This weekend was my 22nd year to be married to my lovely wife. I thought we needed to at least do something nice, just the two of us. Being we spent all summer spending time and catered to the kids, taking them everywhere we could and being a family, a romantic getaway was in the cards so we did it.
I can say is was worth it. If you are within 4 to 6 hours of the little town I would go. Being that I am a history buff, but more so on Texas history this was the place for me. We took several tours and even did a ghost tour. Yes, believe me if you want too, this place is haunted and I can tell you one thing, they aren't lying.
The town is set up just for tourists with around 50 bed and breakfasts in old Plantation homes, dozens of antique shops in the historic downtown, bayou boat tours, romantic carriage rides and at least four museums. Needless to say we couldn't see it all in one weekend. It was a Texas getaway with a touch of South Louisiana thrown in, loved it.
Now back to everyday grind for a while. The kids started school today, the oldest has been back to collage for a week now, the house is quite once again.
