Every year Lee has the week between Christmas and New Years off, so the Sunday after Christmas (since I work on Sundays), we head down to Wimberley for a time of relaxation and unwinding. We made our annual trip to the Wimberley Trail of Lights with my mom and stepdad (Nana and Papa).

We of course made our annual trek to the outlet malls in San Marcos, while my mom took the kids to the children's museum in New Braunfels.
This year we knew that we wanted to go to Blanco like we did last year to pick up some yummy apple bread from the Deutsch Bakery. My mom had seen outdoor ice-skating the last time that she was in Fredericksburg and it isn't too far from Blanco, so we went to both! For lunch we stopped at Rather Sweet Bakery for lunch. It was very delicious!

The next day we ventured to Gruene with my mom and stepdad as well as my aunt Judy and uncle Gil. All of our Gruene pictures were taken by my very talented Aunt Judy.

On our drive back we were able to have lunch with our college friend Drew Weston and also see my other niece and nephew, Cassandra and Xander. We had a great trip!
