Hello B! Goodbye Tree










On wednesday we welcomed mary beth back from her study abroad adventures in Florence, Italy. It was so good to see her and to get to talk to her face to face. I told Jayden that we were going to see "aunt B" on wednesday when he woke up and all day he said "B" with a question mark in his voice - wondering where she was. We finally got to see her that afternoon at the airport and then all went for a family dinner at Chuy's afterwards. It was a great reunion!
This friday and saturday we had our backyard tree cut down to get the backyard ready for the construction that should start this week. It was bittersweet. Sad to see this beautiful tree go, but exciting because it meant that the construction is about to start. I tried to capture some of what it looked like - but pictures and words can not capture the massiveness of the tree and the huge project that it was to get this tree down.
