For Thanksgiving, Leo and I decided to go camping.  Really, that was the best decision ever, even though we had five invitations to go to other people's houses for Thanksgiving.
The beginning of last week was horrible.  We had major plumbing issues and I was so upset, because I wanted it fixed right away so it would be sure to be taken care of before Thanksgiving and our landlord was trying to fix it himself.  Eventually after two days, he did call a plumber.  But I was extremely stressed out and well, honestly, hysterical.  I really miss being pregnant and calm.  Sigh. But all was finally fixed on Wednesday and we made it on our camping trip.  And for the first two days it was so incredibly relaxing.  The kids weren't fighting, they weren't complaining, and everything just went so well.
How can you tell we're in Texas?
The last day of the trip the kids were a bit more back to their normal selves and me back to my normal snapping at them.  Oh well.  It was nice while it lasted.
We stayed at Buescher State Park and spent one day hiking around Bastrop State Park.  Bastrop basically burnt down in a forest fire last year, so it was kind of an eery landscape.  Fun nonetheless.
I love this picture of Ana!

Nicolas started being fussy on the day I started packing for camping.  He's never been fussy before but he was the most fussy he's ever been during the trip and since we've been back as well.  And he hated being in the baby carrier.  Errr... But at least he was happy during the night.  That was very much appreciated.

Sebastian would ONLY drink from Ana's water backpack thing.  Whatever it's called.
I'll post more photos from the trip tomorrow.  Tonight I need to get to bed.

Ana looks too old. You should tell her to knock that off. Those pics of Lando and Leo were priceless. On top of that, Elena's hair looks like Emeline's, only less orange. Love it. Glad you had fun.
