Heading South

Wow, how time flies.  Just a few short weeks ago, we were in Birmingham celebrating Sarah and Jason's wedding and enjoying time with family.  However, the time came that we needed to head to Texas.  We were able to take time to make a stop in Lufkin, to see Keith and Donna.



has an extra RV site


out back of the house.  How great is that!

  Once we arrived and parked, we enjoyed a leisure evening of sitting on the back porch and visiting.

Next morning, we decided to take a drive over to Livingston to visit the


Escapades home office.

Kim showed us around and gave us an extensive tour of the mail room and showed us every step of how the mail is received, processed, checked, double checked, requested, and finally forwarded on the the correct person.  And, just let me tell you, if you use their mail service, your mail is well taken care of from start to finish.

By afternoon, we were back in Lufkin and having an early dinner at Lufkin BBQ, home of the world famous "fried rolls".  Oh, my gosh, those things could be dangerous to one's waistline.  And, as if the fried rolls weren't enough, Donna and I had to try the


fried peach pie.  In order to walk off those rolls, we decided to visit the


Lufkin museum before heading back to the house.

We spent another beautiful evening sitting on the back porch.

By, Wednesday, it was time for us to say, "see you later", and head to Fort Worth.  We were there by a little after noon, settled in, and ready to stay for a couple of weeks.  Of, course, when we are in town, there is always lots to do.

There was


Hockey with Caden.  He is getting really good, now has all of his equipment, and is still taking classes.  He is trying to wait patiently to turn 5 years old, so he can be on a real team, just like


his big brother Andrew.  We can't convince him that at 10 years younger, he will never be on Andrew's team.  But, in the mean time he keeps



Lauren is still enjoying playing



Zachary is playing


fall baseball and is quite an awesome pitcher.  He is also taking hockey lessons.

He celebrated his


11th birthday this month.

Kourtney and Kinley have been practicing for Halloween.  Kourtney is going to be a


Candy Corn Witch and Kinley is a


baby Candy Corn!  And, together they are quite a pair.

Kinley also had her first


taste of cereal.  Kourtney thinks she is way too messy with her eating.

We have enjoyed being home and catching up with all the kids and grandkids, however, we are ready to head South.  So, with the jacks up, the slides in, and the Jeep hooked up, we pulled out of Fort Worth this morning.

We made it to Fredericksburg, in the Texas Hill Country.  We are looking forward to spending a few days here with Garry and Pat and Rod and Deb.

Later this week, we will head to the RGV.
