After Christmas Relaxing Vacation

**Warning: this blog contains almost 40 pictures. Here's your warning. However, in my defense, I took close to 300!! Just be glad I settled with 40**

The day after Christmas, we loaded up with my family to head out of town for a few days. My parents rented a little house, out in the country, right outside of Bandera. What's in Bandera you may ask...nothing!! And that was the point. We wanted to get away for a few days just to relax with no distractions. We spent on day touring the little town of Bandera. They had cute little Antique shops and boutiques. I don't think the guys enjoyed it all that much, but us girls sure had fun. The next day we traveled about 45 minutes to Fredricksburg. Again, we explored all the little shops, walked around the town square, and ate some yummy food. We had a good time there. The last day we just hung around the house. We walked down to the river to skip rocks and "hike" some. Then we grilled steaks and watched a movie. We had a great time!! It was so nice to get away, turn off the phones & computers, and just relax with family. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking. 

Playing Fuse Ball the night we got there.
Chillin with Aunt Daisy

Playing with some of his new Christmas toys.

Playing an intense game of Yatzee!

We woke up to these deer in the yard every morning.

Walking around Fredricksburg.

Outside the awesome candy shop!

Someone is getting tired! Until he discovered daddy's coke bottle made an awesome teether!

In the town square.

Walking around the shops.

Bath time in the sink!!

The beginning of our hike.

Skipping rocks by the river

And eating them!

Ryan and Micah spotted a fallen tree that stretched across the river, and they were determined to get there. We did, although our feet were wet and I'm pretty sure there were some battle wound from being smacked by tree branches. 

It was about a 3 foot drop, and we all took turns walking across just so we could say we made it! 

Eating on the porch.

We had a such a good time! Thanks mom & dad for the trip!!
