Halloween in Bastrop, TX

As many of you know Jason had a class to teach/take in Bastrop for his IMET certification. (Fire Weather forecasting and such.) Well, we were here over Halloween and here is how I spent Halloween. Jason has the car to get to/from Camp Swift, so I get to hang out at the hotel. I thought I would be terribly bored, but it has actually just been nice to rest. (I got sick right before we left on the trip, so forced rest has really helped me feel better.)

The other day I walked next door to Blockbuster and rented a game for Jason's Nintendo DS. A little known game of Guitar Hero. Jason loves to play it on PlayStation, so I figured he'd enjoy it in the evenings for some down time after class. Amazingly, I do pretty well at it too!! Last night I actually got a 100% on one of the songs, meaning I got ALL of the notes played correctly! I know that doesn't seem like much to some people, but for me it's huge!

I also have been spending the time knitting for our niece. The newest addition to the family, Clara Noel Straub, was born on Oct. 29th (almost 30th if she waited about another 49 minutes). I have been working hard on finishing her gift from us. At this point I am about halfway done.

Jason and I had yummy Mexican food at Guadalajara. I found another restaurant that serves fried stuffed avocados!!! Mmmm! Jason had the fajita buffet and ate lots of yummy beef fajitas. We walked next door to WallyWorld to pick up a "treat" for the evening. Key lime pie for him, pumpkin cheesecake for me. On our way back to the hotel I had to stop and get a couple of photos of the sunset. It was too perfect for Halloween at dusk.

That's pretty much it for now. We leave Monday afternoon sometime after Jason is done with his class and the test on that day. We'll stop back in Austin for a couple of things before continuing home.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!!
