Lil G got all prettied up and we took off for Wimberley out in the Hill Country to meet my parents for lunch, it's only about a 25 minute drive.

here's my pretty Lil G ....before she had one real lousy margarita made by a bartender trainee



here's Lil G w/ her boyfriend



here's me and my mom...her name is Dolly because she's so sweet!



Spanish Daggers in bloom



Looking down towards Wimberley in the Blanco River Valley





had a great time w/ mom and dad, but we had to leave them and go load up the dogs for a swim in the San Marcos River next

Looks like he needs to be wearing a tie

I remember when I cut mine. Felt weird for a long time. That was in August of 2000, for a job interview.

We went to brunch this morning up in Estes Park. Didn't take a lot of pictures but here's a few.




On the way home we saw a herd of big horn sheep. They are pretty cool to watch when they go up the mountain! Sarah took this one. Someone honked their horn and scared them and they started running!

when we made it home from Wimberley, I told the kids we were goin to the river....they got quite excited because they love the river



there were alot of people at Rio Vista dam today, most were there for a kayak competition







the recent rains have the San Marcos springs pumpin out alot of water, toobin season looks good for the next few months



Kendo reaaly likes swimmin



here's some local kids swingin out into the water



I'm sure ginger or Manitou coulda taken a better picture of the Bald Cypress roots along the bank









after a while, the kids were tired but happy and we decided to head back home for a nap



I love this town!!!

Great photos and thanks for sharing your day. From lunch with your mom to the San Marcos, what a great glimpse at your part of the world!

Aaahhh, the texas Blue Bonnets, I even saw them in person just over a week ago. My best friend & I did a road trip, Winnipeg to Houston (Sorry Bumper, her car worked amazing & cheap on gas too) . The beauty of Southern Oklahoma & Texas was amazing. We took Highway 6 from Waco to Hempstead, saw blue bonnets, Indian paintbrush & clover all flowering along the way. Was absolutely gorgeous. Gorgeous, gorgeous country y'all.
