Heading East into the Piney Woods

After a short break at home and a trip into Ford Service department where they decided we needed a software update (after all the F-250 is a rolling computer, isn’t it) we are back on the road. First stop is Tyler, TX to attend a formal social function for a grandson.  Luck is on our side as we are able to park in their driveway and have the benefit of family and friends close for a few days. Weather is on our side as it seems like spring and the northern part of the country is still experiencing snow and storms.  We attended the ball, visited with family, had some good meals,and attended a fund raiser for the youth at the Methodist Church.

On Tuesday we were able to get a spot in one of our favorite Texas State Parks.  Tyler State Park is located just north east of Tyler, TX.  So we made a quick trip to Fresh, a specialty grocery store by Brookshires, and picked up some goodies for the trip. Then after lunch we moved to the park. We have a large pull thru that is located in Big Pine campground and looks out to the woods and a large open space for the gilrs to enjoy. The redbuds are already in bloom and the dogwoods are right behind.  The warm weather is helping all the trees to leaf out quickly.  We will be here for a week and plan to get lots of paperwork done on several office projects. Storms in the area so we may get some much needed rain and a good chance to see if the cargo area has any leaks.
