I have been wanting to take a vacation with my brother and his family for a couple of years now, and finally our kids are old enough to make that a reality. We discussed options last year and decided to book a cabin down on the Frio River in Concan, Texas for a few days to float the river and play. I had been once before back in 2002, so I was familiar with the area and it seemed like something we would all enjoy. Today the day finally arrived for us to make the trek down south to Concan.
We loaded up the Fiat, and when I say loaded, I mean we were pretty much packed to the brim. Kate had just enough room for herself in the back seat, and if we had been in an accident I'm not sure the airbags would have had anywhere to deploy. But we managed to get everything we needed in the car. Since we are renting cabin we needed to bring all of our food and sheets, towels, paper goods, etc that we will need for the week on top of camping chairs, outdoor toys, and other such things. I honestly can't figure out why people go camping. I mean, camping requires even more stuff than we had to pack for this trip and I was exhausted before we even left!
We arrived two hours before Jason and Heather did, so we had time to unload our tightly packed car and get everything settled in before they got here. We even walked down to the river to look around, and then Kate had to wait some more and kept asking me when they would be here. It was a long wait for her!
