Serendipty Sundays ~ Family Pilgrimage

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

I'm blessed to have such a caring family. This Thanksgiving was the first shared with out Paw Paw. The week-end before Thanksgiving we checked into Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop and the weather was perfect. It was warm enough to swim, fish, give archery a try, bean bag toss competitions and enjoy evening bonfires and cooking 

Handsome Hudson tried his hand at archery and couldn't get enough of it!

 

 

Beautiful Beckett caught the first fish but was not about to touch that catfish!

 

 

Taking some time off and spending it together was perfect to get in the mood to celebrate Thanksgiving. Many years Paw Paw enjoyed coming here at Thanksgiving time. We could feel his presence and glad we took the time for the pilgrimage back to reminiscence.

Hello Dorie - it seems as if you had an ideal plan to include Gene as well as honor him with your family get together.  The Michael J Fox quote you included is also a good match for this post.

Your photos are a testamento to fun family times, Dorie.  Archery was one of my favorite activities when I was a kid.

Hi Dorie- you may be getting tired of hearing this but you most definitely are blessed. I am so happy that you were together for some relaxing time at the Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop.
