He's 36

The birthday man!
This handsome man turned 36 the other day (July 18)!  We planned for a great day of antiquing, exploring, and celebrating Joseph!  We started our day with lunch at Chilli's, then we drove into Dallas to check out a great antique store, see more about the antique store HERE.
Downtown Waxahachie
We like to explore the outskirts of Dallas and see if any of the small towns feel like a place we could call home.  The plan is to live close to Dallas but far enough outside of the city to homestead again.  After antiquing we explored south of Dallas and fell in love with a few of the cities we drove through!  Waxahachie was awesome!  The historical downtown was clean and so cute and the historical neighborhood felt like Center Street in Logan Utah.  The homes were absolutely beautiful!
Near Ennis
We kept driving south towards Ennis Texas, and we hit the mother load of little farming communities.  We saw several fields of sunflowers, corn, sugar cane, and even cotton!  We even saw a homestead with free range chickens, turkeys, and ducks! 
Beautiful Rainbow
We drove under this beautiful rainbow!  We were happy to find the kind of lifestyle Joseph and I believe in and long for.
The sun began do set so we headed home; with the sun setting behind the city skyline, I felt lucky to have just driven through the most beautiful country, and then drive home through this beautiful city!
Personal birthday cake!
When we got home I sang the happy birthday song to Joseph and we ate Hostess Cupcakes together!
Rodrigo y Gabriela Concert!
 Friday night (July 19), we headed to the AT&T Performing Arts Center to see Rodrigo y Gabriela,
5th floor view.
The fifth floor of the Performing Arts Center had balconys with spectacular views of the city.  It was fun to hang out there waiting for the show to start.
We're blue!
We had a bit of fun being blue while waiting for the show to begin!
Rodrigo y Gabriela were absolutely amazing!  I was in awe at their talent and even cried after a few of their songs; it was hard to believe that what I was listening to was real.

We had a blast celebrating Joseph's birthday and can't wait to do it again next year!
