J3 had caught a grasshopper the day before and used it to bait his hook. That grasshopper had spent the night in a blueberry container and was kicking enough to get the notice of a good sized catfish. J3 was thrilled with his catch.
We rented two paddle boats for an hour. There was a lot of boat hopping while we were out on the water. We raced for a little bit. After about 20 minutes, the boys (me too) realized that paddle boats were a lot of hard work for your legs. We would not let them jump in the water from the paddle boats so we took the boats back early.
We accidentally missed a turn on our way to Mckinney Falls State Park. The boys were starving. We told them we would stop at the next place we saw and this was it.
It was beyond hot by the time we made it to our campsite at McKinney Falls. We set up our tents and then decided to make a grocery store run because we were out of water. D & I started complaining to each other about how hot it was and discussed if there was anything we could do until it cooled down. Yes there was. Just down the road from the grocery store was a huge movie theater. We took the boys to see the new Ice Age movie so we could enjoy the air conditioning. We had the entire place to ourselves except for four people who came in as the movie was starting.
As always D, here is the phrase list for this trip:
*Twix & Yogurt Kitties
*we don't bury our horses
*put that on the continent, it's too big for an island
*Frankentent lives through the magic of Gorilla Tape
*rain, of course
*Is that Tish singing?
*found a cold spot
*this fire needs a little more lighter fluid
*tic-tac-toe face, make a waffle on it
*the what what at the what what
*how many people have stuck their finger where a pig's brain used to be
*how many people can say they watched a live taping of a KISS concert in their theater room
*Dale, Dale, and the other Dale
*why did the football coach leave a message
* 3-2-1 Scavengers
*Mom to the rescue
Can't wait to figure out where we are going next year. Probably somewhere with rain.
