On Friday night, we went out to eat. There were two groups......... Mexican food or steaks! We went for the steak, and there were 11 of us. We traveled about 10 miles to The Holman Family Steakhouse in Holman Valley, TX. Here are some pictures..........
There will be a second post on this weekend tomorrow!!

We left Lake Somerville on Thursday at about noon, and headed to the Colorado Landing campground in La Grange, TX to meet for a weekend rally with the Lone Star Allegro club. More on that later........................
The park itself was very nice and well-kept. Here are a few general pictures:

We spent most of Friday and Saturday with the Boomers....... eating and visiting. Here are a few pictures. The first shows one of the ladies, Kye Ferguson, who stood on her feet for about 4 hours making 80 fresh egg rolls for the dinner:
....... and then her husband, doing his thing (tasting!!)
Here's a picture of the official Margarita maker doing her thing..........
Others just ate and visited.............
One of the "planned" events of the weekend was the 'second childhood' birthday party for one of the members...... Hamie Wright. He had managed to get a motorcycle and ride it from Virginia to Texas (or something like that), and so the rally leader decided to harrass him with a party. He was good natured about it as he unwrapped all of the kid's toys!
On Sunday afternoon, Patsy and I went to checkout another couple of local Texas State Parks. Here are some pictures from the Fort Parker State Park............
On Monday morning, we broke camp and headed south to Lake Somerville State Park, where we plan to spend a few days until the Lone Star Allegros rally in La Grange, TX next weekend.
We also drove into the town of Glen Rose, TX, near the park. They have a small park with a shallow water area, and a lot of rocks. Matthew loves rocks and will like climbing here. Mom had better bring a lot of knee bandages!!Also, just down the road from the state park, they have a new attraction that the kids may like. We are going to let Mom and Dad make that decision, and then they can take them!!
Part 2 of this weekend's post will follow!
