Jason's aunt and uncle own an RV park off Lake Fork in the big town of Yantis. I say big loosely....I think I saw the population sign as 315. But I love East TX and love small towns. I couldn't wait. We took my dad's trailer and off we went! We got there and the first thing Sammi wanted to do was see the horses. Sorry, didn't get any pics of that. They have a lot of gorgeous horses! Even a donkey. There was a stray dog that kept freaking out Sammi, which in turn made the calm Joshua freak out. Fun!
After Jason parked the trailer, he came back to the house to get us and walked back with the kids while I followed in my car. His uncle came by and saw them walking and had them get in the back of his truck to take them the short distance. The kids were grinning ear to ear while they rode in the back.
After dinner, we tried to calm the kids down by putting on a movie for them. Thank goodness for portable DVD players!
This was to be Joshua's first time to sleep in anything other than his crib (yes, he is still in his crib...no judging!), a port-a-crib, or of course his car seat. I was a little nervous, picturing him falling off. He slept on the booth-type table where the table goes down to wedge between the booth seats, then the cushions slide down to cover all of it. It's actually quite comfy! Jason snuggled with him to get him calm. We even hedged our bets to see who would fall off first. Jason bet Sammi would, I bet Joshua would. Find out the winner later.
Here Sammi slept on the couch that works like a futon that the back slides down to form a bed. Then in the back was a queen size bed for Jason and I. Perfect set up for us!
Love this pic of both of their profiles and in hats.
After being there for over an hour or 2 (didn't keep count) and hearing Sammi said "I'm bored" "when will I get more fish?" we headed out to walk the land and go to other parts of the lake to just check out the sites. Sammi grabbed a bag for her scavenger hunt she wanted to do. I think all she got was a leaf, acorn, and branches. But she had fun!
Sammi danced and played in the rain for way over an hour. She just loved it! She kept us cracking up. I loved just sitting and reading. So peaceful.
Here Sammi is showing the rain water she got in the coffee cup. She put on Jason's rain hat backwards. Oh well.
After changing out of her soaked clothes, Sammi sat with me and just watched the rain. Loved it! Her shoes are STILL WET today.
Even though it was for just one night, it was by far one of the best, relaxing trips (with the kids!) we have had in awhile. It makes me want to by a trailer and lease a spot from Jason's uncle so that we can go more often!
