Knight Camp 2009 is WILD!

Our 3rd Annual Knight Camp has come and gone...but oh how sweet it was! We picked the boys up last Tuesday morning and drove to Boerne, with a quick stop in Fredericksburg for lunch. We have some very dear friends who own a beautiful River house in Boerne and they graciously let us stay there and use it for base camp! I love camping out, but staying at the River house was a nice change...something about a nice clean toilet that wins me over every time! We played around the house, took a nice little nap and then headed to the river to throw some rocks and do a little fishing. The boys were both rewarded by lots of little perch and trout! Then it was back up to the house to cook some hot dogs and have a nice supper outside on the porch. We then did a craft, the boys took a bubble bath in the big tub and it was off to bed. The next morning, we woke up, dressed in our matching Knight Camp shirts and drove to the San Antonio Zoo! We had a fun day walking around looking at the animals, feeding some fish and taking lots of pictures. We then rode the train around the zoo before heading back to the river. We enjoyed fishing again, had a picnic supper and another craft. We made popcorn and read some new books about animals and just how silly they can be! It was a full day and we had tired little boys so it was off to bed. Thursday morning, we enjoyed breakfast at the house, played, did another craft and then it was time to pack up and drive home. We stopped back by Fredericksburg and went to Bud's favorite store...Dooley's Five and Dime! The boys each had five dollars to spend and lots of options! The boys took naps on the way home. We had such fun with them, they are so sweet and such good boys! Next year we will be joined by Will and so as tradition has it, we will go camping at Abilene State Park! Bud and Honey are already thinking about next year and what our theme might be, but one thing is for sure, it will be special because of three little guys!
