Nola's Brit Bat

Nola received her Hebrew name at a baby naming ceremony hosted by Luvie and Grandpa. 

After the ceremony there was, of course, a huge feast and lots of goofing around!

Water Water Everywhere

The only way to keep cool in the summer in Texas is to get wet.
Here are some of our favorite ways to beat the heat!

Come Fly With Theo and Nola

Theo and Nola invited friends and family to the Lipstein Airport for some flying fun!
Everyone decorated and flew balsa gliders and enjoyed in-flight meals and cocktails.

Livin' La Vida Matthews

We went to San Antonio for a weekend stay at the Matthews' compound. As you can see, it was filled with industrious work at the table, many costume changes, and a rocking dance party. Thanks, N, G, E, L, and H for a fabulous time!

Mastering the BBQ

Matt got a grill as an early birthday present, and we've had fun breaking it in. 
Both kids love ribs, it turns out.

Sometimes you have S'mores Pie for dessert.


Inaugural rack of ribs


We went on our first ever family camping trip! It was organized by some friends at a 100 year old dance hall in the Hill Country. Friendly people, dogs, a huge potluck supper, BBQ, and swing music made for the prefect combination of a great weekend.
