Camping @ Garner State Park

This past week we took off for the hill country! We camped for the week with our family in Garner State Park - lots of cousins, hiking, campfire cooking, swimming in the Frio River - it was a blast! It was hard to get back into the groove of things today after having such a fun relaxing week away, though! I think it's the start of another family tradition, too!

Here are a few pics of our week...

This is Mt. Baldy - we hiked to the very top our first full day there! Our campsite is right at the bottom - you can't see it for the trees, but it's at the bottom of the picture at the end of the road you can see.

We found this on the trek up - someone sat and played for a while!

We had fun in the water, too - a LOT - though we don't have many pics b/c I left my waterproof case at home. Trust me, though it was so awesome - especially on the day the temp got to 106 degrees! H.O.T!!

Sites book up 333 days in advance we were told - so we're planning our trip for next July now and hope to book our sites quickly. If ya wanna go, better plan it now! You won't regret it, either - it was a lot of fun! I even got brave and was jumping off the high rocks into the river. Emma & Aaron thought Mommy was pretty cool! I think Michael was pretty impressed with me, too! ;)

School starts back in two weeks so this was the perfect way to end our summer break! Lots of great memories!!! We still have the next two weekends booked, too and somewhere in all that we have to get school shopping done, too. I don't think things will slow down till we retire! LOL
