Weekend @ Fredericksburg

Les and I decided to take a little trip to Fredericksburg and enjoy the sites. We didn't realize it was "Trade Days" and a big wedding in town, so we didn't make reservations. The first night we stayed where we could find a room and the next night we had our choice.

We spent Saturday with Larry & Susie Lardy from Kerrville and we had such a fun time starting with breakfast at a German bakery and then on to shopping. I purchased a beautiful urn (No, not Grecian) for our new house--when that happens. We mostly "looked" at shops-one an art gallery where we could go outside and see the outdoor art of different designers. (This is the shop where I dropped my camera and no more pictures!)

That afternoon the Lardy's gifted us with tickets to a local performance of music, comedy and impersonations. It was a great show! After that we took them to dinner at a restaurant that was formerly a cotton gin. Wonderful food! (no pictures)
Oh, I didn't mention the wildseed farm...that was interesting and beautiful plants everywhere...no, I didn't buy any seeds but I did buy some jelly/jam.

Sunday we went to Enchanted Rock and enjoyed our drive seeing wildlife along the way. Then back to Waco via Marble Falls which is such a quaint town. We ate outside on the river and it was very scenic. Lots of fun and few pictures :(

TV Dinner

Sunday was a "stay home" day, at least for Les. I bought groceries after the meeting and delivered Mom & Dad with their shopping request. After that I decided to watch a movie and it was one of my favorites, "To Catch a Thief". We had eaten lunch at Olive Garden so it seemed to me that we should have a light dinner while watching TV. And we did! Consisting of laMadeleine Tomato Basil soupe, broiled sausage, cheese, crackers,veggies, wine and a lemmon pie.

This reminded me of years ago when we would have a fun dinner and watch TV in our study...so I thought you girls would appreciate reminiscing. Is it any wonder that you both are constantly serving gourmet dinners???
