Grandpa fixed brisket, sausage and chicken for Saturday night.
Ethan ate this entire chicken leg!
Sunday we visited Natural Bridge Caverns.
stayed at the top since the floors were wet and slippery.
Zach & Ethan soon got their "cave legs" and went
A quick portrait 300 feet below ground.
The lower part of the cave was flooded due to all of the rain; we
took a detour around that section.
The "official" photo at the end of the tour.
After the cave tour, the boys washed some gem dirt to find gems
and minerals. They both found a bag full.
Ethan LOVED the climbing dino!
A quick trip to the flooded Guadeloupe River for some playing and
Waffles with whipping cream for breakfast!
Monday we went swimming at the church pool. "E"
got thrown in by dad.
Ethan perfected many slide styles.
Dad finally took the plunge.
Zach with another style!
There were lots of frogs; Zach found this tiny one.
Portraits were taken at "the tree" on the Medina River
The boys fed and chased the ducks and geese.
After the boys both got cowboy hats, we went to a playground in
Bandera. Ethan REALLY liked his hat!
The GREAT climbing tree in the fairway behind our house.
The boys checked out the pouring of the slab down the street.
Tuesday (the last day) was spent at Garner State Park. Mimi
had to go to the hospital for some tests, so Mom & Dad took Ethan and Zach for a day
in the water on the Frio River.
Ethan went in first.
Zach joined him, and the fun began!
A kayak was rented...
... Zach got a chance to be the motor!
Both boys learned to swing out and jump from the rope on the far
side of the river. The bigger kids were very helpful pulling them out of the water
and helping Ethan get on the rope. Dad watched from the Kayak.
