We are having some limited success with our garden. The peas are coming up nicely, one okra seed we planted outside has come up, and a handful of the other inside seedlings appear to be taking root outside. There have been some failures but we may yet get something out of it all.

This is Nicholas is first try using his new walker. It took him no time at all to figure out how to move all the way across our tiled kitchen. He has always liked to stand up when we hold him, and now we don't have to hold him for him to stand up. We think that it will be as nice for his parents as it is for him.

Monday morning we headed back. We stopped in Lockhart, the BBQ capital of Texas (and hence the world). We had fabulous ribs and brisket at Black's BBQ. They were the best ribs we have had in Texas so far. You can see Meleece and Jake who carpooled with us. We had a full car. They brought one small bag and the rest of the car was filled with Nicholas's stuff.
Next, we toured the state capital in Austin. Nicholas figured out how to make a great new noise on the trip. It was something between a growl, clearing his throat, and a cough. He decided to practice it non-stop during the guided tour of the capital. Joseph put his hat over his head and that made his stop for about a minute while he tried to figure out why it was suddenly dark.
