As I promised!!!












And here it is....the update from our Memorial Day weekend in Fred!!! Fred seems to be the only thing I blog about, so I will try to get better and post more frequently! Don't hold me too accountable to that :)

Kim and I drove down with Bleu Belle and Jeter (in her car, which was interesting) Friday after work. We finally got to Fred around 9:30pm and were so anxious to see the cabin. Mom, Dad and Honey greeted us, gave a tour, we chatted for a bit and then crashed. Ryan was at the deer lease and drove over Saturday morning to hang the rest of the weekend.

Saturday was a little rainy, so the girls went into town to do some shopping...you know we always have to get that in!! Mom cooked us a big hearty meal for lunch and we just hung out the rest of the afternoon. Dad and Ryan were burning some brush piles and tending to the fires so they wouldn't get out of control. That night we decided to go Dancin' in Luckenbach. Willie Nelson's daughter, Paula Nelson, was performing and she was really great!

Sunday was our work day out on the ranch. Mom had started laying a stone rock path from the side porch on the cabin to the back porch, and wanted to make it wrap all the way around to the front porch. So, we all put on our boots and gloves, loaded up the mule and tractor with rocks and worked the puzzle until it was finished!! It looks so great now!! After our long day of labor, we went into town to grab a bite to eat before the Bankers and Garners (neighbors) came over for a fun evening. We hung out on the porch, had snacks and drinks, played washers and entertained the dogs.

It really was a fabulous weekend...there's just something about Fredericksburg that we can't get enough of!!!!

Memorial Day Weekend in Fred!

Today after work, Kim and I are heading down to Fredericksburg to spend the long 3 day weekend out on the ranch. Did I mention that I love 3 day weekends and I think we should have them every week????? The cabin is finally done and I am so excited to see the finished product. Its extremely cute, cozy, not very big, but its a place we can call home out there and we LOVE it. My parents have been there all week, moving the furniture in and getting it all set. We have big plans to work on the land, host the Inaugural Memorial Day Washer Tournament, roast marshmallows over the fire pit and so much more!!! I promise to post again with pics from the weekend...and it won't take 3 months!! HA!!
