Easter in Central Texas

Pin It

Friday morning we headed out to Enchanted Rock, a park near Fredericksburg, Texas where we camped out for the weekend.  This was the girls’ first camping trip, and they had a blast.

We met up with some friends, and Jeff led a night hike while the girls and I settled into the tent for the night.  Here’s Jeff (above) the next morning preparing breakfast.  We heated water for tea and instant coffee – a special treat!
Maggie really wanted to “climb up the big rocks” so after breakfast we headed out for a hike with the girls, and really went longer and higher than I thought we would.  They loved it!

You can see Lilly (above) has her fingers in her mouth.  She’s getting ready for a nap.

Jeff and I honeymooned near Enchanted Rock, and we’ve dreamed of bringing our family back for a visit.  What a great weekend!

    Okay, explain the weather to me. JoJo has on shorts, but you’re wearing a ski cap? Did it rain too?

    It looks like so much fun! It’s definitely proof that we can go camping some day.

    Great pics!

    What a great trip! I love to camp. Michael and I went to Enchanted Rock in November when we went to Fredericksburg. We loved it! Your girls are growing up!

    Teesa – it was cold that morning, so Jeff gave me his hat. Then it did warm up a little, but I didn’t want hat hair, so I left it on. And well, Jeff is much more comfortable in cold weather than I am so it could have been 40 degrees and he still wouldn’t mind wearing shorts.

    And yes, everyone – there is hope for taking your young kids camping. They love to be outside!
