Anniversaries and Memories

We were in Ballinger last week

and by "we", I mean David, Cindy, Lin, their dad ( Grandad ), Jaxon and myself.

The sky was dark and gloomy with fog all around us when we started our journey, but that all soon burned off once we got to Ballinger.

We were there for a couple of reasons, one of which was to visit Granny Franny's grave.

The boys left some flowers at the stone and we went off to look at some property the family owned, and hopefully have some adventures. :)

The little boy fell asleep so we decided to drive around before finding a place to have lunch.

One of the places that we stopped at was The Cross, a 100 foot tall metal, well, cross.

Once the little boy woke up, lunch was at a local sandwich shop, the Main Street Soda Fountain, which was also where we ate when we were here last year.

Cindy, Jaxon and I decided to do a little exploring while waiting for our food

and then went across the street with David to run around a little bit.

A happy little reindeer hitched a ride with us on the way home,
