First of all I have to ask you to ignore the watermarks on these snaps. This is the watermark for my other blog, Note Songs. I don't know what I was thinking when I edited these snaps...I guess I wasn't thinking. Well, I'm just talented like this at times! :)
We decided we would take Kiki and head out for San Angelo, Texas, which is hubby's hometown.
We found many very nice road side stops and believe me we visited a few of them.
Do you remember when these where just a couple of picnic tables and scary bathrooms?
They have come a long way and I'm so glad.
We decided to bring Chloe Dawn with us. She has only spent one night in Kiki and we wanted her to get used to traveling with us. She's 13 and gets scared very easily. So half way to San Angelo I was sitting in the back with her, holding her and talking to her. She was shaking all over. Poor baby.
She was so glad to be able to get out of Kiki and walk around a bit.
See that little smile of hers..
I'm happy to say she did just fine and calmed down. So she'll be going with us more.
Lovely sights along the way but this is Texas and honey it was HOT!
We found a campground on Lake Nasworthy called Spring Creek Marina and RV Park.
It was nice and lots of campers were there but it was HOT!
As I said, my hubby was born and raised here and he told me stories of how he used to water ski on this lake. You can't do that now, just boats were going by very slowly.
There's our little spot under the mesquite trees. Did I tell you it was HOT?
I don't do well in the HOT weather so while hubby hooked up Kiki, Chloe Dawn and I took a little walk around the RV park.
Chloe Dawn was looking for monsters. She was sure one was in those bushes.
The water was calm and very pretty but it was HOT!
We grilled out hamburgers and I wasn't in a very good mood because it was so HOT. Hubby said, "Let's eat outside on the little picnic table." Well, I was trying so hard to be a good little wifey poo and while putting the fixings on my burger, flies dive bombed me! My eyes, my nose, my mouth, my burger! I said, "No way! There are too many flies out here and it's too HOT!" We took our food inside and about 5 million flies came inside Kiki with us!
I knew I should have bought that little fly swatter I had seen while out shopping.
Later I did cool off and kept swatting flies all night long.
The next day we drove around San Angelo and revisited the places hubby had lived, drove by his old schools and places he had worked. It was a fun day and very nostalgic for him.
When we got downtown I grabbed Reba (my camera) and started snapping away.
San Angelo is called the Sheep and Wool Capital of the World
so these marvelous little painted sheep were on almost every corner.
There was one more little leg of this trip and share it with you later.
till next time,
