A LOVE Fest!
I had made no plans for my birthday on Saturday. On Thursday a message from my daughter, Julie, asking if I wanted to celebrate with she, my granddaughters, Jessica, Hannah and Emma was
answered with a resounding "YES".
It began early Saturday morning with me driving to Kingwood, about forty minutes from where I
am staying, and the FUN began............
First, of course, we stopped for sustenance for the LONG drive, ha, (three hours) to Austin! COFFEE was at the top of my list and the others got their goodies as well. The waitstaff took our
first photo of many..........and then, we were off.
One of the GREAT things was, I did not have to drive. Beautiful drive and beautiful wildflowers.....
except it was raining, the wind was blowing and the temperature was dropping like a rock.
The manager saw us having so much fun and took this photo!
Onward we went. The wind was blowing so hard there were whitecaps on the ranch ponds and steam was rising off the water! I tried and tried to get a photo as we whizzed by - no such luck.
with hugs and love. Then someone took this photo of us all together!
Somehow five of us managed to sleep on air mattresses, a futon and a bed in a small one
bedroom apartment. More laughter, on Sunday. Ultimately, we had to leave Austin. Sadly we all
hugged, with me declaring it "my BEST birthday ever" and off we drove. Back to Houston. Whew,
what fun - what memories and what laughter.
I cannot imagine another birthday ever being better! Thanks to my family, my friends and all the ancillary people (waiters and stander-bys) who made it all possible.
