I Would Eat Only Bacon.

I give you The Brick Store. We drive all the way here for the bacon. The pepperoni is good, too. They have their own soda, but it's made with corn syrup instead of sugar, so that's disappointing. Still not a bad taste, especially the Sarsaparilla soda.

Mmmmm. Bacon.

At the Hop is a cute ice cream store next door. It's pretty basic in terms of the offerings, but I love the decor and it's a nice treat for the girls who have ridden in the car for an hour plus for...bacon.

She finished before Fiona. Gadzooks!

Some pictures of the inside:

It was a gorgeous day.

So we checked out the covered bridge:

The garage sale we had last weekend went very well (except for someone stealing 3 containers of earrings/rings/bracelets out of our garage while we were in Bath...) and this is my last week of work. We're still trying to pin down a date for the moving people to pack up our stuff and then tote it away. We also need to figure out where exactly we'll be staying on our great road trip to Tejas. We had one more family look at our house yesterday (making the grand number of showings up to...two). My car needs regular tires (goodbye forever, snow tires!) and a tune-up, and hopefully we'll have time to get Doug's car tuned-up. No word yet on when his car will be all fixed up. We're still waiting on money from the first car accident.

I think once we get settled into the new house (hopefully, that will go smoothly), I will sleep for a week.

Live Action Update! Looks like the day we leave Vermont will be the 18th. The movers actually need two days instead of one day to pack, and one day to load. This makes it a little close...it will take us 4 days to get to Texas, and Doug would start the next day (so we drive the 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st...and he starts the 22nd). We just have to drive 7-8 hours a day and it should work out. I think we could have them come earlier, but then our stuff would be in storage. I'm not in love with that idea, and really, it will be nice to stay here as long as possible to see everyone we want to see before we leave.

WOOOO!! I love live action updates!

Love the pictures from Bath!

I love places like that where there isn't a single square inch of wall space left that doesn't have an item on it!

C'mon, you know Sophia is up for an hour drive for bacon. I would drive two.

Here's hoping you get in early.

As we're doing our own packing, the whole house is in "storage." I would say you'd be surprised at what you can live with, but YOU have two little ones. I shall say nothing!

Git down here woman!

Lovely photos! Can't wait until you get here! (But we're sorry about our governor - really sorry)

I love how you can't see the walls, either!

Yes, ready to be amused and aggravated by Texas politics. Bring it on!
