What to do in Kerrville, Texas

I love working from home as a real estate agent and being my own boss. One of the benefits is that I can do errands or go on business trips and drag my family along anytime during the day or the week. With 3 kids, my wife can never get enough time to herself, so whenever I need to drop off fliers, stick a sign in the yard or take pictures, I bring one of the rugrats with me…otherwise they look like zombies from watching too much television:

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a networking event in Kerrville, Texas for Active Rain Bloggers. You can read about some of those experiences from some of my colleagues below (let me know if you blogged about this and I’ll add you to the list):

Carl Winters – New Braunfels, TX

Ricki Eichler – Kerrville, TX Don Eichler – Kerrville, TX

Liz Carter – Katy, TX Debra Brooks – Huntsville, TX

Alan Kirkpatrick – Austin, TX Gail Tassey – Austin, TX

Jason Crouch – Austin, TX Trey Thurmond – College Station, TX

Judi Morgan – San Antonio, TX Tom Plant – Murrieta, CA

Soooo, funny name like “Kerrville” + minivan = Roadtrip!

We piled into the van and brought along reinforcements to help watch the kids: Claire Shiramizu, who is ao sweet 9 y.o. family friend who loves to play with Chloe.

We went up on Friday morning and stopped by Wildseed Farms to check out all of the pretty flowers and ate a ton of free samples:

After lunch at the Peach Tree Restaurant in Fredericksburg, we headed up to a place called Y.O. Ranch. They overbooked our tour, and to make it up to us they arranged a private tour JUST FOR US! The experience was awesome! This is the largest working ranch in the nation and they have all sorts of animals on the ranch. We drove around in an old rickety school bus and fed some animals and afterwards ate dinner on the ranch, cooked by a “rough around the edges, I don’t like to smile” cook.

I even kissed a girl named Carlita and Autumn didn’t even get jealous at all: My Girl Carlita

The next day, Autumn took the kids to the Children’s Museum in San Antonio while I spent the day networking with my new found real estate buddies from Active Rain. They later joined me for dinner before we headed back to Georgetown, Texas!

Yes, you can have a life with 3 kids, three and under, and with a ton of grace from the man upstairs. God protected us during the whole trip and nobody got thrown out the window:) Most of this was even tax deductible! Thanks Uncle Sam!

    Edward, It was such a blessing to met you and your family at the Bandera AR get together. It was so nice to meet all of the Rainers there and hear about what they are doing in the real estate business. Some very good contacts that should help market some of our listings. The pictures of you and family were very good and your son made a very good speech. See you next time.

    Edward, it was so great to meet you (My Hidden Gem in the Rain). You have a beautiful family and we all fell in love with the children. Your son was so brave standing up to introduce himself to all of us!! Looking forward to seeing you at the next Texas Active Rain Gathering!!! Oh, my post is up — I linked to everyone’s posts — I’ll go add yours to it. :)

    Hello Edward – So nice that you shared your story of travels thrugh the Texas Hill Country with a stop at Bandera to meet some of your AR friends before heading back to Georgetown. You and your family had quite a weekend.

    Ceil and I both said you have to be young to be able to do what you did; at our age we wouldn’t even think of it. Just the day trip to Bandera wore us out. Glad we got to meet you and your family.

    Now when we write our blogs we can certainly know for sure that the person on the other end of that blog is everything we know that person can be. Like Judi said, part of “Our Circle of Friendship.”

    Excellent Post!
