Yeah. It was.
Not that the girls and I let it put a damper on our weekend. The heat may have made us glisten (read: melt) a bit (read: a ton), and the GINORMOUS crickets may have freaked us out a little (read: almost peed my pants a few times) but we didn't let either one slow us down!
With Kristin, our fantabulous hostess at the wheel, KM and I were on the move!
Besides seeing cactus along the road (seriously, cactus in the WILD...wish I would've gotten a photo of THAT),
we visited the lake:
went to the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory (really cool):
went antique shopping in the precious little town of Bourne:
where we saw these beauties:
and had lunch in this cute little cafe:
saw this apparently very alive but sleeping owl
(I was about to touch him when someone thankfully warned us they'd seen him move and he was alive)
I'm still trying to get caught up on photos and writing and reading, and you know, STUFF, so stay tuned for The Heat! The Conference! The Shopping! Part II...which will be the San Antonio part of our trip...
What about you? Any fun trips you've taken this summer? I'm a photo tour addict, so feel free to leave me links in the comments. I love living through other people (hello, I'm a book addict!).
Hope this post finds you keeping cool...wherever you might be!
