I know that I am a little behind and feel like I am playing catch-up with the blog. No one else may care to read these, but since I mainly keep the blog to print into yearly books for my family history, I am going to catch up.
Over Memorial Day weekend, we decided to take a camping trip. We headed out Friday after work to Fairfield Lake State Park, about 2 hours south of here. It was a beautifully wooded area, and the campsites felt very private because of it. It seemed as if we were the only ones tent camping, everyone else had campers, so we practically had the bathrooms to ourselves. Katie loved to play in the dirt/sticks/leaves whenever we would put her down.
As a result, she spent most of our time there in her playpen, which did not make her very happy.
The first night, our air mattress sprung a leak. It was not a good night. We headed into Palestine on Saturday and bought a new one at the Walmart. Then we headed over to the Texas State Railroad Depot. They were having a huge military event for Memorial day. It included helicopter rides, but at $80 a person, we just opted for a picture.
