One Last Time

For all of those who didn’t know, I am back again. After VBS and painting my den, this past weekend I stopped by Ft. Worth and picked up Jason and Brandon before heading to San Antonio to visit my Uncle and his family. Julie was already in San Antonio for a Music Director conference.

We spent all day Saturday on Canyon Lake- one of my favorite Texas lakes. The water is very clear and always relaxing. David and I are dark skinned and tan easily. Brandon, Jason, and Julie burn if they are not lathered in some sort of SPF 30 or more. I always take my tanning lotion with an SPF of 4 or less just to ‘rub it in’. We had a great time on my Uncle’s boat visiting with his family and my Aunt from New York.

Sunday we attended church at the H.O.P.E. Center. Service was great and a special treat for us was that they had a visiting evangelist- Bro. Creekmore. Not the Creekmore that I had grown up hearing but his son, Shane. He had a lot of his father’s characteristics when he preached and yet he also has his own as well.

On our way home we stopped by a Czech bakery on I-35 in the town of West. Julie had stopped before and promised us that it had the best authentic kolaches anywhere. She was right. I learned that a kolache is a Czech and Slovak pastry made with cream cheeses and fruit filling. Americans added the meat (Of course)! On most trips I am not a fan of stopping, but I do like to find small places around the state that you can stop at and make the trip more interesting from time to time.
On Monday my Aunt flew in from San Antonio and will be visiting here for the next week. It is sad to say, but this is now the finial days of my summer vacation. It has been an enjoyable one, but you can always use another week- or two

I think you need to be back in school! The proper spelling is final, not 'finial' :) Glad you're home!

Yea! Kolaches. My favorite stopping place between WF & Austin except for the Outlet Mall in Hillsboro!

Glad you had a good time with your family. I've never had a kolache before, but I would love to check it out! I know how you feel about summer break coming to an end, but for some reason, I'm ready to go back to school. I know.... call me crazy, but maybe it's because I'm getting closer to retirement!!! I'm also ready for WINTER!!!!
