Up bright and early to head for the airport and our flight to Denver--we kissed Kyle goodbye and headed or our flights--yes, flights!!! We saw several soldiers and I went a couple of groups and thanked them for their sacrifice. (I so appreciate them for what they do)
When we landed in Austin, we had a little greeting part that included Neal, Chris and G-Man. A quick ride to their house and then we waited!!!! Yes, I was happy to see everyone, BUT I couldn't wait to see my newest little great grandson Baby L. I had seen pictures, but as Tammy and Marvin sing, "Ain't Nothin Like the Real Thing, Baby".
And oh, what a cuite he is, and such a good baby. Look at that face!!!
We had a great time while we were there. We headed to one of our favorite places to eat--Rudy's Barbeque, and it was AS GOOD AS EVER. As always, I ate way, way too much.
From Rudy's we went to see the Bat's. I knew Allan would love it. It is such an amazing experience.
And since we were still hungry--yeah, sure--we went to an ice cream place. It was delicious.
The next day was a lovely day at Church. Gotta love how handsome this little guy and his family were.
Macy fixed a fantastic meal of brisket--YUMMY and a delicious salad. And then for desert she served frozen berries covered with a hot chocolate sauce--it was PERFECT.
We had an opportunity to ichat with some of the family.
Then after the kids went to bed it was time for a little SCUM. The evening was full of laughs.
Before we headed out in the morning, I had a chance to hold Baby L and G-Man was taking video of us. His dad captured this picture, and I am so glad we have it.
We then headed out for a wonderful hike. First stop was at a park that had some beautiful peacocks.
