Seguin….El Ranchito…YUMMM!

Our third day began for me with a beautiful run in the State Park.  It felt great to stretch my legs a little before what I knew would be our longest day of driving.  After returning and motivating the family, we were packed up and heading out right about 9am.  We got back on 35 South and in about 20 minutes, we were in the great state of Texas:

But that was only the beginning, because Texas is a pretty big state.  I don’t know how my parents managed it with my sister and me doing this entire drive in one day, especially in the days before iPads and Nintendo DS.  It can make you go a little wacko, but we find ways of entertaining ourselves:

A few hours later though, we finally saw this:
