If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Black and White Wednesday- RUDY'S

Our family has a small obsession with the greatest barbecue restaurant ever- Rudy's.  Trent and I went their frequently when we were newly married in San Antonio.  Over the years we have collected a lot of Rudy's cups, t-shirts, and hats.  The name Rudy's is found in almost every room of our home.

In 2000, we moved to Waco where there was no Rudy's.  I had to wonder if God would really send us to a place that didn't have a Rudy's.  :)   Then it happened.  Waco got a Rudy's and we were at peace again.  Trent had a favorite Rudy's hat that he wore all over the world.

So back to my story.  In 2007 we moved to south Houston where again there was no Rudy's.  I know! Tragedy!  But I have good news.  It took almost 5 years but we have be reunited with our favorite place to eat.  Yes! Webster Texas got a Rudy's Barbecue.  We went to the friends and family opening tonight. Pictures from that to come. 

the long road
