Eastbound and DownPosted: April 10, 2011
This weekend we headed to Nacogdoches, home of the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, to support Heath’s sister Megan as she performed in her senior recital. A skilled flautist, Megan put on quite a show for Heath, myself and more than a dozen other friends and family members that had us tapping our toes in rhythm and sighing in disbelief at both her stamina and melody making abilities. Job well done, Megan.
After being thoroughly entertained and blown away by Nacogdoches’ most skilled musician, we took a walk around campus to experience a day in the life of a Lumberjack.
Heath really liked the trees.
It turns out there is no such thing as too much purple at SFA.
After the recital comes the heart of any family gathering—in this case, a hearty dinner at Clear Springs Cafe.
…Followed the next day by a stroll with Gramps and Elouise at The Azalea Gardens.
The walk included a requisite tree ring counting, obviously. (This is Heath and Gramps we are talking about.)
As all adventures tend to do, this one ended too soon but was filled with fun and family and afforded us a much needed change of pace from our usual Austin antics.
