As I do every Sunday, I made my way over to Mosaic Church Austin to share corporate worship with fellow followers, and brothers and sisters in Christ.
It was another fun-filled weekend of Town and Country Soccer. If you remember in my last post, I thought summer had passed.
Boy was I wrong about that! It was quite hot this past weekend, especially for a 1:30 pm soccer game for 4-6 year olds. Nevertheless, our little team did well.
Summer has come to an end here in Austin although the weather keeps attempting to inch its way up beyond 90 degrees.
Weekends often fly by when your having fun, especially this past weekend as I attended a Men’s Retreat.
I managed to escape Austin’s nightmarish traffic to head south to New Braunfels, Texas.
I meant to make the post a month ago. But as usual, life events took precedence and I simply had to hang on for the ride, snapping pics along the way.
I’ve lived in Austin for the past 13 years and counting.
I originally lived in Pflugerville, a suburb just north of Austin, for 4-5 years when I first arrived. However, my wife and I (and our growing family) have called Northwest Austin our home base for the last 9 or so years.
Austin has grown quite a bit over this time and still growing. In fact, many hope that folks will stop moving to Austin to curb soaring real estate prices and reduce the economic constraints of congested traffic, to put it lightly.
Nevertheless, it’s been a fun experience watching Austin burst at its seams in exponential growth.
It’s heating up in Texas, and things are getting quite active around Volente Beach.
As I work the days away, I often see party buses to and fro with intense beach laughter and frolicking.
There’s a bit more loud music playing throughout the day than the norm, and the marina island is always packed with a party barge or two in full effect.
This past Friday, I had the pleasure of attending the our church’s last day of vacation bible school.
My wife, as well as a number of volunteers, had faithfully served throughout the week in various capacities.
Across the United States, and likely throughout the world, Vacation Bible School is one of those events that kicks off summer in a special way.
This past weekend was another fun filled weekend for the House of Brown. We ventured downtown to attend Bubblepalooza!, presented by The Long Center and HEB, on the City Terrace at The Long Center.
I didn’t really know what to expect or how our two boys would respond (our little girl is only 11 months and just goes with the flow for now). Fortunately, Bubblepalooza! was a hit.
Austin is always bumping and jumping with a host of events.
And don’t think that it being Memorial Day weekend would lessen the list of events around the great ATX.
Speaking of Memorial Day, I hope you and yours remember those who greatly sacrificed their lives so that we could enjoy the freedom to live in a free land.
I’m grateful for the many family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors who answered the call to serve their country and fellow man.
We didn’t do much per se, but we did support friends participating in Austin’s CapTex Triathlon held at Auditorium Shores in Downtown Austin across from what was once RunTex.com (now defunct).
