A week in East Texas

Even though the lake is kind of greenish-gray and gross, we all had fun playing in it.

Bethany had perma-grin that she could float on her own...what a big girl.

Fishing and walking (well mostly exploring) on the many nature trails all around us.

The boys found lots of neat creatures and this one was one of their favorites...a tree frog!
Not the coolest sand castle, but when your dealing with Texas sand it's about the best you can do.

The result of Bethany getting into my mascara. Doesn't she look beautiful?
In about 15-20 years she is headed to Wimbledon (and then secure our retirement :)

We had microwave smores one night and it was a delicious mess.
We all tried out archery and were surprisingly pleased with our performance. Of course, if we had to actually hit a moving target like animals to eat for survival, we would probably end up to be basically vegetarians.

We each got a turn on a canoe and paddle boats. The boys were convinced that we would see and alligator, but no such luck...phew!

Some other favorite animal that we saw everyday was woodpeckers and deer. The woodpeckers were actually very beautiful and we were able to get really pretty close to the deer.

The boys had taken over 10 pictures of all different kinds of bugs that they found from spiders to dragonflys to potato bugs. I chose this picture to represent all of them because it was cool how the green caterpillar really stood out on the red railing.
They also had a swimming pool which always brings a good time.

The Normans (along with David--Sara's fiance) came out one night and we celebrated Grandpa's birthday. The cabin we stayed in was only 2 hours east of Dallas..so the drive was nice, but we still felt away from everything!
Just a cute picture I had to add :)
