We had a great time celebrating B’s accomplishment with the family! While boys went off for pizza I had a great dinner with the MIL, and then Michael & I headed back to Grandma & Pappy’s to stay with our little monkey! The next day we had breakfast then headed out to the Ranch to pick up the camper to get ready for camping, and headed home! All in all a busy but great weekend!!
On a more serious note… one thing I would like to touch on is driving thru Bastrop!! The devastation the wildfire has left behind is crazy to see in person!! It really resonates sadness throughout you. To see the ash, the blackness, and all that was left of the houses were metal roofs… leaves you in awe!! I think the craziest thing I saw as we were driving was a cul-de-sac and there were 4 or 5 house burnt to the ground and then there was one house standing, saved from the fire!! I could not imagine having our house burn down… but then to have your whole neighborhood burn down… inconceivable!!
I hope that those of you in the Austin area are going thru your clothes, house, and bank account to donate to these families in need!!
