We went on a one week vacation back to South West Texas(Fort Davis) to be specific and it was very well worth the drive. This is where my hubby and i first lived when we got married, had our first child and had alot of life’s lessons as well.
We used to have a love/hate relationship with this place given the fact that it was a very quiet but some times too quiet of a place for a young married couple(both in our early 20s), beautiful mountains but boy did we get to see some rattle snakes then!!, cute little small town grocery stores with a selection that pushed us into driving three hours away for groceries and then of course diapers once the little one came along. Now don’t get me wrong because am not complaining about how bad this place was. It was beautiful and still is but it was a give and take kinda of situation.
Our very good friend Steve/papa to our kids was awesome!. We have known Steve for year(9 years for my hubby and 7 years for me) and to us he is the perfect description of true friendship. We can always count on Steve. And he is very patient, gentle and kind to the kids. They pretty much did not want to leave Papa Steve’s house(We stayed with him the entire time)
Also got to see two of my very favorite friends. Vero….it was good seeing you and your little girl and Betty, am thankful to have you for a friend. Thank you again for the delicious South African dinner and of course the kids’ gifts and our snacking goodies. Love the home made chocolate…yum. Can’t wait to taste the watermelon jam and the relish. OK am saying too much…you just have to come visit us so i can go on and on about all the goodies
Despite going back memory lane, we got some very much needed rest and relaxation. Life has been super crazy lately(and of course the noise that comes with it…..hate that) so it was really nice to just take walks in the woods, have no cell reception and get to enjoy my hubby and kids at a very slow pace for a couple of days.
KIDS LOVED IT, DADDY LOVED IT AND IT WAS DEFINITELY MAMA APPROVED!!!!
