Fred...part deux

After surviving the pooping pigeons of San Antonio, we headed to Fredericksburg. Our friends, Jason & Kristie, met us there for the weekend. Have I defined "us" yet?

The boys....Jason, Chuck, Chad and John.

The sexy bitches....Sarah, Melissa and me. HI!
(The above 2 pictures were in San Antonio so Jason & Kristi are not pictured. Yes, there were 2 Jason's that weekend. Keep up.)

We were staying at the Almost Home Guest House. This is a house owned by some friends of mine and we stay there any time we head to Fredericksburg. Once we got there and unloaded everything, we opened up the bar. After boozing it up for a little while, we headed to Hondo's for some dinner. Here's a photo of our party of 9.

Then we headed back to the house because, well, booze was free at the house. The ladies staying inside and talked (and knitted) while the boys got hot in the hot tub.

The next morning after breakfast, we headed to Comfort, TX to our first winery, Singing Waters. It was a lovely winery and the people there were so friendly and personable. After our tasting, we all got a glass of our favorite wine and headed out back to enjoy it. Our party of 9 turned into 11 because Sarah's sister, Emily, and her husband, Jeremy, joined us on Saturday. Here we are enjoying our wine. The 2 Jason's are not paying attention in this photo.

After lunch, we went to another winery that we don't really want to talk about because they weren't as nice. Then after that one we came back to town and hit a wine bar. Blurry photo, I know. I need a new camera.

This picture proves that Chad was on the trip with us......

Saturday was a long day and I think we were all a little tired that evening. We had a nice dinner at a cafe close to the house then we just hung out for the rest of the evening. We headed home on Sunday. We had a great time. Chad is getting a little spoiled with trips for his birthday. Last year we were in Vegas and now Fredericksburg. Wonder where we will be next year for his birthday as we say goodbye to his 30s..........

That Bird is Crazy....

Fredericksburg...Part I.

Our first stop on our Fredericksburg trip was lunch in San Antonio on the river. You know what they have there??? A lot of??? Pigeons. Bert likes them....Sarah does not. There was a table next to us that was 95% kids and they were feeding them and then chasing them away. Chasing them towards Sarah, who would make the most precious and amusing squeal any time one would come her way. What is your fear anytime a bird comes near you?? Especially OVER you?? Here are a few quotes from lunch....enjoy...

  • I just don't want to get pooped on.
  • The dookey just fell.
  • Is he pooping???!!!
And here is a quote from just moments ago...

  • You just squealed so loud my cup vibrated in my hand.

Lost Pines

Chad and I took the bugs to the Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop for an overnight getaway. We spent the day in the pool and floating on the lazy river. The Doodlebug thoroughly enjoyed the water slide. I lost count of how many times he went down.

Here is a picture of the Ladybug in the car on the way there. Have you ever seen anyone cooler?

The bugs by a lake.

Me and the bugs....same lake.
The Doodlebug wanted a lollipop. The Ladybug and I opted for some Dippin' Dots.

Bed time.....
There is a very hilly, winding road that leads from the main highway to the resort. Along the way, there are little areas along the road where you can pull over and see things. At one of those pull over areas, we saw 2 deer. Then there was another one that was nothing but weeds. It was there where my bad mom moment in the car occurred. The bad mom moment conversation follows:
Me: I don't know why they have this as a pull over area. You can't see shit.
Doodlebug: Who is shit?

Singing in the Rain

So it's been raining here a little lately. Just a tad. Tuesday night, the Ladybug wanted to go exploring the rain. She has no fear.

And she got soaking wet.

The Doodlebug stayed dry. He wanted no part of the rain exploration.
