I had a super busy, yet completely wonderful weekend. I didn’t get to sleep late or nap (the entire purpose of the weekend), but it was worth it. On Friday night, my sister and I met my dad in Round Rock to watch the local minor league.
Ate a hot dog, enjoyed some snow cones, had a fun time. On Saturday, we ran all over town and then took my parents on one of the Austin bat watching tours as part of my mom’s Mother’s Day gift. We went with Capital Cruises and the boat left about an hour before sunset which gave us a good amount of time to cruise around and hear some of the history of the lake. It was a nice time.
Unfortunately, the bats weren’t really in the mood to perform, so they didn’t have as spectacular an exit as anticipated. Apparently, the show is better in the hotter and dryer months.
Oh well, the scenery was great.
On Sunday morning we spent five hours waiting for barbecue, but that’s a post for another day. In the afternoon my sister and I watched Maleficent. It was MAGNIFICENT. I just can’t even explain it. I loved the story, I loved Angelina, I loved EVERYTHING. It was so female focused and there was so much outside of the hunt for true love. Although, if they did need a new title, I think it could just as easily gone with “He Brought This Upon Himself” or “Fat Babies Are Irresistible.” It’s a great lesson in treating people with decency. I just want to watch it over and over again. I cannot recommend it enough. It was more spectacular than I could have ever imagined.
It was nice to have some joy in my life before the horror that was the last ten minutes of Game of Thrones.
That was so march harder to see than it was to read. Also, it’s about damn time Sansa has black hair. I’m not sure the point of it now, but FINALLY.
