We Really Do Have Hills
It is a beautiful day. These are the days I've longed for all during our relentlessly hot summer. I know what you're thinking and you're right. It's always hot in Texas in the summer. However, this summer was a record-breaker, and there were times it seemed it would never cool off. It has, and the fact that we can actually turn off the a.c. and open the windows is a huge blessing.

Walking is becoming a lot more pleasant too. I was thinking about the post I did on our walk. A few of you were surprised that we have hills here so I thought I would show you a few pictures of what it looks like just "down the road a piece". I hope you enjoy them. I love riding along these roads






We have spent many happy hours at this state park. It was the place our son always picked to have his July 4th birthday party!

This is the road we traveled when we went camping a couple of Thanksgivings ago.


















See - we really do have hills!


All of these beautiful photos are courtesey of flickr.

Blessings,

I'm so glad I'm a Texan. (even though I have to drive a couple of hours to be in the hills)

I can't remember if I commented or not, but I wanted to say I liked the pics. I have never been to Texas. Have a great week.

I do believe that it is your BIRTHDAY today!! Pea let the cat out of the bag, so I am here to say Happy Birthday, my sweet friend! Have a wonderful day!

Those are beautiful pictures! I love the state park photo. My dad was born and raised in Texas, but he said it was mostly flat where he lived. When my husband and I were first married we had to drive across country to our new home in VA...I had never been to Texas so we stopped in my dad's hometown to camp for the night and it was so desolate! But this is proof that Texas can also be beautiful!

And a little bird told me (her name is Pea!) that it's your birthday today?
A very, very happy birthday to you, dear Linda!
Hugs,
~Tammy

Hi Linda, I wanted to thank you so very much for your sweet comment and for the prayers of your husband and yourself, for my family and husband. It means the world to us to know that there are people praying for us, for our children, for Ron's safety. I pray God continues to bless you for your loving kindness.

The pictures you shared are beautiful! I miss the wide open spaces of America! Also, I wish you a very Happy Birthday!!

((Hugs))

Hi Linda,
The state park reminds me of Guadelupe. Am I close? My sister lives in New Braunfels...and I wish I lived further south and closer to her. I love the slower pace she enjoys in NB.

Your pictures are beautiful! I love how open the skies are and how rugged the country side is. big sigh
