When i was a youngin i spent most of my summer weekends at a place in Concan, Texas called "Garner State Park"
I cannot tell you how many memories i have of coming here and swimming in the crystal clear Frio river, and roasting marsh mellows....even making new friends!! Some of my FAVORITE memories are of my time spent here and so i figured the boys needed the experience.
When we arrived we immediately got to work helping daddy with the tent.
And lil Landon
Here's the finished product....they were good lil helpers!
After setting up camp we had to get the fire going....Here are the boys in front of it.
Landon was soo amazed by it....
After setting up we decided to take a walk down to the river which was literally a hop skip and a jump from our site.
Here's a pic of me and the boys and the beautiful hill country
And Daddy and the boys
Jason bought the boys head lamps so they could explore in the dark.
They were REALLY excited to conquer this big rock!!
After our walk we headed back for some dinner....we had hot dogs (which the boys roasted themselves on sticks, and steaks.
When we (me and my bro) would go camping with mimaw and pipaw as kids my pipaw would always make bow and arrows for us outta sticks and string...i made sure to tell jay that he should do the same for the boys and boy did he!! They came out AWESOME and were a hit with the kids at the campground.
Landon was soo impressed with his fire he decided he needed to make one of his own, i can not tell you how cute it was watching him put it all together by himself...here he is with his creation!
And with the flash light to make it look like its burning real fire....he even pretended to roast a marsh mellow. isn't he a doll??
And what would camping be WITHOUT roasted marsh mellows!!
We woke up, cooked eggs bacon and sausage on the camp fire, and headed out for a hike.....we had a wonderful time and will be doing that more often for sure!!!
