Deep in the heart of Texas

Ronny and I had the opportunity to visit his grandma in College Station, Texas this past weekend. We had a great time – she made some great tasting food (grandmas are good at that!), saw some fun sites and learned some new things about Texas (like did you know Texas was its own country for almost 10 years?!).

One of the best parts of Texas…stars are everywhere.DSC00181

This was the greenest thing we saw in Texas: a turf farm.DSC00169

Grandma took us to Independence, TX, where there is a historic church and beautiful antique rose emporium garden.

Then we went to Washington-on-the-Brazos – the birthplace and original capitol of Texas.DSC00217

We ate lunch at this great little place in the adorable town of Brenham, TX, then ate some Blue Bell ice cream – made right there in town! Ronny just couldn’t get away from his work and decided to judge the dairy cow.DSC00220DSC00225

We had such a great time with you, Grandma Pope! Thanks for treating us to a fun weekend and I’m glad we could help you finish some projects. See you again soon!
