Texas Weekend Getaway

Jon's mom is in town visiting us. For part of the visit, Jon planned a trip for he and I to go away for a long weekend in the hill country. This is our first time away from Annabelle. The first night we stayed in Gruene, TX and stayed at the Gruene Mansion Inn and saw Kelly Willis in concert at Gruene Hall. The next day we drove to Canyon Lake and enjoyed lunch on the lake. We also made a stop in Luckenback, TX and enjoyed a beer at the General Store. We stopped at winery on our way to Stonewall, TX which is close to Fredericksburg, TX. Our favorite was the Grape Creek Winery. We sat outside and we felt like we were in the California wine country.We stayed the night at the Rosehill Mansion. The third night we stayed in Fredericksburg at a bed and breakfast which we loved call the 202 Bread and Breakfast.
We got lucky and had the whole place to ourselves. The owner left sodas and snacks for us and breakfast coupons. She also left a package of empty bottles for me to fill at Bath Junkie which was a lovely treat for me. We stayed in the Dora Etta room. During the day we enjoyed shopping in Fredericksburg and driving through the hill country.

Thank you Nannie for watching Annabelle for us!!
