Everything is Bigger in Texas!

The Texas Pie Company ~ Kyle, Texas
Now here's a Piece of Pie!

You know how sometimes you've just
gotta see something to know
that it's REALLY BIG?
Well...





Everything IS bigger in Texas!!!

Like this great sign for the 
Texas Pie Company.
Next time I get out to Kyle to see our daughter
I hope to go there for lunch!
And every time we drove by
I wanted a piece of pie...
;)



Okay, except for this little rabbit...
An employee of the hotel we stayed at near Kyle, Texas had found this rabbit in distress during the intense heat wave and had saved him.  I am happy to report this little rabbit was doing well and had been with this young man for two weeks at this point ~ living comfortably on vegetables, water, kitten formula and grass.



Then there were the silos...

Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market at the Silos
were definitely huge!  A fun place to visit with swings out in the "backyard" for young and old alike to swing on and featuring a wonderful gift shop inside the main building.  You can't beat the place for atmosphere!




At Buc-ees an enormous gas station like I've never seen
before... I found these darling wooden crosses and painted birdhouses!

These houses for feathered friends aren't small either as you can tell from the birdhouses atop the green painted table.  I really liked the weathered paint look and the pressed~tin roofs and metal decorations!




Of course coming to Texas I wanted to capture a photo or two of this great state's iconic flag!  We kept seeing Big Texas Flags but somehow just missed being able to snap a photo. {Probably because we were whizzing by at 70mph... hmmm?}  I had set the shutter speed set to 4000 for this shot.   My daughter shot this one following the flags backwards behind her (to miss getting the window frame in the photo) as I was driving.  Here is Amy's photograph!  So glad to share this with you!





This beautiful American flag I also wanted to share...
In honor of the fallen in Dallas.





Big magnolias ~ had to share this one as I love magnolias having had a magnolia tree at our first house...
These faux blooms are also available at Magnolia Market.





And finally Big Smiles!
Our Yoda was happy to be with his mom and dad traveling everywhere we went.

Hope you've enjoyed this tour of
Big Things from the
Great State of Texas!


Happy Sunday to you and I hope 
you have a great rest of 
your weekend,
Barb :)
