February is speeding on by and Spring Break is right around the corner. What does that mean for the Missy Jane family? ROAD TRIP! My lovely little ladies and I absolutely love jumping into George (my suburban) and hitting the road for however many miles we can mosey in a day or two. We head up highway 290, stopping in Chappell Hill for lunch (mmm, sausage…) then on to Brenham to tour the Bluebell ice cream factory. We can probably all guide the tours by now, but the free scoop of ice cream at the end makes the history talk worth it. If it’s just a day trip we head back (stopping at Chappell Hill again for dinner). If we have time then a walk through Washington-on-the-Brazos Sate Park is added to the agenda. We do this every year.
Right now I’m in the planning stages of our trip and trying to decide how much time to spend on the road. I’ll be on vacation from work and the temptation to just sit somewhere and read will be overwhelming. Why don’t I have auto-pilot in my SUV yet? Maybe I can convince my hubby to do all the driving this year…or not. Well, they don’t make audio books for nothing.
This year I think we might take a few days and stay overnight in the hill country. There are just too many photo opportunities for me to pass up while at least two of my four lovely daughters are still willing to pose. But, don’t worry my precious readers. While the girls are gallivanting through the wildflowers I’ll be daydreaming of the next shape-shifter, vampire or hot-bodied hero to write up when I return.
