June Houston Getaway

We started our summer with a trip to see our favorites-Maggie, Jimmy, and Lydia in Spring. We had fun relaxing at their house, learning about Tomball, grown-up fun at the Karbach Brewery and Menil Art Collection, plus a day trip to Galveston for Matt and me. We also got to hear Maggie's special icon info lecture at church, way to go! See you again soon Abbotts! 
 
Where the Texas revolution ended, impressive right?

House Updates
-New art from local Kat LiBretto at the Allen Arts Festival for the house
