This has been an extremely busy week. It is really hot here in Texas but I had the opportunity to chill in the Frio River over the weekend. For those that are not from around here, the Frio River is pretty cold year round. It was awesome to relax in the river during the 100 degree heat we have been having.
My husbands mother comes from a large family and every year we have a family reunion in Leakey Texas. We stay in cabins at Frio Pecan Farms. It is a wonderful working pecan farm on the river with cabins to rent. This year we had a little over 80 people in attendance which was a much smaller crowd than last years 130 +.
We all look forward to it every year and family comes from all over Texas, this year we had 5 from California.
Saturday night is a big family dinner, some of the family fried fish for the whole bunch and everyone else brings sides. It is great. We stand in a circle and count out to see how many people attended, then we pray and chow down.
Sunday, my son led a worship service and as a family we sang and gave thanks.
I am truly blessed to be a member of such an awesome experience and such an incredible family.
