Life with a middle schooler, a soon to be middle schooler, and an awesome husband of twelve years. Living in Texas with my heart in Cali, my home then, now, & always will be. No, those aren't my wedding photos. They are our ten year renewal photos.
We went camping this last weekend just ten minutes or so from the San Marcos outlets. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL with tons of greenery and huge trees directly on the San Marcos river. It was the guy who had invited us family's private property of 1500 acres. They are all tradesmen so it had a full kitchen, covered eating area, men's and women's bathrooms with two toilets in the women's which I almost took a picture of to scrap but forgot. Hehe. He has a boy who just turned seven whose birthday the camping trip was for. He also had some friends out there with another little guy who was celebrating his birthday as well, so we had two pinatas Saturday evening. The two of them provided all the meals and good ones at that - hamburgers and hot dogs Saturday night, sausage, potatoes, bacon, eggs on Sunday morning and sandwiches Sunday lunch. All we had to do is set up our tent and go! The boys fished, waded in the water, went out on the row boat and had a blast. There were a few other boys there to make six in all, which was great! Brando and I enjoyed the conversation, roasted marshmallows and s'mores (oh yeah the kids enjoyed those too : ), and I played board games with the girls while Brando fished with the boys. There was another young couple that are our age who came Saturday for dinner, pinatas, and cake, but didn't stay the night. It was fun to be able to meet them and hang out with them for a bit. We had such a fun and relaxing weekend and a camping trip that was more than anything I'd hoped for!
