We skiied for possibly the last time this season at the lake this weekend. The lake level is at an all time low and Karl was able to stand in the ski cove we normally ski in. It was very strange.

My Ireland pictures are all uploaded and ready to view! I widdled them down as much as I could (from 1600!) to 970 total in the slideshow. So...grab a glass of wine and get ready for a show ;) I'm still labeling them and having fun reliving the trip as I go. What an amazing trip.

I have also uploaded all my London pictures some of which Riane will most likely be annoyed I'm posting of her but they were too cute to leave out and that's what big sisters are for right? :) I miss you Ri Ri and had so much fun exploring London with you!

For your listening pleasure...

Haha. I have added some new songs to our playlist below. After hearing so many different bands at ACL it inspired me to update it...a little. Now, rest assured, there will always be the random 70's and 80's songs, (You can call me Al, etc.) but in between I will add some newer favs. I am on a Neko Case kick recently...can you tell? Also, in case you want to do other things on your computer but still listen to my playlist, you can click the "pop out" feature so you can play it on your desktop. Ok, back to working on pics. Thanks for visiting and give us a holler!

ACL Festival

It was go go go the second I got back into the states since ACL festival started the next day. (Austin City Limits music fest) Taylor and some of her friends came up and we went all three days....whew...still recovering. The heat wasn't near as bad as the first year we went when it was 108 degrees out (end of Sept?!) But, it was still hot during the day. The lineup was great this year and the 3 day pass was worth it to me just to see my favorite- Neko Case. In case you can't tell by all the songs of hers I have playing below on the website, she is one of my all time favorites :) Our other favorites were John Fogherty, who actually played some old CCR songs. Band of Horses, CSS, Tegan & Sara (another recent fav), G. Love, Mates of State, Robert Plant, The Raconteurs, Robert Earl Keen, Blues Traveler, Slightly Stoopid...sooo many good bands!

And, no, I didn't take this aerial shot from my private helicopter. I just found this pic online and thought it was cool to show how awesome Zilker Park is with the Austin skyline in the background. It was way more packed than this on Saturday and Sunday.

I went into hibernation mode Monday after being at the festival all weekend and still recovering from jet lag. But, I'm back to normal now and in the process of uploading all my trip pictures to post....stay tuned!
