Next it was time to gather our tent, lantern and large kit containing the stove and cooking items; now on to set-up our Campsite!!! No problem there, my crew was more than ready to get going. Set-up seemed to be a breeze. My daughter and sons were having too much fun; I must admit I simply looked on.
Next group adventure: geocaching, we gathered near the Amphitheater for instructions. Never did this before either. My daughter and I were searching together, and of course, she found all the treasure. I would get close, but no Cigar. Geocaching proved interesting to me; but I would really have to learn the tricks of the trade, and I’m sure I would get hooked! On the way back to our camp, we spotted four fawns crossing the road in two different locations, passing directly in front of us.
Sunday opened to early morning fishing, we all cheered in amazement for the little girl who caught the biggest fish! After breakfast, time to gather together for instructions on how to clear the camp and not leave a trace! No problem for my crew to take down our tent and return all gear. Things were moving a bit too fast for me now, as it was time to get out of there. Group pictures taken, certificates received, we said our goodbyes – Super Thanks Rangers and Friends!!! Don’t think I’ll ever forget our First Family Camping Trip – Mineral Wells, TX – Good Fun – Great Time – Well Spent!!!
