Bringing it home

The last day of our Family Vacation was Sunday May 12, 2013.  Mother's Day!
It was a real driving tour of Texas Hill Country.  We took about 9 hours to get home (Johnson City is 4 hours from our house).  It was fabulous.  It was the best Mother's Day so far.
Our first stop was Luckenbach. The kids had a great time running around.
And looking at the Roosters
Then we drove to Fredericksburg.  Such a sweet town.  And we ate at a new restaurant for us - Mihalia's.
The best breakfast tacos!!!!

Then we took a drive.  We saw Enchanted Rock and went through several small towns.  At one point close to lunch I realized we were only about 30 minutes from where we had started that morning!

Around noon we found Inks Lake State Park.  It was so nice.  This is Aaron being a horse.
There was a Sand Volley Ball court and the kids played with Jory like they were at the beach - building sand castles.  Looking over and watching that was the best Mother's Day moment.

There was also a fun playground.  And the park itself was beautiful.  We plan to go back.

They also had a food truck so we ordered lunch and ate at a picnic table.  It was precious.  LOVED this day.

Then we did actually head home.  We unloaded, called the moms, visited with a neighbor and put the kids to bed.  Then my husband surprised me by going to pick up Italian from a nice restaurant in Southlake for Mother's Day dinner, complete with dessert.  Fabulous!

It was a wonderful vacation for everyone!

Is this the L. town from Waylen Jennings song, "Let's go back to Lukenbach,Texas?"
