The Countdown…6 days left

With summer coming to and end {much faster than we want}, life at the Roark residence has returned to some normalcy with busy weekends.

This weekend was no exception! Of course it started off with some football {first scrimmage of the season}, then some quality time together and a night out in Fort Worth. I’m so glad it rained and cooled everything off enough to make it nice enough to enjoy the outside air.

Sunday, we began preparing for the week ahead and drove out to have lunch with some of my family. We just received our wedding album {the flawed version} and enjoyed showing it off to everyone during out long wait for a table. Afterwards, we went out to visit one of my college roommates and her husband as they were in town from Cali. It was so much fun to see them again. {I wish they lived closer}.

On our drive back home, we made a failed attempt to redeem a¬†Smoothie King daily deal. Since Eric didn’t read the fine print before buying, there are only two locations in the area we can use it. Of course, they were both closed by the time we got there. Guess we’ll have to make another trip this weekend to use it!

Finally, we stopped by the store and picked up our groceries for the next couple of weeks. Usually, I do this alone while Eric is busy at home or work. I really wanted to show him how I shop so he could see what goes into it. He was a great help {even though I lost him in the store a few times}. We ended up with some great stuff, but I might rethink taking him again. {Yes, I did see those Combos you snuck in while I wasn’t looking}

After all that, we forgot to take pictures to share, but hope to do better next time.

Sweet Summer Time

It’s starting to get to 100 degrees most every day now, but when the sun goes down it cools off enough to get out and enjoy some of the fun festivals in Dallas. In the past couple of weeks, we have gone to Taste of Dallas, Shakespeare in the Park, and a few Ranger’s games.

Here are a few photos of our adventures!

We took the train downtown and met some interesting persons.

Met up with Daniel and Alida again!

We tried lots of good food from around the area.

Overall, it was a nice night to be out. We even ran into a few other people we knew. It really is a small place.

I took some more pictures on my phone, but cannot figure out how to get them off. That’s the trouble with new phones. It’s always a learning game… Hopefully, I’ll remember to take my camera with me more often.

Happy Summer!
