blanco state park

this weekend we went to blanco state park in the hill country
- btw- the hill country is what led us to camping in the first place -
i love our camper
- in the words of the most wise ferris bueller -
"if you have the means - i highly suggest you pick one up"
and head straight for the hill country



naturally - the blanco sp is on the blanco river...



we fed the ducks




and sat and enjoyed the sounds of the river and the perfect day



at the edge of the sp backed up to some property that had...


if you ask my kids - his name is lorenzo - and if you have sirius radio and listen to the kidz channel in the morning - you'll know that lorenzo the lama does not like to be touched -
"don't touch the lama"
i'm assuming this goes for the dentist too


here's our camp site - i'm sure you can tell that all the sitting by the river feeding ducks and looking at lamas is quite exhausting...


then it began to rain - which just means more different kind of fun...


apparently - we made an extra special impression on this guy because he followed us home


daddy tried to teach him to sit...


and that it wasn't polite to "flap" at people...


then it was time to go home - and we thought  -
hey! why don't we try this road.....


we saw this sign...


and this sign...


which led us to cross this...


but then we got to see this...


and a whole lot of this...



there's nothing like a back road!!!!

because we were in that vicinity -
we where able to stop and see the fam in r.r.!!!



- we had a great time and it was good to hang out
w/cousins aunts and uncles -

our next big adventure leads us to san antonio
- can't wait to spend time by that river either!!! -
