{Weekend Wrap-up // Pt 2 // Cleburne State Park}

Back at ya with a part 2 to our weekend post! On our way back from Glen Rose on Saturday we decided to stop at Cleburne State Park {the perks of being a state park pass holder - no entry fee!} in Cleburne, TX. We have camped there a couple of times and really enjoyed it. We found a nice little cove where Nate could fish, Mason could take a dip and I could take some photos! It was the perfect little secluded area that let in just enough of that sweet golden sunlight!

And then Mason got silly and asked me to take this next set of pictures! I have absolutely no clue what he was doing, but when he asks me to take pictures I happily oblige {and snap as many as fast as I can}.

And then he started practicing some of his karate moves! He lives, eats and breathes karate these days. It doesn't matter what he's playing with, Legos, Batman characters, etc, they are doing karate. And he's stuck on this show called Kickin' It which is also all about karate/martial arts!

After our karate show we moved on to the next spot...the boat dock area. They built a new dock so Mason and I hung out on that while Nate did some more fishing. It was shaded, but the sun was starting to set so it was shining in from the sides. But, we didn't mind. We told knock knock jokes and laughed until our sides hurt.

Once we finished in this area we hopped back in the truck and drove around the camping areas. We were amazed at how many people were actually tent camping. Those are some brave souls sleeping in this 100 degree plus weather!

We had the absolute best day and made so many memories that will last for a lifetime!
