This week our friend Bill asked what we were doing Saturday after the VBS clinic. He then invited Marty and me to go with he and Denise to look at the largest field of Bluebonnets he's ever seen and asked if Heather would babysit their girls while we were out. Heather adores their girls and was all too eager to watch them and Marty and I were ready for a road trip.
The day of our road trip turned out to be simply gorgeous! As is always the case when we go road trippin' with Bill, I get totally, completely lost. He has a love of back roads and Texas history and is very familiar with both. But, he finds some of the most interesting places and loves showing them to us. I knew our final destination of the large bluebonnet field was somewhere near Weimar but had no idea how to get there and knew Bill would lead us there taking the long scenic route.
Bill was a very good sport about all the stops Denise and I requested he make for us to get a closer look or take pictures. They definitely share a love of old buildings with us and we stopped to photograph of few of those too....even crossing fences for a couple of them!
Upon closer inspection it appears to be an old store building and it sits out in the middle of nowhere.
from the back. Notice the grape vine embedded in the stone above the door.
I SO want to live here!!!!
I loved the Texas Paintbrush and Bluebonnets in the hay field!
Believe it or not, this is still not the field of flowers we were headed toward.
Gorgeous as this field is, it's still not THE ONE.
We scaled another fence (well, gate!) for a closer look at another building...
As you can see....cross the fence we did!

Anyone hungry for some Bluebell Ice Cream???
He wasn't curious at all and just seemed to hope I'd go away.
Perfect ending to a beautiful day!!!
Thank you, Bill and Denise for a great day!!!
