Labor Day Fun!

We had such a nice Labor Day Weekend. We went to the Ranch to visit Josh's parents and Grandparents from Arizona. It was so nice to see his Grandparents, they live so far away that we don't get to spend enough time with them. On Monday, they came to stay with us and see our new house, and we took them to Cafe Blue, and to see the lake.
Looking at the water, really wanting to get in. The day after we took this picture, it started raining in Austin and we had 14 inches of rain in 24 hours. The lake is now full, and not low like it looks in the picture, and where the kids are standing is now under water.
Sunday we went exploring at the LBJ Ranch in Stonewall. It is a beautiful ranch and they offer drive thru tours of the property. So the kids and I and Josh's mom listened to the CD and drove thru the ranch, but didn't make any stops until we got to the living history farm. The rest of the group stopped at LBJ's house (the Texas White House) for that tour.
Of course Brody wanted to ride the wagon. Any and all things transportation for him.
We chased the sheep trying to pet them. I wonder why they did not want Brody and Jaden to pet them :)
We looked at chickens, roosters, and turkey that roamed freely
And we saw pigs and cows through the fences. Brody REALLY wanted to jump through the fence and make new friends.
We shared storied with Great G & G
And we had lots of fun and made new memories. Thanks for coming to Texas to see us Great Grandma & Grandpa. We will cherish our time together. And Thanks for hosting the weekend G & G. You made sure everyone had a great time. We love you all!
