Not the "Champagne Supernova", British pop band of the 90s, Oasis, but a Texas Oasis away from the sun and oppressive heat. Last week we went with friends to Krause Springs and felt like we'd left Tx and entered a lush, green, wet, ferny, semi-tropical wonderland. These are adjectives that are rarely, if ever, used to describe central Texas. The water was just cold enough to make it a little tough to get in at first, but refreshing and lovely once you got your breath back. Big E and the older girls loved the rope swing and Little A loved jumping in and almost drowning (I mean, "swimming") over and over again. I'm not sure how he does it, but somehow he manges to get where he's going with his little face barely breaking the surface of the water. He looks on the verge of catastrophe at all times.

We had a lovely dinner at Angel's on the way home where I saw deep-fried macaroni and cheese for the first time. You really can fry anything.
