Lake LBJ


This is where we went over the past weekend. Its a place called Longhorn Resorts on Lake LBJ in Kingsland, Texas. There were 25 of us all together and we rented out 4 cabins and a huge House. Luckily the place had a pool because it was where we spent about 80% of our time. The lake was very murky from recent hard rains and no one wanted to get in it. The boat wouldn't run (story of our life) so there was very little fishing and no skiing. We had a great time hanging out all together, the kids played and played and played until they were ready to drop dead. There was horse-shoe pitchin', and a rousing game of croquet, and even some basketball games. We played a game called Catch Phrase (think Hot potato with an electronic toy giving clues others try to guess) which I excelled at. We stayed up late listening to my BIL play guitar and sing. It was bedlam around meal time and felt like christmas with all of us crammed into one house most of the time. We had a great time and already talked about what we would do for next summer. I love being married into a family that is huge and there is so much love between them all. My hubby has 5 brothers and a sister, they are all married and all have children. Its always so much fun when we get together. The kids had a talent show one night and they were so fun to watch. The second night we had joke telling and all around silliness. Tony and my son Blake did a ventriloquist act together that had us in stitches. I had so much fun and now I am exhausted and a little horse from talking so loud and so much. Hopefully I can stamp this week. I have new rubber on its way from Amuse so I might get busy today if it gets here soon.
