Sat. April 10,2010 - Andy and Leanne

Friday night, April 9th we took the Honda and drove from Columbus TX to Austin to be with Andy and Leanne for the weekend. We celebrated Andy's birthday on the way out west and now we're celebrating Keith's on the way east! It's ALWAYS a hoot to be with Andy and Leanne so we could hardly wait!

Sat. morning the 4 of us drove to Fredericksburg with no exact plan....except for the Bluebonnets loop. I took Rita (our GPS) and she took us a beautiful back road to the loop.

Andy stopped the car when we came upon this old house with all these bluebonnets.. The cameras came out and we had a ball. Everywhere you looked it was more beautiful. Our back road turned out to be just as great as the real loop.

Leanne, Andy and Keith in the flower patch:)

Yes, Andy is checking out the restaurant to see if this is where we wanted to eat once we got settled into Fredericksburg. The weather was wonderful - just perfect for walking.... and eating outside.

The drinks were yummy. It was just so darn hard to decide what to order, right Leanne?

On the way out of town is Wildseed Farms...WHAT A PLACE... acres and acres of flowers. It was very crowded since this is the peak weekend for the bluebonnets. Just getting a parking space was a challenge. It was so worth going there. Leanne wanted a few plants to replace some in their front yard that didn't make it over the winter, but, they didn't have any or were sold out.

Isn't this field of Red Corn Poppy just splendid?

Even tho this wall of flowers were about at their end...they were still awesome..

There were ponds upon ponds. Thought this little guy was so cute.

Besides having a band, they had this group making, baking and giving away biscuits.

This guy was in charge of the fire.

The end product was enjoyed by us all....mmmmm Keith liked them!

Austin was having a 3 day ROD cruise. Leanne suggested that we drive toward the capitol and see what was going on. Boy did she make Andy and Keith happy.

The street was lined with cars for miles...

Of course this 57 caught Keith's eye. What memories we both have of our 57's:)

By the time we got back to their house...we decided to call it a night. It was like 3 days into 1.
We were going to go back on Sunday to watch the parade, but it rained and we knew that most of the RODs would not be there.
Keith and Andy went to the store for seafood and they made Leanne and me pouched salmon. It was a perfect way to end a GREAT time tog.
Hang in there'll be on the road with us before you know it! Can't ya
