|the train that runs by Ham's in Terrill, TX|
This past Friday we made our annual visit to Ham's Peach Orchard in Terrill. DH's brother and his wife are visiting from Houston and this is one of the places on their "must go" list. I took several pictures so you could see why.... but the fresh home-made peach and strawberry ice-cream is the principle draw.
They also have peach (and other fruit) pastry, pies, cakes, salsas, ciders, etc. We have a few favorite things we get each visit, but we also pick up a few things to try... and haven't been disappointed yet.
Strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries, fresh and in jars
|fresh peaches - 2 varieties|
fruit ciders (I love the peach cider!)
pastries, pies,cakes, and cobblers
and that first picture at the top is of the locomotive that runs on the tracks right in front on Ham's. We've been there when the train has stopped.. and we watched two people get off, pick up some fresh peach ice-cream cones, and head back on out. Didn't happen this time... and don't know if it's a normal practice, but thought it was an interesting event.
And those of you that are familiar with our cats may know that Tux and Julie are black and white DSH siblings that are an integral part of our house-hold. Well, these two are particularly fond of going into our office or computer room - mainly because we keep that door closed most of the time and a closed door is just too much for their curiosity. Well, today after our company left, I came in here to work on my blog and decided to let them in while I worked. They are in hog heaven. Both have curled up on the bed in here... just as content as can be.

And lastly, our youngest grand daughter (at 4) is a big fan of Spider-man. Well, DH's brother (who was visiting) brought her a Spider-man T-shirt and she decided that it made a great Spider-man nightie.
Hope you all have a fantastic week! It's supposed to be in the middle 80's for the next few days here... if the weatherman is right! For August in Texas, this is pretty wonderful.
