I don't particularly mind the summer heat; after growing up in Las Vegas, Austin's hot weather isn't as soul searing as it might be otherwise (don't say something about the humidity; Austin has the perfect amount of humidity, amen). Plus, with a pool at our disposal this year, I think summer will be very lovely.
But I am in no hurry to rush along the beautiful spring weather we're having right now. We've spent the last couple evenings enjoying the outdoors, discussing ad nauseum how ridiculously nice it is.
On Wednesday, a new (quite impressive) farmer's market opened just around the corner from us and so we went by after dinner to check it out. We enjoyed some delicious samples, including sweet potato bread, gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, chicken tikka masala, and some pistachio brownie gelato and then sat under the trees to listen to some live music. Does life get better? (Yes, if you have an entire scoop of gelato instead of a wimpy sample - Ella thinks life would be better if we gave her the spoon to play with before we licked off all the gelato).
And then last night, Bart's office rented a box at our local baseball diamond and we had hamburgers and hotdogs (sadly, not very impressive ones) in the box before heading out to the seats to watch three innings. After that, Ella had had enough sports to last her one evening.
Oh, Austin in the spring. I love you so much.
