The North Dakota-Texas Connection

How do we even begin to return to North Dakota after such a wonderful week?

Doug and I got to visit my brother, Robert, and Barb, in Texas this past week. You know, Doug and I of the Weather Curse. . . . you can pretty much figure out where we were by just thinking about that Hurricane Hermine, that came ashore as a tropical storm, and traveled up the center of Texas.

That's where we drove, from the Fort Worth area to Galveston, TX.

And before the Angry Weather Gods figured out we were there (whatEVER did we do to them????), we got to go out on Robert's pontoon and float on a real, honest-to-God, lake in hot, hot, Texas weather! It was total bliss!

And I don't know what Robert and Doug were exactly doing in this shot. . . . but look at the looks on their faces. . . .

. . . whatever is going through their brains is most likely, at minimum, wicked, slightly deranged, and perhaps even illegal. . . .

. . . . but at least it didn't sink the boat.

We went to sleep under this beautiful sky. . . .

If you have a chance, and haven't seen it already, check out the comment from the "Mayor of Arvilla" on my previous post.

That boat looks so comfy and amazing! :) And that warm weather looks so enticing! Ahhh, that last shot though. Total bliss for sure!

I am so jealous that I couldn't be there with ya'll!

That picture of Doug and Bob does look intriguing! At least Doug didn't bring his squirrel gun!

I love those expressions! It's almost like they are channeling Jack Sparrow. Arghhhh!

That boat looks like a floating party waiting to happen! I bet those guys were cooking up some serious fun, based on their expressions.

They do look like they are up to some sort of mischief of the manly kind! Great shots!

Wonder what your hubby and your brother in law were talking about... Glad you had a great time with family - too bad about the weather :(

Looks so fun and relaxing. Oh, and I loved the comment from Arvilla's mayor...or the talking cat....:)
