Texas Trip

I met Stan earlier this year when he was coming through the Denver area and we’ve remained friends.  He’s currently living in the Austin area of Texas and he’d invited me to come down for his family reunion.  So I did, always love going somewhere I’ve never been and I’d never been to Texas.  We stayed at his mom’s house (Wanda & Mac) and then went to the reunion on Sunday at his sister’s house (Bev & Rick).  Stan is Miranda Lambert’s uncle (Stan’s sister is Miranda’s mom) so it was great to meet her family.  Miranda was in California over the weekend and wasn’t able to come.  Wanda & Mac were a kick and Stan’s sister, Bev is just a hoot.  I loved Bev’s home – it’s an big old farmhouse with a big front porch and all original wood floors – I was totally in love with it.  “Roadie” is the little dog in the pic.  Rick had found him on the side of the road while on a hunting trip.  The little white house is “The House That Built Me” and is the actual home that Miranda’s song is about – it is where they lived when they had fallen on hard times when she was young.  It’s actually down the road from where they live now.  Wanted to share a few of my pics with you all.  It was a great time and what an experience!
