Second Day of Camping-- at the Narrows

So the second day of camping we packed up our stuff and headed to the Narrows Recreation Area.  I saw this place on Pinterest and we were all excited to go, but it was a Pinterest FAIL.  Apparently, there's another place, called the Narrows (see this link) as well, somewhere in Texas that's on private land and that's what we were looking at.  We still had fun though playing in the water, so I guess it wasn't a complete loss.  Just not as cool as we were expecting.
So we spent the entire day playing in the Colorado River.  Good times were had by all, although Leo was extremely tired because he was up half the night with Nicolas (I was up the other half--but I think Leo got the worst of it).  Yeah, so Nicolas had strep throat too and is getting a tooth in.  We are bad parents, I tell you.

Didn't notice the funky setting I had my camera on till later.

So, I've been told Texas is in a drought, but really, living in Houston, I find that hard to believe, as it rains more than any place I've ever lived! And the 80% humidity does not make it feel drought-ish.  However, going here, I believed it.  We walked down the boat ramp and then about a hundred feet further out to get to the river.  We saw several boat houses sitting high and dry far, far, from the river.  Kind of crazy to think about actually, such a huge change.

Poor Nicolas, still not very happy. Although, truth be told, he WAS happy while he was on my back, and when I was holding him.  Just not in the picture.  He just wanted to be held CONSTANTLY.

Ugh, awful pictures of me, but I was there.  Here's the proof.

My hottie.  So cute!

And this was actually on our drive home Sunday night.  So pretty.  If I were to live in Texas for a long time, I would want to live here, in Coupland.  Or actually in Fredericksburg more, but here's pretty too. San Antonio would be okay as well, I guess.  Too bad we're stuck in Houston.  Blah.

The end.

You look like the girl in Top Gun in the picture with you holding Lando in front of you.
