So, as I mentioned last week, we were in Texas to see family and enjoy some sunshine. We had a wonderful time! The kids loved living the country life for a week, and seeing lots and lots of family members.
I'm in one of those places where so much is going on in my brain that I'm having trouble sharing ANYTHING! Ever been there? I really do hope to write more soon and catch up on things.
Meanwhile, here is a little bit of our time away!
Did you know that central Texas has pockets of Czech and German influence? It's true, as evidenced above. We stopped at this bakery for kolaches. We passed on the pickled pigs feet, however.
We had great visits with family. I love the picture of Walt with his great-grandma. Doesn't she look amazing? Oh, and how do you like our camp site there? Hee hee.
We ate A LOT of good food in Texas, burgers and Mexican food in particular. Yummmmm. Hey look! Vicki's Burger Barn has a Facebook page!
We spent our last night in San Antonio where we took the kids to see the Cradle of Texas Liberty (otherwise known as The Alamo, or the Shrine of Texas Liberty). True story: when John and I were dating, he wanted to bring me to San Antonio to see the Alamo and the River Walk. However, before we could make the trip, he made me refer to The Alamo as the Cradle of Texas Liberty. I've called it such ever since. Texans!!
I don't know what my deal is, but I have developed a real fear during flight over the past few years. I HATE turbulence of any kind. It's all I can do to hold it together while flying and I really wish it wasn't like that for me! I didn't used to be like this and I want to get over it! Lucy, on the other hand, loves all the bumps and jolts. I want to be more like her, as evidenced here:

Over and out!
