Parking Ticket

Hey everybody! Well we made it back safe from Austin! We had a great time! We got to stay with a very close friend of mine growing up! Her and her husband and kids live there while he is going to University of Texas. We spent the night with them Saturday night and went to church the next morning with them (and it was a great service)! And then out to eat lunch and then back to their house for dessert! Then we went to the Hotel, where the kids were excited about swimming in the pool! Well little did we know but the hotel is doing renovations and the pool was included in that! :( So they sent us down the road to swim in another hotels pool! How weird is that!? And we told them that they needed to post that on their website about the renovations, so they gave us breakfast vouchers for the next morning! But we got up too late and we didn't get to use them!
Then we went Monday morning to the UT tennis courts and couldn't find a place to park anywhere....well that is before we found a great little parking lot right behind the courts! We knew there was a 50/50 chance on getting a ticket, but we were willing to risk it! We didn't want to drive 4 hrs to watch them play and then be late! They ended up losing their match, but they really did great! The team that beat them, ended up winning State!
So we go out to the truck and find a $25.00 ticket! So I guess we just paid for really expensive parking! :)
So we made it home for Chace's baseball game and Autumn was nominated for All-Star Softball, so she had to go try-out for that! We found out today that she made it! We are so proud of her! :) She didn't have a real good coach this year, so we are very happy with this All-Star coach! I think he will teach her alot! :)
We did our Business taxes with our CPA today and we have to drop our personal taxes off tomorrow with our other tax guy! So I hope they get those done soon! Our business has really grown, so our taxes have been complicated this year, but now I have a CPA taking care of most of the bookkeeping, so it will be alot better next tax season! Thank you Jesus! :)
So anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that I am still here! And I hope to craft some tomorrow!
There is still time to play in the EBTKS challenge! We are using envelopes on a project and the prize is great! So stop by and play along with us! :)

Have a Blessed night!
