|We started out at Kerrville-Schreiner Park with Tootsie, Marion
and the Hearn kids (and lots of deer).
Kim and Larry stayed in a B&B in Hunt.
|The girls played in the river while Colby tried out a new fishing lure.|
|Mimi has a new shirt!|
|There were a few butterflies in the butterfly area.|
|The beach area was a volleyball court!|
|Tootsie removed a sticker from Kassidy's foot.....|
|.... and Colby put her shoes on.|
|We started out on the lake, but a large bull dog next door was just too much for us.|
|We hooked up the next morning and moved "inland" to a small, secluded loop. Our only neighbors here were cactus and deer!|
|Two cactus flowers getting started.|
|The buds above hope to look like this in a few days!|
|A little afternoon nap!|
|Devil's Waterhole. Kids love to jump into the water from
these rocks (see picture below).

|The boy went on three, but the girl went on 4!!|
|There was a quartz outcrop on the top of the hill.|
|Doris made the climb up to the top to find me.|
|There were no cactus flowers up here, but these were everywhere.|
|The day before we returned home, we toured the Longhorn Caverns (about 6 miles from the park). It was an enjoyable 90 minute "stroll" through a cave formed by an old underground river. This room was illuminated with colored lights to highlight the different minerals.|
|The cave was closed for the morning to make room for a large school group from Leander Middle School. We elected to join one of the groups rather than return later, and we were glad we did. The kids asked good questions, and the guide did more teaching than on regular tours.|
