Just one more post on my Texas trip…I have that feeling when you know that you’ve shown one too many family dvds of little johnny’s birthday party…and one by one all of your guests are excusing themselves to the restroom – and never returning! That’s way I’ve saved the pictures for last – hopefully, that will make you come back from the bathroom! I promise I will finish my notes today….
We headed out on Sunday morning after the wedding….headed toward San Antonio – by way of a super cute town called Fredericksburg. We actually have a Fredericksburg close to home here but the one in Texas had a true German feel. Actually, quite a bit of Texas was originally settled by Germans…who knew? The town had tons of charm; however, it was quite the tourist spot. It was really crowded – and personally, I was just captivated by Georgetown earlier so it just didn’t compare for me.
We had a nice time there, though. And had a yummy, quite authentic German meal. While actually, my girlfriend did. I had pizza…sad, I know. But I did try cabbage! But the best thing I had to eat…maybe even the whole trip…was during our lunch there – FRIED PICKLES!! I’ve been told they are quite the “southern” treat and easily found lots of places but personally, I had never heard of them and was a bit skeptical. They were the best!! My friend thought they were a bit too spicy but I couldn’t get enough!! Please tell me – has anyone else every had a sliced dill pickle…with a zippy breading and perfectly fried…..and ranch dressing to dip them in??? Oh, I want to go back!!
Then on to San Antonio….and you know who is in San Antonio?? My boy, Jordan! Honestly, I did not think it was going to work out that I would have a chance to see him – which was terrible. So close and not even a minute. But it turns out we were able to pick him from the base and spend about two hours with him – two short but oh so special hours for the mommy missing her far-away baby!!
I grabbed this photo of us at Olive Garden – yes, he wanted food! It was taken on my cell phone and honestly looks great…on the phone. I had no idea it was so fuzzy until I transferred it to the computer – so disappointing. But I will share it with you anyways! And, by the way, I did get photos from my girlfriend (the one who remembered a camera!) and I’ll post those tomorrow!
I don’t know – who looks happier? The proud momma…or the airman getting off base and having “real” food?? He is just too cute! 🙂
