Fall Colors

We are spending this week at Blanco State Park, about 40 miles north of San Antonio in the hill country. The fall colors are amazing this year, because it has been so dry and warm. This state park is one of our favorites. We always enjoy spending time outside and walking along the river.
We will be leaving on Sunday, going to Mustang Island State Park, near Corpus Christi for a week. After that our plans are to head south to our "winter home" in Rio Hondo. Donnie talked to Paul Marez today and learned Becky Jo's parents will be spending time again this winter on South Padre Island. We are looking forward to seeing Glenn and Mary, as S.P.I. is only a half hour's drive from Rio Hondo.

Tom & Mary Jo

Our friends Tom and Mary Jo Phillips at their home in Manchaca (near Austin). We were so glad we got to see them if only for a short time. They are a neat couple and make our summers at Mayhill a lot of fun.

Exotic Cars

On Monday we had lunch at one of our favorite BBQ joints, the Salt Lick in Driftwood, TX. Afterwards we walked out to the parking lot and were surrounded by 20 or more exotic cars. Casey, your Dad thought you might like to see these photos. The drivers, from all over the U.S., were participating in a long distance road race.

Happy Halloween!

We just had to share this photo of the grandsons in their Halloween costumes. Rylee and Parker playing cowboys and indians!

Becky's Birthday

Rylee helped Grandma blow out my birthday candles on the beautiful cake his Mom made. It tasted great too! Thanks Angie!
