Spring Break fun

Besides just hanging around the house and sleeping kind of late, we did a few fun things!

We visited the Log Cabin Village in Fort Worth. This was a lot of fun for all of us!
Here are the kids pumping water from the well.

Now tendin' to the crops!

The Parker cabin where Mr. Parker lived. Very interesting...Parker county was named after him and he was the uncle of Cynthia Ann Parker. This is where they brought her after she was kidnapped away from the Comanches. She died of a broken heart after that. The chair in the corner was one that Sam Houston claimed each and every time he visited the Parker cabin. He was a good friend and he and Mr. Parker fought in the War for Texas independence together.

Dress up time!

B took this picture of his mom and dad. Pretty good!

Later int he week we had planned to go camping. Unfortunately, there was a burn ban in all of Texas. No campfire, no open fame burgers, no SMORES for crying out loud!!!!
So, we decided to go camping at the lake house. Still a burn ban, but we had a better chance of getting by with a little old fire!!

Here are Paul and B getting sticks ready for the fire.

Smore time!!!! Paul got caught eating the ingredients!

Cait with her marshmallowless smore. She just wanted the cracker and the chocolate!

Exploring with headlamps!!! Such a boy!

We made it! We slept out in nature and lived! Here's my honey the next morning.

Cait was the only bear we saw while camping. She is a bear only in the morning though. Otherwise, she's as sweet as they come!

We had a lot of fun and are already looking forward to the next trip!

Looks like you guys had so much fun! Maybe we could all do this one weekend (at the lake). That way I can go inside if "roughing it" becomes to much for me! =)
