{Weekending // Glen Rose TX}

Gracious! I have been neglecting this blog something fierce. I blame it on Life. It's happening so fast lately. Disney put me 8 days behind on everything...then when we got back we hit the ground running with Tball and a tournament...then my co-worker was out of the office for basically 2 weeks and I had to cover for her...then we went out of town for the weekend and here we are at Tuesday 6/16. Oh and we will be out of town again this weekend. ha. I will catch up one day. But ya know what? Even though it's been crazy it has been enjoyable. I have loved all of the family time lately. 

Anyhow, this past weekend we went to Glen Rose, TX with the family on a camping trip. We had a complete blast. We went Friday after work and got there around 6:30 pm. It's only about an hour drive from us, but we hit some traffic on our way out. We hung out at the campsites for a while and then made our way over to the river & Big Rocks Park. We were amazed to see how much water was rushing through {last time we were there it was basically dry} and how high the water had gotten with the recent flooding we had in Texas. We didn't really go prepared with swimsuits, but that didn't stop us from getting in the water. Most of us only went about ankle & knee deep, but Mason and Nathan got all the way in! Mason was in heaven. He loves the water.

Saturday morning we got up and went to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. We got there basically when they opened in hopes of {1} beating the crowd, and {2} the animals being out and about before it was entirely too hot. And, it was a success on both accounts! We were able to drive through and spend as much time as we wanted in each area! And the animals were hungry so they were coming right up to our truck! Mason loved every minute of it. 

After Fossil Rim we went and had brunch at a little diner there in Glen Rose and back to the campsites to regroup. Then a group of us went to downtown Glen Rose to hit the antique shops. I found an amazing turquoise frame that I have crafty plans with!

That evening we hung out at the campsites and left right before 9pm because Nate had to work Sunday morning. Nate went in super early so that he could come home early. We spent the morning cleaning the house, doing laundry and grocery shopping. That late afternoon we had a friend and her 3 little babes come in from Houston to visit! Such good times!!!

 How was your weekend?


  1. I love Glen Rose and Fossil Rim is great for people of all ages! I'll need to go find that spot in the river though, these hot days are getting to me, haha. That little girl with the glasses is so stinking cute!

  2. Woah, Fossil Rim looks SO COOL!! That'd be something I'd want to do every weekend!
    How adorable are Mason and his little friend in his truck. So sweet.

  3. You guys always do the funnest things! And don't even worry about the blog. It will be here when you get back. But these moments... you can never have them again. I've been trying to remember that too!

  4. I love Glen Rose! We went to Big Rocks about 3 years ago and there was absolutely NO water.

  5. OK!! I want to go!!! I loved following along via Snapchat! The river, the animals, I love it all
