Daddy and Mason decided to get a quick camping trip in before the summer ended. Mason had never really done an official "camping" trip with a tent and sleeping bag before, so he was very excited for this! We went to Guadalupe River State Park just North-west of San Antonio. We had a good time exploring paths, doing hikes, playing in the river, and eating lots of junk food! The public shower was full of large Daddy-Long-Leg spiders and Mason enjoyed playing with them (and he even made up a song that the whole bathroom got to enjoy).

We tried to rent Tube's and float down the river, but the place we went to was closed, so we decided to just swim and play. It was SO hot and Daddy had a hard time sleeping because it was so hot outside, but Mason did pretty good ontop of his sleeping bag. He did wake up around 6AM though.

We got to talk about the galaxy, the woods, skipping rocks, putting up a tent, and all sorts of fun boy things. Daddy did decide to take a short cut after it got dark last night to get us back to our tent (which was a bit scary), but we made it back okay! Mason kept yelling "Caution Daddy!" the whole way (something he learned from a 'caution' sign we saw).

The river we found.

A trail!

We found the river the first night and Mason was in hiking clothes...but he stripped down and jumped in anyway!
