This week was a short week for me at work. Had some meetings and then was off Wednesday to Friday. Reason for the vacation? South by SouthWest (SXSW). For more information about what SXSW is, click here. The following post will hopefully give you an idea of what the music portion of SXSW was for a first time attendee (me).
SXSW is held in Austin, TX, so a quick trip for me from DFW. I got to go with Melanie and Crystal Hartman. Two of the most informed people I know concerning new bands coming out and what is going on with the music scene. I admit that I have been out of it for a while and rely on these two people to keep me up to date. If you ever look at what I have on my iPhone, you can tell. So we drove down to Austin on Thursday. We drove directly to the Yard Dog just in time to see Japandroids.

So let me see……Last week Kylie and I were invited to go to the Fort Worth Zoo with my parents and 2 of my nieces. I took a lot of pictures and you can see them on my flickr account. Instead of posting them here, you can click the picture below to view all of them. I was trying out a new filter for my camera so let me know how they look.

My parents invited Kylie and I to the Zoo. We had a great time until she had to go to the bathroom. So we ran to the other side of the Zoo to get to the restrooms. Got into the stall and there is no toilet paper, no paper towels, pee all over the seat and a crying girl that has to go. So I pulled her pants down and held her over the seat. But the pee just went all over her underwear and all over her pants. Did I mention that there was not toilet paper. She didn’t want to put her underwear back on cause they were wet. So I did what any papa would do. I took out my knife and cut her underwear off of her. There was no way I was going to take her shoes and her pants off in that bathroom. Plus I was not going to walk around with her wet underwear. So I cut them off and threw them away. But she still had pee on her pants so we just walked around until they dried. And for future reference, cotton candy can make any child forget that they have pee on their pants.
Really having issues coming up with things to post week after week. Starting to get harder to remind myself to take pictures. Need a better way to remember everything that has happened.
Kylie was sick again for most of last week. Crystal stayed home with her on Wednesday and Thursday, and I stayed home with her on Friday. Still don’t know what is causing all of these fevers. Although we did start taking her temp three times a day and keeping track of them to see if we can find a pattern.

So the last week in February. We were not too busy during the week, but the weekend was.
Kylie is enrolled in a class in school called Flips for Fun. They come every Monday and teach the kids tumbling stuff. They had their first parents show Saturday morning. Here are some pictures Rebeca took for me while I filmed. Continue reading “Week 9 of 2010”
