The weather this weekend was beautiful, and with all the wildflowers of Texas in bloom, it was quite a pleasant drive, even if we did get lost briefly and end up near College Station for some reason. We camped at Inks Lake near Marble Falls, which is known for its granite hills. A lot of nice hiking around the stream that ran through the park, even if all the church groups walking around were noisey and annoying. Maybe it's just us, but when you are visiting nature, you would think some sort of decibel level, oh, say below that of Wall Street during trading hour, would be understood. Apparently I was mistaken.
Favorite Quotes of the Weekend:
Amy: "YOU'RE DISTURBING THE WILDLIFE." (To a herd of middle-aged church group people - or maybe they were from eharmony or something. Equally disturbing.)
Marigold: "Can I have another mallow?" (after about 50 s'mores or so)
Janet: "We're not really lost, we're near College Station." (Oh brother. You put the 2 of us in a car together and we are guaranteed to turn from semi-educated independent women, to half-brained directionless morons.)
Overall, a very relaxing and happy weekend. If I can say one thing, it is that I think in the future on camping trips, we will be taking an air mattress, and double-checking to make sure we have taken brownies (a staple) with us. You can never forget the brownies that sustain our diet the entire weekend, and turns out we're getting too old to sleep on the ground. Lesson learned: The ground is hard, and inevitably, wherever you put down the tent, a stone will place itself right in the middle of your left boob while you're trying to sleep. Excellent.
I would like to thank Andrew for putting up with my sorry ass last night when I was exhausted and about as fun as the IRS (seemed fitting considering it's tax season).
Happy Anniversary Hunny :) You rock my face off.
