visit the Texas State Aquarium.
It was baby boys first time at an aquarium... this trip is
turning out to be a lot of "firsts" for him.
something about my refusal to use a flash in low light settings.
I'm stubborn like that.
But I did capture this piranha... he was smiling at me...
might be because I looked like dinner.
started raining, so we bolted for cover.
We worked up quite an appetite at the aquarium
and lucky for us Pier 99 was within walking distance
where I had the best mahi burger.

We're back at "our spot" this year to celebrate
and the memories of that day are still vivid and beautiful.
If I could relive one day over and over, July 27, 2007 would be it.
More rain is expected for most of today...
So, we're off to let baby boy experience his first aquarium.
Here's a post I did for our one year anniversary
with some of my favorite photos from those few days.

super simple, simply scrumptious.
The Pioneer Woman posted about them last week.
She made her meatballs from scratch.
Since I'm trying to avoid standing over a hot stove more than I
have to this summer, I opted to buy a bag of pre-made frozen meatballs.
And it worked just fine.
Maybe PW should have done the same... 'cause it actually
ended up being about a "16-Minute Meal" with
the frozen meatballs.
Try 'em this weekend for quick and filling lunch or dinner.
Your family will love you for it!
Oh, and please excuse my blog for the moment...
it's under a little construction.

It's sweltering here in Dallas.
As a result, I haven't been cooking very much... boo.
I did, however, make this the other night and it was light and delicious.
Shrimp, zucchini, and squash just say summer to me.
Let's make it! Here's what you'll need...
Squash and zucchini, sliced.
You'll also need about 1 cup of white wine... that is, if you're a sinner like me.
And, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper.
Saute your veggies for about 2 minutes in a little butter and olive oil.
Generously sprinkle on the your garlic powder, onion powder,
and salt and pepper.

I've spent the past week and a half catching up on laundry,
comforting a toddler that's cutting a molar (or two),
and scratching no less than a dozen chiggar bites.
Oh, and something exciting happened... Well, exciting for me anyway.
I finally figured out how to apply textures to photographs.
Well, I actually knew how to apply a texture to a photo... it was removing it from
the skin and other areas that I just couldn't figure out.
I've been trying to figure it out since, like, January.
I don't know why I wasn't getting it... It was just one of those things I guess.
Here's a handful I've had fun with the past few days...
