As someone who moved across the country from family and close friends, I can tell you that I do not take for granted living close to family and friends. A one hour drive finds us at my grandparents house. This past weekend, that is where we were.
It was a quick trip to Austin to run a few errands, then a run to Mamaw and Papaw’s house. The kids always love visiting their house. Aside from the usual toys, books and candy, they love chatting away with them and somehow they always end up in giggles.
During this trip we ended up spending a lot of time running around in the leaves in the front yard. After living in a very wet state, dry crunchy leaves were probably a novelty. The kids loved running through and hearing the crunch with every step.
At one point, Jack even got Mamaw to chase him around the tree!! He is quite the silly boy!
I had to get out from behind the camera and join in the fun.
I had leaves in my shirt during our drive home, but it was worth it!
I have said it before, but I will say it again, I love living in Texas again.
