St. Paddy's Day 2011

This year for St. Patrick's Day Crys, Michelle, Matt, Corrie and I did the 5K. I was doing just fine until I hit the 2nd mile and then I was struggling. I could blame it on my music cutting out or the fact that my arm band kept coming off, but I think I'm getting just plain OLD!

The silver lining is that Crys and I did accomplish our goal (beating last year's time). We had over 32 minutes last year and this year we were at 29:45, pretty exciting!!

Bryan sat this one out and decided to get us a sweet spot for the parade instead. That was probably wise since he was excited about the green beer and they didn't have any along the run this year.

We were able to meet up with Collin & Jenna and Johnny & Josh. Jenna was a champ and we were so impressed with her!

We had some lovely homemade shirts this year made by yours truly. I did Bryan, Crystal's and my shirt with the amateur sketch.

For those of you that are unaware of the greatness you can catch up here:

Pistol's 28th birthday

Crystal's birthday was such a blast this year. We were able to spend pretty much the whole day together. It was so great that Brooke and Freeland were in town to cerebrate with us too!!

We started out at the Cross Timbers Winery in Grapevine

Im pretty sure Bryan is eating some cheese and crackers here in this one...hah

This was my favorite winery that we went to. It was so cute in the back. They had a big barn that hosts weddings and a cute courtyard too!

Then we went to Homestead to meet Brooke

This place was a little weird. The people were freaky there. They were talking about "Maude" the ghost that lived there. That was enough for us to wrap it up and get out of there as soon as we could.

The best part was that Crys was able write on the ceiling (with the help/height of Bryan)

Then we stopped off at Farina's. It was more of a restaurant that offered tastings. Definitely some good wine though!

Then we went back to the house to meet Freeland for appetizers, a little more wine and yummy cake!!

Freeland spending some time with Liz


Bryan set up the fire pit for us to enjoy. I finally got a decnt picture of us four while holding the camera.

All in all it was a wonderful day! It was great to be with my best friends and of course Dr. Bryan and Dr. Freeland! We got to have some great wine and get our dougie on!

Happy Birthday Cryssie....
