What you do when it is 100 dgrees in Texas


What do you do when it is 100 degrees in Texas? Why go camping of course! And before you jump to the conclusion that I am nuts, there were bunches of folks with the same idea. We definitely had adventures. The first thing that happened is there was a mix-up with our state park reservation and they had no campsites with electricity. All booked up. (Did I mention that it is a hundred degrees here?) So we thought we would head to River Rd in New Braunfels and surely find a place to stay. Nope, not a thing. Meanwhile, my brother is on his computer at home getting us phone numbers of camping sites so we don't have to stay in a hotel. The good news is we found a place near Canyon Lake and it was great! (We got there last site available and manager stayed late until we could get there.) We had a fabulous time! We had a group of 15 and 5 of them were teenaged girls, and they were all on their periods and believe it or not there was minimal drama. The big deal for my 7yr old daughter was the makeover my 17yr old niece gave her. She was all dolled up for floating down the river, and 4 hours later she still had plenty of makeup on despite the fact she had her face in the water much of the time. My big drama was leaving my wallet in my mother's car and not realizing it until the day after she left with it. So I headed home yesterday with no drivers license and not cash and no credit card. We made it home just fine. (I met my mother for lunch today so I have it back.) Today was devoted to mountains of laundry (how do I have mountains of laundry when we spent 4 days wearing swimsuits?), but tomorrow I am quilting! Yipee!
