Camping At Garner State Park!

So, I don’t particularly like camping. Why go sleep on the ground when you can sleep in a bed? Bryan has never been camping and he has no desire to EVER go camping. So, Tawni made it her mission to make sure my children get at least 1 camping experience  in their lifetime!

Our first day was mostly a travel day. We packed up the car then had lunch with Bryan before we drove over to Garner State Park. Once we got there we all pitched in (some more than others) and set up camp! I felt like I was in an alternate universe when Tawni made dinner! No one ever cooks for me so it was a real treat!!!  We were there as her guests and she treated us like royalty!

The next day we charted out our hiking course and chose a “moderate” hike. I decided to wear my weight vest even thought Tawni thought it looked like a bomb vest! Turns out we started on a moderate hike and ended up on a “hard” hike on our way down.

We found a few caves along the way but Tawni and the kids didn’t venture too far into the caves since most of them were inhabited by spiders!

After our hike we had lunch and cooled down in the Rio Frio! For it being over 90 the water was VERY Frio!


Pedernales State Park

Tawni came to take the kids and I camping and low and behold both kids got an ear infection days before we were supposed to leave. So, we hung low for a few days and and took a 1 day excursion to Pedernales State Park before our big camping adventure.
*All children had recovered when we took this day trip!

We had so much fun exploring, climbing and throwing rocks into the water!


Life In Texas!

We have been living in Texas for over a year now and we couldn’t be happier! There’s nothing more satisfying than being exactly where God wants you! God has definitely revealed to us that Texas is our new home [for now] and that he has great things in store for us!

I’m going to slowly try to catch up on posts and add some of the photos we collected over the last year or so. Getting here has definitely been a journey for us! However, I wouldn’t have change anything!
