~ Road Trip ~

I think I shared the best sunrise picture yesterday but here are a couple more~
When the sky is like this ~ you just know it's going to be a beautiful day....

sorry about the power lines....but look @ the sky and the flags....it was so serene...

I have to keep myself busy in the car otherwise I drive Mister crazy~ I'm not the best passenger. :) We were going to visit Mister's great grandparents in the hill country.

I made his Mammaw a lap blanket on the way~

Isn't it cute? She loved it, too. :)

after a while it's alot of windy roads... but the scenery was gorgeous.

The wisteria was in full bloom but I failed to take any pictures of it but Mister even said 'WOW what is that?' So, we bought a Wisteria vine ( I won't let it get as big as a tree ) @ Home Depot, Sunday.

The azaleas were also blooming...

I loved this house~

Look at those azaleas~


On the way back from our visit....which we enjoyed emensly.

We went through a little town.

Here is " City Hall"

Look @ the fire station.... how charming.

The mercantile shop next door

We stopped at a few little shops....I'll show you what we bought tomorrow. :)

See the cobble stone streets. CA-UTE!

On the way back to our city I kept myself busy ( again ) by putting pictures in photo albums....yes, I'm a multi tasker...lol. Besides what else do you do on a 4 hour drive....I already sang all the songs in my mp3 player. The natives ( Mister & the Genius ) were getting restless....and covering their ears. :)

What that means....I do NOT know...lol.

Then we saw some Bluebonnets....

and Indian paint brush

I snapped a picture of these 2....

& got some sugars from him~

Yes, it was a very good day!

Then we're back in the big city~

Thank you for coming along our little trip!

Hugs~ J.

This is a stunning sunrise and I love the pictures in the flowers. I won't get to see the sunrise for awhile since I'm starting work at 6:00 a.m. now (ick) so I appreciate your's! Good thing Kaje' can drive now or I'd be in a world of hurt trying to get her to school! Have a fantastic day. Oh, I almost forgot. I can't wait to see what you bought!! Me

Have you noticed that most people are blogging and posting on Wed. anymore and that most days it looks like a ghost town? Just curious if it's just me or if things have shifted. I'm off Wed. so Thursday is major catch-up on reading blogs for me. I forgot to say that I love that house too! It looks like a fun road trip and boy, what a long drive! Love the throw you made too and think it was a perfect project for a car. I'm usually driving so I have to just rock out to my music in the car! LOL!

That town is so quaint and charming too....
I'm glad you and your family had a wonderful day!
