We hadn't been camping in a really long time so we decided to take a trip in mid December to one of our favorite campgrounds, Jelly Stone park in Waller, TX. We aren't hard core roughing-it material like we once were so we "glamp" in a cabin nowadays.
This is our first of two nights. We enjoyed the campfire, roasted weenies and made s'mores.

This is our cabin once we could see it the next day. It has a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, and loft area for extra sleeping. For some reason Halle missed the part about there being a working shower in the bathroom. She was quite disgusted to find out she went two days without showering for no reason.
|with no one being there the kids could ride their bikes on the roads without fear of cars.|
|Here is the play area where Jack and Arden spent most of their time. It's like a Mc Donalds playground on steroids. And because no one was around but us, we could send them off to play and see from our front porch.|

The activity center at the park has events planned everyday. On Saturday there was the ugly Christmas sweater decorating contest. Since we didn't bring our own sweaters we bought some white t-shirts from them and decorated those instead. Halle and Brian kept accusing each other of taking the other's idea of Santa's sleigh and reindeer. There were a few other families in there decorating, but our family won 1st ,2nd, and 3rd place! I was very proud of my family's crafting skills. I was especially proud of Brian's skills! I won first, Halle and Brian tied for second, and Arden got third. I also did a Facebook poll which Halle won by a long shot.
There was also cookie decorating.
|Brian's scary cookie. Looks like a Christmas Jack-o-lantern|
|I ate mine before anyone could take a picture. I'm a sucker for sugar cookies.|

|Jack just licks all the icing off the knife. He has that "it all ends up in one place anyway" mentality.|
That wrapped up our weekend camping trip. Hopefully we'll be able to make it back again soon.
