Today, I drove through Bastrop, Texas to take my kids to a football game. It's a regular Saturday morning ritual for us, but Bastrop is about an hour and a half from where we live, so it's a bit more of a drive that we usually make. I had forgotten that just a few years ago Bastrop was devastated by a wild fire that destroyed nearly 35,000 acres, including thousands of homes. As we got close to Bastrop, I noticed the smell of burnt leaves, and then I started to see woods that were full of burnt trees, still standing. I remember stories of burnt trees being milled to build new homes, but the last time Bastrop graced my local news, it was a pic
I just took 8 kids on a road trip that spanned 7 states! 6 Hotel Rooms! 2,000 miles! Tons of smiles! Posting a few of my favorite scenery pics in the next few days. I only came home with 1,418 pictures! LOL
