This past weekend, we all went to see Abe's mother and father. They live in the country about 15 miles outside Boerne in the Texas Hill Country. It is a very nice, relaxing place to visit and we always eat really well (Abe's dad is a great cook). We were lucky on Saturday to have nice enough weather so the kids could play outside. However, we had to "watch for snakes"!!! Three poisonous snakes (a rattlesnake, a copperhead and a coral snake) had been found relatively near the house. The rattlesnake had been found TWO STEPS FROM THE BACK PORCH!!!! Because of the very wet weather the reptiles were looking for dry ground...NEAR THE HOUSE!!! So I became a "little" concerned when the kids were outside...."Don't play near the woodpile!"..."Don't walk through the leaves!"..."Get away from the shed!"..."Abe, Abe, Mack is running through tall grass. Grab him!" I think I spoiled everyone's fun but there were no snakebites on my watch. :)
Thanks Katie and Alora for keeping the kids entertained. They had a great time!
