Brenham/College Station

Our mini-vaca this year was to Brenham and College Station. Oh we had such a fun time just being together and relaxing. And got a taste of some other things we'd like to do in the Brazos Valley...maybe in cooler Fall or Spring weather.

We headed down to Brenham checked into our hotel and cruised around town. We stopped in historic downtown and had ice cream, then made our way to St. Clare's Monastery miniature horse farm. It was fun to mingle with the horses (esp. since they were little) and pet the babies, um foals! My kind of horse, shorter than me. It was great walking around the farm, but oh so very very hot. How do you cool off in Texas? The pool, of course - which is where we went directly after the farm.

Next day, BLUEBELL CREAMERY! Even though I don't eat ice cream much anymore, I have been very excited about this. I grew up eating Bluebell. I remember catching my Dad standing in the kitchen eating out of the carton. He is completely addicted. Anyway, it was a great tour ending with a big fat serving of ice cream. The boys were beside themselves, eating ice cream at 10am...scandalous.

The next few days we spent at a dear friend's house - relaxing, swimming, driving range and golf (for Paul), more swimming and movies. I am so thankful we were able to spend time away from home, all 4 of us together!
