I Love Texas!!!

Just back from another fun and fast trip to Texas for Spring Break! Ian and I flew to Austin and Mom and Dad picked us up. Of course we went straight to the Roadhouse in Bastrop....Most awesome burger and sweet potato fries ever!

Lots of time at the park in Castlegate where Mom and Dad live, playing basketball, swinging on the monkey bars and walking. Ian was in heaven..

We went to Van Vleck on Friday and Ian was thrilled to get to ride and drive the golf cart. He did really good too, also made fast friends with the cat next door.

Took our usual family picture with Buddy and Wanda...we love spending time with them, and miss them so much in between visits. Also got to eat a King Buffet again....the shrimp was awesome!

On Saturday, we went to the Texas Aggies Softball game against Missouri...unfortunately they lost, but Ian enjoyed the close game and the 4 homers hit by the Lady Aggies! He also really liked the peanuts, he must of since he ate a whole bag almost all by himself!

What trip would be complete without a trip to Brenham and the Blue Bell Creamery for some Ice Creme! Here is Ian in his factory hat.

Leah was so jealous, but this year the blue bonnets were plentiful and so beautiful! I made Ian sit in this field for pictures...it smelled so good there.

I am so blessed to spend time with my still very active parents. They are so generous to us and we are so grateful to have them in our lives....

Love you Mom and Dad,
