Here are some pics from the Brewer's and Elkins visit to Dallas. We had a great time.
The little boys love their Uncle Ben
The Cutest thing was to see the little guys play with Uncle Ben's Wii. They played Bowling all night and just thought it was the coolest thing. Check out Nathan and Conner in action.
Kath and Dave brought a kiddie pool we put in the backyard for them. They loved the pool and Dave didnt mind cooling off a bit from the August heat!
So the verdict is in... I made a tender, delicious brisket this weekend! The 11 pounder "with the fat" was a success. What did Emeril used to say, "Pork fat rules".... well in my case, "With the Fat Works"! The fam loved it and I'm thinking considering a few nicknames for my smoker skills... Mrs. Pitboss, Lindsey's Smokehouse, or the Queen of Mesquite... has not been determined yet, any suggestions are welcome.

We took a family trip to the Dallas Arboretum. Ben and i had never been and for as much yardwork as we've done in our lifetimes so far, its a shame we've never gone here. We loved it and i cant wait to go during the fall.
The Elkins family... the boys loved running around the Arboretum. Just what the doctor ordered to wear them out before their naps.
