Meanwhile Back at the Ranch...

On Sunday morning (the morning after Andrew's wedding), we left the hotel and made the hour drive to the ranch to spend some time with Mom, Armando and Uncle Calletano (or Uncle Larry as we like to call him...but that's a long story - haha). They arrived there last Friday to spend a few days, go to Andrew's wedding (about an hour from the ranch) and then they will head to Port Aransas on Thursday for the weekend. Mom and Armando love spending time at the ranch (which is outside of Devine, Texas) and eventually hope to make their home there - it's their happy place!


We got out there Sunday in time for a delicious breakfast and to scope out the area. It's such a nice and peaceful place - so relaxing! About mid-morning, we went into Bandera to walk around downtown and visit some craft booths in the downtown square area. We also shared some nachos on the patio of a nice little restaurant on main street. We even got to see a short parade of horses. After we were back to the ranch we took a drive in the golf cart around the ranch to see it all, John took a nap, we enjoyed the rain, the guys played horseshoes...then that evening we had a very yummy dinner, talked and watched some tv. We slept in the motorhome that night and left for home on Monday morning.


Here are a few of the pictures we took (again, we took several - though Mom and I didn't make it into any)...

I think after spending time at the ranch, we were really in relax mode because when we got back home on Monday we took a three hour nap...which I NEVER do - WOW! It felt really good though - we got some much needed rest.

We will be out of town again this weekend to visit John's family in Arkansas. We are looking forward to a nice time with them and of course we'll have a report on that trip as well! Have a great rest of the week and weekend...

Until we meet again...
