Grandma Lynda holding Treyson's foot up to the camera so we can see how big is foot is.  Notice the comparisonn to her hand.

And the print of his foot...almost too big for the paper :)

Christopher and Treyson

Hope you enjoyed these pictures.

Catch Up with Pictures

Hello Everybody!!
Sorry it has been so long since I have written a blog.  Could make lots of excuses but what good would that do ~ nothing.  So to get you caught up to where we are I thought I would just post some pictures and tell a little about what we have been doing.  Hope you enjoy!!

In case you forgot who we are and what we look like ~
Ron & Alice, also known in Texas as Ali

 On Saturday, May 7th, the US Postal Carriers had their annual food drive.  The members of Lone Star Corral came together and made a great donation of food for the local D'Hanis community.  The collected food covered half the floor of the office lobby.  Great job Lone tar Corral members!

 Touring Comfort, Texas

 Stopped for lunch at Brinks Cafe in Bandera, TX.  They serve ice tea Texas stytle in a quart mason jar.  We had a beautiful view from the window...if they were to get rain this would be a beautiful waterfall.  And just look at the size of those onion rings.  Also on that sampler plate was huge slices of zuchinni, cheese sticks and jalapeno slices called bottle caps.  There were also these bright red bottle caps that I, Ali, thought were carrot slices, nope, red peppers and boy were they HOt!!!

More pictures of Comfort, TX.  We were only there for an hour or so, so we are planning another visit to that sweet little town as they have a winery that we would like to visit.

 More sights of Comfort, Texas.

On Saturday we went into Bandera for Funtier Days.  It was a fun day to check out an arts & craft sale and watch a delightful parade.  Our only complaint was it would have been nice if the people to our right and left would have stayed to our right and left.  Nope, they had to move in front of us to watch the was a bit frustrating but we finally got to the point where we would just look at them and then at each other and just laugh.  
This weekend, Memorial Day Holiday, we took a mini-vacation and went to Medina Lake Thousand Trails.  They also serve food up Texas style ~ check out the bottle of syrup!  We heard one little boy telling his Grandma that he saw 32 deer from their campsite to the swimming pool.  The deer are fun to watch.  Had one lady tell us that one came right up to her as she was sitting at their picnic table to sniff her and looking for food.

And then I did some decorating for the holiday.   Love to have all my red, white & blue decorations throughout the motor home. 

We have had a great mini-vacation.  Spent a lot of time just reading, relaxing and taking a dip in the pool.  Spent Sunday evening up at the Family Lodge visiting with new friends and listening to some great country music by Bimbo and the Borderlines.  Even danced a few times with Ron ~ y'all would be happy to know he behaved himself on the dance floor.

Our New Pet!!

We have acquired a new pet.  Not sure if he is a he or a she and a horny toad or a lizard.  
We think it might be a horny toad because it is so fat but the tail seems a little long for a horny toad so really we do not know.  Any one have an idea?

Our new pet lives in our backyard, usually hiding by the patio set that we have been loaned from one of the members.  Let me tell you, I do make sure to move the cushions on the chairs before I plop down in one of the chairs.

We have not named our pet but he/she greets us most days when we come out of the office for lunch.  He/she sits patiently until we get close to the gravel and then he/she takes off on a quick run.  He/she is fun to watch. 

Hope you enjoyed meeting our new pet!

Views of Lone Star Corral

One of the things we do here at Lone Star Corral is to take drives around the park in the early evening's to just see how things are looking.  The other day I took the camera with me so I could share what some of the sights we see right here in our little community.  

Hope you enjoy!

This little motor home belongs to one our boon-docking guests.  It is about 22' long.  
I thought it was kinda cute.  What do you think?
This is the front of the office.  My home away from home.  The two flowering plants are wild sunflowers.  We were being told to pull them there weeds.  We liked them so we kept them.  They grew to about  2' taller before the flowers started to die off.  Then Ron removed them.  They were a bright yellow and beautiful to see from the window inside the office.

One of the many "sheds" through the park.
 Ron keeps threatening to "steal" Judi & Dave's wheels.  Don't think he is too serious though because she has been known to leave the keys in it while it is parked outside the office and Ron never does try to take it. 

 This little house sits across from the office.  I understand it has been pulled in a few of the local parades.  I think it would make a great playhouse for Opal - do you think we could tow it behind the Jeep when we head back to Washington?

 Ron likes this little cowboy!

 Can you tell what this landscape is made of?
 Hundreds of Golf Balls!!!

 This is one of Ron's favorite lots here in Lone Star Corral.

Hope you enjoyed this visit to Lone Star Corral.
