{Star Spangled Weekend}

Hall Around Texas Camping at Mill Creek

Traditions are kind of my jam. Especially traditions around holidays. This weekend we packed up and headed about an hour East for our annual Fourth of July camping trip. We have been camping at this same RV resort since Mason was a baby. Same weekend every year, same group of friends, similar but different memories to be made. We spend the weekend swimming in an amazing pool, fishing or paddle boating in one of the 9 ponds, eating street tacos from the best little stand, hanging out for hours on end talking about everything under the sun, shopping at First Monday, lighting sparklers and doing everything we can to beat the Texas heat.

Each year I notice that this resort adds more activities for the kids and I love it. We weren't able to do many of them because of the dang heat {triple digits} but we were able to join in for the bike parade {another of our traditions} and t-shirt decorating. I will post tomorrow about the bike parade. Mason enjoyed the t-shirt decorating. It was his first time to tie-dye anything.

We put the GoPro through the ringer this weekend and came home with 25 different videos. It may take me a year to edit all of those, but I will eventually get them up on the blog.

I didn't take many photos of the last leg of our trip. Honestly, it was too hot, I was exhausted and sunburned. But, our memory tanks are full enough to get us through until our next trip! 


How was your Fourth of July weekend?

  1. Girl, your pictures just keep getting better & better. We had such a cool weekend, like 60's & 70's. I even had jeans on at one point. Luke & I were just talking about how we don't remember a 4th being this chilly. I mean we even brunched outside! Cash was in a fleece!
