HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL- WE ARE OFF!


Every year since I was a little girl we have gone camping for Thanksgiving with a few other families. Yes, we do the whole shabang out there- including turkey, potatoes, pies, stuffing- you name it! But- it has always been such a nice time to get away from the "world" and your normal routine, and appreciate the beauty all around, and family and just what really is important in life! After I got married- the tradition kind of stopped as kids were going away to college, etc.... Last year, however- we started it back up again. We will be leaving here in just a few- and this year we will be going to Buescher State Park near Austin. I'm so excited! We are going to go canoeing, hiking, kayaking, have camp fires- and all that good stuff! My kids have already fell in love with going camping and they look forward to that and the 2 weeks at a summer beach house every year!

I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving and that you enjoy it to the fullest and that you will be able to be surrounded by loved ones:)

Moogs and Pumb and KATIE!! - we will miss you- and we need to have a Hopkins/Young camping reunion with everyone sometime!! Last year your mom and dad stopped by for a little bit at Enchanted Rock and we MISSED YA'LL!!!

I'll update with pics and stories when we get back on Friday!
