Jeremy decided that the family needed to try Babes Chicken. What a neat place- very, um, different- think strange Western meets Kentucky Fried Chicken, only with better sides- loved the mashed potatoes and gravy, creamed corn, and green beans.

We have new neighbors that moved in next to us. One of them is a 4 year old boy named Austin. Bella, Victoria, and Austin have been playing together about every other day. Yesterday Austin told Bella that he was going to marry her, but first he had to ask if it was okay with his other girlfriend. I love listening to them.
We went to a neighborhood block party on National Night Out. It was 110 degrees outside! They set up a kiddie pool for the kids- they added some bags of ice to the water. I was so hot beads of sweat kept running down my back and I had a constant headache. I actually stuck my feet in the kiddie pool at one time to cool down. It was insane! But well worth it- we got to meet some cool, new neighbors and visit with the old ones, while complaining about the heat. This has been one of the hottest summers in Dallas history. We almost tied with the most consecutive days of over 100 degree heat-(45, I believe), came shy of the record by 2 days- when we finally got a much needed rain storm; then the next day it was up in the 100s again.
