Happy Birthday America!

Over the Holiday weekend Josh and I traveled to The Colony to visit my parents. We arrived Friday around noon just in time to go grab some lunch at a new restaurant, Palio’s. That afternoon we just hung out, there were many storms that passed through due to Hurricane Alex. Mom had blessed us (Some would say punished) with a home cooked meal, Pork Chops in the Crock Pot. (She made it especially for dad although he never ate any). Dad’s flight was re-routed to Oklahoma City, so he didn’t arrive home till close to 9:45pm, and Karl arrived shortly after that. Then it was off to bed for all of us!

Saturday we all worked on a top secret Christmas project. Mom and Dad will be hosting the Kuklenz Christmas at their home this year. I can’t wait, it seems like it has been many years since I have been able to attend the Kuklenz Christmas festivities.

Sunday we went to church, came home and made some brunch and the girls headed off to the Allen outlet mall, while Karl practiced driving the Mustang (he is supposed to get his Manual Camero in the next couple months) and Josh and Dad trimmed the Palm Trees. That evening we grilled some burgers and had a 4th of July feast.

Monday morning, Josh and Dad (mostly Josh) decided it would be a good idea to go rent a trailer and finally finish off the retaining wall by inserting the pea gravel. Check out Mom’s blog for pictures: www.the-kuklenz-family.blogspot.com. Once they finished, Josh got cleaned up and we hit the road back to Houston.
