Spring Break - Camping

For the third day in a row we spent much of it in the car. Our goal was to get camp set up before dark, but not much else was planned for today. We had some highlights, but I will let you read about them on the girls journal.

Christine and I struggled to get the girls to pay attention to what was outside the windows, and tomorrow we are planning on staying close by the camp with more time walking and biking.

We were successful in setting up camp and are the only people in the city/county park.  There are bugs, but not too many.  I'm sitting out under a lighted picnic area typing this in pitch dark but not getting bit.  We are only 10 miles from the Anahuac NWR entrance and feel like the middle of nowhere.  Deer crossed the park while we ate sandwiches and salad for supper and Whip-poor-wills called at dark.  Of course the bugs and dirt have Michaela a bit freaked, but hopefully it will grow on her.
