposed to be A&M meets Razorback.
My Razorback attempt was sub par.
Miss everyone! Can't wait to return in a few months for a longer stint!
