We are family!

I went to a family reunion this weekend. We have it every year in Frederickburg, TX and always have quite a bit of fun. This usually involves some shopping, winery visitation, game-playing, a music jam session, and, more recently, we have added a hike up Enchanted Rock. Enchanted Rock is a big hunk 'o granite bedrock and is around a million years old. The hike to the top is less that half a mile, but try doing that at a minimum 45 degree angle. Check it out!
(L-R) Daniel (brother), Jarod (cousin), Casey (cousin), Courtney (girlfriend of Casey's brother), Katie (aunt who brought me Italian yarn), and Me (yes, I do need a tan, don't I!)Here's a shot on the way down. Much easier on the way down, but what a view! It was very foggy and misty on the way there, but it cleared a bit once we started.

I also had a wonderful discovery. About 10 years ago, I found some Key Lime Fudge and it was wonderful. I am a big fan of anything Key Lime flavored. Over the past 10 years, I have looked high and low for more of it, but to no avail. So what did I find last weekend.....

What?!? You expected to see a picture? Yeah, like I have that kind of self control. But I did stretch that 1/4 pound of fudge as long as I could....which was about 4 days.

Looks like a fun time!

Mmmmm... key lime fudge. Hmm. I have some frozen key lime juice (bought a bag of 'em, needed the juice of half for a pie, can't throw the rest out). Hmm.

Nice mountains, too. It actually looks a lot like upstate New York.

I have never tried key lime fudge, but it sounds heavenly! Sounds like you had a great time at your reunion.

I have visited there before! And it is my geologic duty to point out that I think the rock is a Billion years old :)
