Wimberley Wedding - Day 3
Collin and I woke on our last day in Wimberley exhausted from the night's festivities. Luckily we got to sleep in to try to regain some of our strength. We were hungry and looking for some grub. We got ready, packed up the car, and took one last look at the magnificent view from the back porch.
After parking the car we saw a path down to the creek and wanted to take a look. The path ended at a beautiful part of the creek and Collin began skipping rocks and pretending he was Rocky Balboa heaving heavy logs around.
Heading into town we actually made it in time for the breakfast menu (yes!). We strolled into the Cypress Grill again and asked for a big table on the patio. The cousins were planning on joining us as well. We gathered up about four tables with miss-matched chairs and ordered coffee. I jumped immediately into the menu to figure out what I wanted. While waiting for the rest to join us I decided to order pancakes and breakfast sausage. Collin wanted an omelet topped with spicy chorizo and a side of breakfast potatoes. I waited as long as I could for the others to arrive but ultimately had to call the waiter over as I was famished. While we waited for our food parts of the extended family arrived and we all got to talking about the wonderful time we had at the wedding and catching up more on each others lives.
Food arrived and I dug right in. My pancakes were sinfully sweet and tasted exactly like a sugary funnel cake. Collin's omelet was awesome and I definitely had a few bites. We stayed talking on the patio as the other family members trickled in for over three hours. It was nice being able to relax and enjoy each others company now that the wedding festivities were over. Everyone decided around 2 o'clock that it was time to head back home. We said our lengthy goodbyes, exchanged hugs and kisses and headed to our cars.
Collin and I stopped into a shop on our way out which strangely enough will always be remembered as the crazy cat store. There happened to be quite an abundance of cats around which I quickly decided to snap a few pictures of. Much to my displeasure the store owner sidled up to me and announced the each picture cost $5! And let me tell you, these cats were anything but cute. They were just so freaking odd that I had taken a few pictures. Collin, overhearing this exchange, quickly left leaving me standing there not knowing what to do next. Seeing that Collin had left me stranded to deal with the odd situation (much to my amusement) I grabbed my wallet and asked if she had change. Luckily she indicated that the money would go to charity - hopefully it would. I will keep that picture forever as it cost me 5 freaking dollars. It's a hilarious anecdote that I have already used on more than one occasion.
Walking back Collin and I spotted our dream car - the Corvette Stingray. My goodness it was pretty. Red leather interior. Black exterior. Umm, so gorgeous. We snapped a quick picture. We hopped in (our own) car and started the drive back home through the winding roads surrounded by shady oak trees. We were craving a treat so we decided to stop in at a Bastrop establishment - Roadhouse. When we pulled up to the packed parking lot we decided to sit on the porch. We quickly ordered a root beer and coke float and enjoyed the weather.
The floats were amazing because anything made with Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream is fantastic. We slurped the last bit of float from our cups and headed back to the car. The rest of the drive home we were eager and ready to see our pup. We picked Gwen up from our friends house and, as always, she was more excited to see Collin. The rest of the night was spent lounging on the couch trying to rest up for the week.
One for the books. A perfect wedding weekend.
