Fredericksburg!!

I'm a little late on this post...but better late than never! Brian, Avery and I FINALLY got to see my parents' land in Fredericksburg a couple of weeks ago! We started the weekend off by heading down to Round Top, Texas early Saturday morning for the Annual Butts Family Reunion!! (yes, my mom's maiden name is Butts....with 2 "T"s.) Anywho- Avery did AWESOME and slept the whole way there! I changed her diaper in the car right before heading inside....and then all of a sudden....an EXPLOSION of tears was upon us. And it lasted for a good part of 30 minutes. She finally calmed down after a while...but poor baby was NOT thrilled to see 75 unfamiliar faces all up in her grill. It was Uncle Weewee, Uncle Rileton, Nonni, & Big Poppy to the rescue. They were on rotation for the whole of her spell...so THANK YOU to The Curry Connection.

We proceeded to have a grand old time catching up with relatives we haven't seen in years...but mostly kept to ourselves (with G-ma and Lex/Uncle Bob/Aunt Sarah) to enjoy the rare occasion of all being together in the same place at the same time!The fam!

This is where Aves got her baby blues!

Cousins...plus Uncle Bob...minus Nathan & Heather

Sad to go our separate ways, we all headed home...but B, Aves, and I had the pleasure of joining my parents for a short little F-burg getaway! We stayed in a cute/kind of creepy little old bed & breakfast with a peach tree all to ourselves out in the front yard. We spent the next 2 days exploring the land my parents recently purchased, meeting our new neighbors out there (reallyyyy cute little old couple and a woman whose daughter my mom taught PE to at Settlers Way Elem...random!??), checking out all of the cute little shops in the main street, and eating at some of my parents' fav spots!sunset on the land w my fav/hub

Exploring... it was HOT!

Avery thoroughly enjoyed her first F-burg experience. Thank you SO much to Nonni & Big Poppy for a super great/relaxing/entertaining weekend! We love you guys, and loved seeing your place!
