At the end of the week we headed to Huntsville State Park to meet up with Amy & John and many friends. It was nice to just relax and hang out. We did a few crafts, ate great food (Thanks Boyers and Knies) the kids participated in a fishing clinic and just took it easy. We did check out the local wildlife. A bit scary to be that close to a crocodile. We had perfect weather-chilly evenings and mornings and warm during the day. We even got to build a fire since we had gotten rain and the burn ban was lifted. And at the end we used confetti eggs to "encourage" the kids to help clean up the campsites. It's too bad reality and its schedule was waiting to start the next day.

That looks like so much fun! I'm excited to get to go camping with my fam at the end of the spring semester. We're going to Yellowstone!! :)

FYI - crocodiles don't live in Texas only alligators ;)

Where was your Father, the fisherman, at the casting clinic? It is a good thing our mission is going so well or he might have been in the middle of those casting. Looked like bundles of fun. Gramma missed the fun of being there.I would have loved it with a chair! Next year! Blessings, Gramma
