A Little Getaway

Sometimes days just go by too fast.

I spent the weekend in Leona/College Station visiting Austin and my Nana. It was fun, relaxing and like a mini-vacation. I got to eat at this wonderful steak place with Austin, where our waitress gave him advice on how to treat me on our "date". She must have thought it was our first date or something, because she kept giving him tips on what to do. It was hilarious.

We took a trip to a state park that was down the road and had a picnic there. The lake was beautiful and we listened to Tree63 on Austin's fun speakers as we ate. We had to murder a couple spiders and ants during lunch, but it was a wonderful afternoon.

We also walked around at the farm and discovered a garden spider who had made his home on a deer blind. Austin caught a couple grasshoppers and threw them into the web, and we watched Ziggy (I named him) run over to his lunch, wrap it up, and return to his original resting place in just a few seconds. On the same walk, we saw a snake by the creek, which we could not identify. He was greyish-yellow on the top and light yellow on the bottom, and he wasn't a particularly long snake. Any ideas??

For the first time in months, we took advantage of $4.00 tickets and went to see a movie - Get Smart. Has anyone else seen this? It was funny, but not one of the best movies I've seen in a while. I really wish movies weren't so expensive. The $9.50 you'll pay in some towns is just ridiculous.

One of the highlights was seeing Austin play the drums at a church in Madisonville on Sunday. Good grief! I really can't believe that boy taught himself how to play the drums, starting a mere six months ago. Well, actually, I can believe it, because Austin can pretty much do anything (especially if it relates to music)!

I had really great Italian food with Nana and Austin on Sunday. I wish I could eat food like that more often! I'm so excited that I get to go back to College Station next week before 4th of July in Houston. Hopefully I'll get to catch up with Nana some more.

All in all, the weekend was great. It made me realize how much I miss College Station! I think the new Super Target is open, and although I have about 3 different Super Targets near me (that I can think of), I am still a little sad that I no longer live there.

Oh I gotta go - time to eat!
