Watching Seasons Change

        This past long weekend of travel, basketball, and family was the perfect backdrop for watching seasons change.


       On our trip from Houston to Austin to see my nephew’s play-off game, we had a traveling guest- our youngest grandson Mills.

        We stopped in Brenham for lunch , and while I was taking a picture of these vibrant pansies, he picked one to take into the restaurant.


        The seasons were changing in Brenham,but some things never change- thank goodness. Must Be Heaven Ice Cream Parlor is the perfect example. 

        We ate lunch there, and it was delicious. I had wonderful broccoli cheese soup.


        That afternoon we watched Trey play his heart out. His team didn’t win, but there was nothing else he could have done. He had a great ending to this year’s season.

        Back in Houston it was birthday party time for Mills. He is now 3. Next week his older brother will be 6 – another changing season.

Happy Birthday to Mills!
Wish the boys could have won their game but they certainly have much to be proud of ... especially Trey. AND he still has two years left to play. Can't wait for the next season when hopefully we'll be able to attend more games.
There is supposed to be a streetside cafe in Brenham that serves really good crab cakes. Did you tell me that??
Cut picture of John and Mills!

Ah, too bad they didn't get the win but they are winners with such a family to support them! I love those pansies! Come say hi :D

Does this mean that Mills will be bringing flowers to Bella when he comes a calling?
They won all right...just not on the scoreboard!
