Slow Times at McKinney Falls

Our apartment smells like a bonfire. We went camping yesterday, and took Ashen and his friend with us. We went to McKinney Falls which is nice and close; it’s only about 20 minutes away (but we still managed to miss our exit and double the length of the trip). Hah.

It felt really good to get away from traffic, technology, work, the apartment complex, etc…and spend some time in the woods. Even if it was a short respite, it was well worth it. We bought a yearly pass that gives us access to over 90 Texas state parks, so I’m hoping/planning to get our money’s worth. Here are some pictures I took on my iPhone of our brief adventure. Enjoy!

On the way home he mentioned something about how pathetic it was. I started laughing so hard I was crying. Poor man. I’ll let him get a real lantern next time (I don’t know why he puts up with me). ^^
