Serendipity Sundays ~ Great Kick off to Summer 2019

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

The day after school was out for Handsome Hudson his dad and and one of his friends and his boys left for a trip to Big Bend to camp out on a guys trip! The high desert is a special part of Texas they wanted to explore.

They took in sunsets, sunrises, hot springs, hiked to the window, found a tarantula, lots of centipedes, a jack rabbit but didn't find a wall along the Mexican border, a rattle snake or a bear!

My son John started this tradition with his son by taking a guys trip exploring different parts of our country. It's a great way to spend one on one time, making memories and learning about all our country has to offer. What a great way to kick off Summer 2019!

It's wonderful how Hudson and his dad do so many things together. That bond is going to be strong and sure for a lifetime. Thanks for sharing their latest outing with us - and yes, it is a great way to kick off summer.

The memories I have is family time at parks, whether we travel to visit one or just the local park. Those are the times that I remember most. Good tradition that is passed from father to son.
