Memorial Day weekend we traveled to Mason, TX to camp with Nate's family and several other family friends. We left Friday morning, and of course had to stop by Cooper's for lunch. We got to Mason, TX sometime after 2 or 3 pm. The campsites we stayed at, City Park, were right on the golf course. The Rodeo arena, park and baseball fields were also in the same area as the campsites. We loved how open each site was and the amount of room you have to play. We were so glad that we brought Mason's Powerwheel Jeep. While the boys were hooking up the camper we took Mason to the park to play.

Not long after we were there it started pouring rain. So we all moved our chairs under the fifth wheel and just hung out and chatted. The rain lasted a good two hours or so. That evening we made salsa taco and just hung out with everyone.

Saturday some golfed and the rest of us went into the town of Mason to walk around. The weather was on and off with rain which made it hard to walk around a town square. Nathan, Mason and I did find this neat little bakery though. Mason had a cupcake and we sat and chatted with the owner and a young girl that competes in baking. So neat!

That afternoon we checked out the rodeo arena area and just played. That evening we had a cornhole tournament before supper. It was so much fun! I think we had 7 or 8 teams of 2.  The kids ran around looking for chipmunks while we played.

Sunday was Mason's birthday and the day we planned on going into Fredericksburg for lunch. We ate at Mamacitas and it was delicious. They put Mason in a sombrero and sang to him and gave him a bowl full of cherries....so he was happy! After lunch we walked around Fredericksburg, dodging rain and humidity. We went to a bakery that our best friend's aunt works at and she just happened to be working!! We all got ice cream and Mason also got a cookie. It was delicious and the atmosphere was great.

It poured the rest of the day/evening and wasn't showing any signs of letting up. So, Mason, Nathan and I decided to head home instead of waiting until the morning. I'm glad we did. It gave us all of Monday to hang out and get things done.

If you ever visit the Hill Country, I definitely suggest staying in Mason...or at least visiting it. It's so nice there!!  


  1. A trip to Mason for Mason's birthday! How sweet! :)
