Summer Vacation

In mid July, the whole Hoosier clan and my aunt Susan took a vacation to the Frio River.

We stayed here, in the beautiful Oak Ridge Lodge.

The house was basically out in the middle of nowhere & there was no cell service. We did have wifi, which the kids used some to watch movies on Amazon, but basically, we were unplugged all week long.
And it was really nice!

So instead of watching TV & playing on the computer & our phones, we ...

played cards & board games

put together puzzles

flew kites

played with glow sticks

popped fireworks

celebrated Addy's birthday (a month late!)

roasted marshmallows

and made smores

caught giant beetles

and swam

 a lot!

The house had private access to the beautiful Frio River.

Some of the guys went fishing. Nick did not! Lol

and we all went tubing down the river.

Well except this guy. He didn't tube. He swam!

Susan put together a cousin's camp for the kids

where they did fun arts & crafts

like painting bird houses

and making paper hearts.

Again, since we were pretty much out in the middle of nowhere, we cooked almost all of our meals. 
These two were in charge of breakfast while us girls cooked dinner.

We did venture out to Concan one day for lunch at the famous Neal's Dining Room though.

I thought the food was just ok

But the view was great!

It was really nice to see the kids

being silly

and playing with their cousins.

And I really enjoyed getting to spend some quality time with my family!

This was a wonderful vacation! 
It was like camping, but in a luxury cabin!
Which is just my style of camping!
