memorial day in dallas

Nothing kicks the unofficial summer off right like Memorial Day weekend. I just spent the past 4 days in Dallas where the weather was 85 degrees and sunny- quite a change from San Francisco this time of year! The trip was a great opportunity to spend time with Derek's family, whom I only see about once or twice a year if I'm lucky. There was a whole lot of relaxing by the pool, great southern barbecuing, margaritas and family play-time. It was sad to leave at the end of the weekend but we're hoping to make this mini-getaway a tradition for every Memorial Day.

The whole Nelson clan in the hot tub. (That's Derek's brother Kyle and sister-in-law Jessica on the left).

More pool time...

Derek got seriously into building Legos with Zander. Yes, that's a scene from Star Wars on the left.
