I didn't take this photo.... my neighbor "NinJenni" did. I'm the person flipping out of the slide.
Hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend.

For Memorial Day, we had a little get together for lunch.. that ended with a fun water-slide / water balloon fight at the neighbor's house.
Today we had a lot of fun. We know that we're able to do so because people fought for our freedom. And, some people gave all... and we remember them always... but today most of all.

Garcia's Restaurant has always been a favorite to visit in San Marcos and Buda, Texas. They recently opened in Kyle.
The family and I went to dinner there last night. It was pretty good, but the best thing about it was the salsa.

I was in a kickball tournament this past weekend. My team, PRAY BALL came in 12th of 13 teams. It was A LOT OF FUN.
This is Texas Swag. They took 1st. Undefeated. Pretty impressive with the folks who played this Sprint 2011 season for the Kyle, Texas Parks and Recreation Department's Adult Kickball League.
SO glad this league was created. It's a lot of fun and great exercise. If you told me 2 years ago I'd be playing kickball at 38 years of age, I'd have laughed at you.
Now I'm PRAY BALL's coach and I've played 6 seasons. Wow.

(OK... she's looking so serious because she's handing out candy to kiddos who didn't get enough eggs at the Easter Egg Hunt here... and some kids off camera are trying to pull a fast one on her by hiding their candy so they can get more)

Bright like a steadfast star it smiles
Aboon the battle's burning files;
The mirkest cloud, the darkest night,
Shall ne'er make dim that beauteous light:
And the best blood that warms my vein
Shall flow ere it shall catch a stain.
Far has it shone on fields of fame,
From matchless Bruce till dauntless Graeme,
From swarthy Spain to Siber's snows;
The thistle's grown aboon the rose.

My church, the Kyle United Methodist Church will again be sponsoring the Washer's Tournament.
If you are in the area and want to play washers.... come on out.
Here's the information - http://frontporchdays.com/id16.html
Sign up ahead of time... or show up and sign up in person.
The first 24 teams signed up will play.
This year the proceeds will go towards 2 different but equally great charities.
1. Hope & Love 4 Kids - They help children in the Kyle community by providing basic necessities, comforting them in their time of need and uplifting them through service and outreach.
2. Soles4Souls - a shoe charity that collects gently worn shoes and monies to provide shoes to those in need. The KUMC has collected over 200 pairs of gently worn shoes... and the proceeds from the washer's tournament will help defray the cost of shipping the shoes.
