As Kynzie (my granddaughter) and I approach the 29th verse on our quest to memorize one verse from each book of the Bible, we sense the momentum that has built along the way. By now, we've clearly heard and understood, verse by verse by verse, God's plan and God's heart for his people. He has continually assured them of his plans for their lives, his principles of discipline for their own good, and his passion for keeping them as his own. In what feels like our final lap around the Old Testament, we are memorizing verses from
If it's really true that everything is bigger in Texas, Buc-ee's is one place that proves it.

I’m thrilled that they do!
I love Austin, and I love to share about what we've found to do, see and eat.
Since moving here, we’ve kept a running register of the restaurants we’ve tried. Would you like to guess just how many different names are on the list?
Everybody needs a favorite burger. In Amarillo, we frequented a family spot where you placed your order and waited until the familiar words rang out on the sound system for all the patrons to hear: Brenda, YOUR BUNS ARE UP. In Austin, when it's time for a burger (and somehow, we all just know when it's time, don't we?), we make a mad dash to the nearest P.Terry's Burger Stand. With 14 locations, we've never had to go very far for a 100% real beef, never been frozen, cheeseburger on a wheat bun - with real Idaho potato-fries,
