Flying L

We continued what is becoming our yearly tradition of staying for a weekend at Flying L ranch before school started.  It is so fun to get away just the five of us, and enjoy each other before the crazy school schedule takes over.


This time we had a fun discovery!, Just outside our room, there were bushes truly covered in caterpillars and cocoons! It was awe-inspiring.


This is what 3 boys look like when you tell them it’s time to stop swimming because the water park is closing for the day.


A little ping pong cheered them up, though.


Sunburned and enjoying smores. The epitome of summer!



Can you guess who managed to walk around in the water with 5 tubes?


Hint: He managed to sit on top of 2 at a time.P8063868

Chandler mastered the big slide by himself!



Chance preferred making tents to handle the big bucket of water.P8063942P8063951

I don’t have many photos of Charlie because he’s reached the age of freedom in the waterpark, therefore he is constantly on the move…

My favorite part of the day is s’more time, when we gather around a fire (despite the 100+ degree Texas heat), and listen to Buck Shannon play cowboy songs.  There’s something so relaxing, yet community-building, about it.



Here’s a sample:

We also enjoyed some time walking down the main street of Bandera.  And eating Blue Bell!



I am so grateful for these opportunities to enjoy these boys to the fullest!  What a blessing they are!
