Texas trip…

Last weekend, my family traveled to Marble Falls, Texas, for a family friend’s wedding. I didn’t take many pictures at the wedding, but the road trip down there with Ryan and Lindsay (brother and sister-in-law) was lots of fun and we saw some fun sights.

Here, Ryan was attempting to take a picture of the bridge: DSCI0138

This was a creepy huge hotel looking structure that we decided was a mental hospital 60 years ago and was now a ghost house:

In Windhorst, TX…when Linz was getting sick of Ryan and I singing, “Deep in the heeeeaaarrrrttt of Texas!!”:

Hamilton, TX… home of pretty wall hangings and tricked-out golf carts:

This was only one of three things we saw on a post (or a stick as Linz would have said). So this was the cow on a post. We had already seen a horse on a stick and a truck on a stick, I think:DSCI0143

But the best part of the trip down was visiting Dublin, TDSCI0159X, “Home of Dr. Pepper”.  I had been there before, but it was a treat to get to see it again and tour the plant. They were also celebrating their 118th birthday the next day so they were getting ready for all of the festivities:

Inside the Dr. Pepper museum:

However, the highlight of the trip was obviously seeing roadkill…although only 6 armadillos were sighted. So this is as close as I could get to getting a picture of roadkill…obviously a big bird:

The whole wedding weekend was very fun. We spent most all of Friday and Saturday on the lake, rode around on the boat and tubed, and got kinda burnt…not because of lack of sunscreen though… I was lathering it on! The wedding was beautiful on the lake and it was fun to see lots of old friends.
