Camping {Inks Lake State Park}

we love camping
we try to go at least once a summer
the texas state parks really rock!
lucky us.. the best one yet is about an hour from our house
this beautiful sunset was the perfect ending
to a perfect first day at the lake
playing in the water with friends
setting up our tents, cooking dinner over the fire
the boys filled up water balloons for hours and hours and hours
boys got to take turns taking canoe rides
and fishing with the dads
brian and kim
alex and cooper spent some time digging around the campsite for crystals during the heat of the day
sites 250 and 251
best sites right on the water
perfect for two families camping together
of course we ate well
Friday night we had taco salad in a bag
Saturday morning breakfast tacos
then hot dogs on the grill for late afternoon lunch
then smores and more smores for dinner
Sunday morning kim made bacon and pancakes... yummmmmm
cooper had no trouble sleeping while camping
we do make it pretty comfortable for camping
air mattress, sheets, pillows, quilt, fans
no sleeping bags or hard ground to sleep on
we're certainly not roughing it :)
such a peaceful morning
waking up slowly to the birds chirping and the sun rising
we certainly found the beauty around us
I made up a scavenger hunt for corbin while he waited his turn to go out on the canoe again
he fell pretty in love with fishing and boating
and they are off to catch
conquer, destroy
slay it and bring it home
(they caught nothin') :(
but made great memories
alex drew a nice picture for our friend who loaned us the canoe
great job Alex!
little Dylan filled up a lot of water balloons too
this hungry boy
eating day old cold hot dogs :)

we had a great camping trip with the silverts
we are making this an annual tradition
can't wait until next time!
