Fredericksburg

It had been years since my family and I took a trip to the hill country to visit the town of Fredericksburg and this past summer we decided we wanted to return to this charming little town which invites visitors to stay a while and enjoy some delicious food, shops, bed and breakfast, historical sites, and museums.  After driving several hours through the gently rolling hills and passing through some amazing inviting little towns we finally arrived to our destination.  The town of Fredericksburg is situated in the Texas Hill Country which people often visit to explore how life was like for early settlers in the region.  It was established in 1846 by immigrant German families and many buildings have retained the traditional German design of the frontier.  Once there, we checked into our hotel, then we made our way to the main shopping strip.
( Please ignore the date on the photos, my daughter was trying to set the correct date and ended up with a different date).

In the evening I took my little ones swimming while I sat down to watch my favorite series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman .




That's all for now.

Love,
Jacqueline
