It’s the Country Life for Me!

Last week we closed out the construction loan on the new house and were handed over the keys to our new home!  For our first overnight stay we took the grandkids and setup camp in the new home.  We had purchased a “mac-o-pedic” from Mattress Mac with a bed frame for the guest bedroom and that is what we old folks slept on.  On a previous trip to the site we had taken out the bunk bed frames and mattresses.  We had the grandkids sleep on the mattresses in their sleeping bags.  Because our “move-in” clean was scheduled for Monday we did not want to “fill” the house up just yet.  With the exception of the queen frame and mattress set and the 2 twin mattresses which we placed on top of the queen set we left nothing in the house on Sunday.

Each fall the town of Luling has a festival “Night in Old Luling” where any non-profit can set up a booth for fundraising.  We went last year with our grandson and it was a lot of fun so we wanted to make sure we went again this year.  The “town” of Leesville, TX also has their annual Country Fair the 2nd weekend in October so we decided to check that out during the day.

A cool front had rolled in Saturday morning and brought some much-needed rain to the area, but it did make it a challenge for the fair organizers.

Here are some photos from the Country Fair in Leesville.

After the Country Fair we went back to the house and played some board games, rode bikes up and down the hill, played in the sand (then took showers) and setup the electric train!

Sorry no photos from Night Out in Old Luling – they are on our phones as I did not want to carry the big camera all night.  The kids played games and won prizes.  We all went on the Zombie Hay Ride and that was a lot of fun – we had squirt guns to keep the zombies at bay!

Great fajita from the Luling VFD booth and played a little bit of bingo.

A full day in the country!

Can’t wait til all my days are country days!
