B&B Cousin Trip~

We stayed here, in Winsboro, Texas at, "Thee Huble House".  This was the main house where we ate breakfast, both mornings. Grandma Sapp had seven children... Each one of her children were represented by someone, except Aunt Louise, none of her family was able to come.  Our rule from the beginning was no children, but Aubrey came this year and I think we amended the rule to only nursing children, under one...She was great on the trip and yes, I am totally biased to my grand daughters, but it is true, just the same!

Following are pictures of where we stayed...

This morning when I woke, I was wondering when breakfast was being served...It doesn't take long to spoil me to the good life!  William did bring me a cup of coffee, at least! lol





Loved this blue tub, but I wanted to redecorate just a bit, lol...




Reminds me of my doors and trim work...







Besides, the main house...They had this place, which we rented. It had six bedrooms  and the pool outback

 Nancy outside our place...



This is the back of the main house

Now, here are more shots of the grounds ...




A small cottage is also available.  Ima Hogg visited relatives here, as a young girl, and this was touted as her playhouse, on such visits...


It also had a pond and a large gazebo, with two ceiling fans, where some of us played games. I must have deleted some pics, somehow, when my memory card was full.  I will be posting some of the shopping, not as many photos as I would have liked, with the memory card problems, plus an awesome house, for sale, built in 1900.  I loved being with my cousins, and hope even more are able to come next year. We visited  Salado, last year, and are invading  Fredericksburg, TX next year, so start planning now, cuz!


Now, Prior Lives Party started while I was away, so you better join in and go to visiting with everyone!  It will be open until the end of July!

That is some gorgeous vacation eye-candy! I love all the details, especially the etched glass in that door!

The house is beautiful but y'all are the true beauties!
Our old home place is in Winnsboro outside of town. That little town (and Saturday night visits to the Sabine Valley Ice Cream Store) holds a special place in my heart.

How great is that! Wonderful setting. And even better is that you were spending time with members of your family. And doing it again next year. Happy for all of you.
