With my husband Doug, celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary while on vacation in Texas
If you happened to notice that my blogging has been a bit sparse in the past couple of weeks, you'd be right! I was gone for two weeks to one of the hottest, driest places in the country--central Texas, the Austin area.
No matter what the weather is, that area draws me like a magnet because there are a lot of people I love there--including my two sons and daughter-in-law, my two little grandsons, my mother, my sister and her family, and my brother's family (he is currently out of the country.)
While there, my husband and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary surrounded by loved ones. We ate at an amazing BBQ place called The Salt Lick, then had cake and ice cream at my mom's house.
I thought I'd share a few pics from our visit to the Lone Star State--one of my favorite places in the world!
My daughter Elizabeth (l) and niece Katie at the Hula Hut in Austin--AWESOME restaurant!
My wonderful sister Lisa and her husband David with Doug and me at The Salt Lick. My sisters are my best friends!
Can you stand another foodie pic? This was my stuffed avocado at The Hula Hut in Austin--words fail to adequately describe its scrumptuosness!
My son Justin and his nephew, my little grandson Payton--they're great buddies!
My husband with our precious little grandsons, Josiah and Payton. They. Are. My. HEART.
