Despite the almost vengeful tone to the title, today was rather pleasant.
My sis and I mozeyed back over to the Round Top road show this morning to visit my mom and get in a last look at the wares for the season.

Really good to see the area recouping after the persistent drought and widespread wildfires last year.
