Vacation part one: Frio River

Our family vacation has come and gone. This year, we decided to do a river trip with friends and I'm so glad we did. The kids had so much fun, especially the big kids, and they'll take these fun memories to kindergarten with them.

We left home around 11:45 am and settled in for the 4 1/2 hour drive. We made a few stops for potty breaks and groceries and finally got to our cabin around 7:45pm. Luis cooked fajita and we settled in to our home for the next three nights. The kids stayed up playing and the grown up played cards.

We found an area on the side of the river (an area we have actually been before with family) and spent most of the afternoon floating around, swimming, and relaxing. You know, as relaxing as being in the water with kids can be. Between the three families, we had 7 children 5 years old and younger. Our hands were pretty full, but I think everyone still had a great time. At one point we had 3 out of 7 kids napping at the same time! On the river! Luis and I took turns sitting on the side with Sebastian because I wasn't really willing to get in with him, just in case. 

We went to a different part of the river this time. There was a bit more bank to sit on, but the current was a little stronger. The kids kept floating away and they thought it was pretty hilarious. The grown ups did not. It was our last night in Concan, so we picked up some pizza and hung out on the front porch for as long as the kiddos allowed.
