NEVER trust the Bing maps! The Bing map was ten exits off just in my first venture out from the airport to Round Rock, Texas to visit the parents at Parkview Meadows where they recently moved. An hour wasted on I 35 just trying to find the correct roads. Grrr.
I took lots of pictures. Just a few here..
My brother Chuck and sweet SIL Karen McCarroll
Chuck has his own blog that you can reference at this link. He calls it I'm Not Drinking O'bama's Koolaid, so if you are also in this mind frame, you might get a kick out of his editorial snippets and cartoons displayed. He is the brother with all that artistic talent that I previously referenced on this blog post

Aunt Mary Mays who lives in Waco, TX
Above is an oil painting of Texas bluebonnets that I remember from my earliest childhood that Aunt Mary has in her newly remodeled apartment where she now lives with her grandson and his family.
In all, I got to see both brothers and SIL, one nephew and his darling young family, my father and his wife, my sister, my aunt and various distant cousins, the youngest of whom was six months and an absolute doll.
Remember the blanket knit for him? (Ravelry reference is on the bottom of the post)
It was good to visit and catch up on family issues. It was even better getting home. You know what I mean.
