Catching Up ... Texas Trip

So, after the big bike ride, we headed from Austin to Fort Worth to get our "three bags full" of friends and family who we miss like seriously crazy! I love how God knows just what you need at just the time you need it. He's always awesome like that. We also have to stock up on our favorite foods that aren't available in Mississippi and eat TONS of Mexican food and I don't even need to say why that's a fact! :) Sorry Mississippi and Louisiana, but you can't cook Mexican. Just saying. (To be fair, however, you've got gumbo in the bag!) Anywho. We also celebrated the  big girls birthday while we were on our seriously short whirlwind tour. More on that next post ...

In route to FW, we stopped in Belton to get squeezes from the Wilson family. Here are Madison, Tory, and Peyton. They are all growing into such beautiful girls!
This is my sweet friend, Missy. Such a blessing she is!

Absolutely cannot miss seeing "Big Grannie!" She's 95 years young and her love for and service to the Lord is an incredible legacy for her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren!

Brianne was holding her hand, so cute!

Yep, I'm her favorite! But, shhhh, don't tell my cousins or my sister! :) Okay, I might have some competition, however, cause she asked immediately where Brian was (working). Hmmmpf!!

We always have the blessing of staying at the "Herrold Hotell" when we are in FW. Our kids get their play time in and then some ... so much energy and so.much.fun!

We so miss having a trampoline and, well ,we miss having a yard, for that matter. God's got that planned for the future, for sure. But, in the meantime, there was much jumping and laughing on this one!
