Bright and early Saturday morning we all set out on a much anticipated trip to the town of Fredericksburg, Texas. Situated among the rolling slopes of the Texas Hill Country, this quaint town offers a superb shopping and dining experience to tourists and locals alike. A cool front had at last blown in, driving out the stifling heat of the past three weeks which made the day much more enjoyable. There is something to be said for an 80 degree day.

Mom and I were delighted with the vast array of shops which line the main thoroughfare of the town. We loved browsing and pointing out to each other cute and unusual items found on the shelves. Dad was kind enough to wait for us outside the different shops with PopPop, but I think he enjoyed the relaxing pace and vacation-like atmosphere of a Saturday out with his family.

Fredericksburg has definitely been marked as a "must see" when all our dear friends from back home come and visit. (Hint, hint!)

We started the day at Denny's, in the city of Beorne, on our way to Fredericksburg.

If a spy was listening in to my conversations while I was walking around in Fredericksburg, he would have heard many exclamations of "When Dani comes we simply must go here!" I know you won't be able to make it until after the holidays, but that's OK, we can always start our shopping early for next Christmas! :)

Um, cough, I thought you were aware of the blog, but I guess you were in bed when I was posting. Sorry about that!

Sounds like nice 80 weather. Here in Kansas we're having 40 to 60 degree weather. Enjoy San Antonio!

If we had a choice, we would all most certainly prefer the 40-60 degree weather you all are enjoying, but since we now live in Texas, 80 degrees sounds so much better than 100! I can't believe it's nearly the middle of October and I'm excited about 80 degrees, but I guess that's what happens when you move down South.
Have fun enjoying the cool, crisp days of autumn.
