After school on Friday we headed straight up to Lake Livingston State Park.
Where we joined nine of our mates and their Mums and Dads for a big camp out.
the weekend got off to a good start with a roaring fire
And late-night flash-light fun
It was a bit chilly in the morning
but after hot chocolate and coffee
farm fresh eggs
And a visit to “my pee tree”
We were off to activity #1
Horse riding = coolest thing EVER. My horse’s name was Sissy so the wranglers called me Sissy the whole ride. It’s a good thing none of the boys had to ride her!
And look! No lead!
We went on a beautiful forest trail.
When we got back from our trek the little kids were allowed to have a ride too. Rafa was equally impressed with Sissy.
See… all smiles.
The afternoon started with the highlight of Rafa’s weekend. The ride to the Marina!
The Marina was pretty cool too
the park was fun
And the ice-cream hit the spot
Likewise the power nap
We played a few games
Dug a few holes
Then as the sun was starting to set we walked over to the cove for a spot of evening fishing
Which we now know means you sit down holding your rod
Some of the group were successful…
Some of us, not so much, but we all had a great time!
Needless to say, back at camp it was burgers and hotdogs for dinner
Before the evening shenanigans
and partying began again
Sunday morning was just as chilly as Saturday
But nothing pancakes couldn’t fix
And before we knew it the sleeping bags were folded up, tents were being pulled down and cars were being packed
A few quick group photos
Of all 24 of us together (that includes the dog)
And we were off home. Thanks to all our friends who made our big camping weekend so much fun!
