We had so much fun visiting with our friends, Katherine and Tarik over the holidays. It was the first time they met Avienne, and she was justifiably smitten by them. For us, it was nice to have a reason to get out and about town, which we sometimes forget to do now that we have a slightly different routine and an extra person (with a crazy sleeping schedule) to consider. Thankfully, Avienne is usually happy to indulge us on our outings by being such a trooper while we hang out or have a meal.
Apart from Gui's family, we seldom have visitors hailing all the way from France, so having our friends in town was a pretty sweet treat. While they were here, we managed to make time for a bit of bookstore-browsing, burgers, beer and boardgames, and we even snuck in a trip through the Krispy Kreme drive-thru - something I need to do more often! Hanging out with them this time was quite the different adventure from our last jaunt together in Rome, but I have to say, I think we all had just as much fun this time around in good ol' Austin, Texas as we did back in Italy.
