Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park- Hill Country, Canyon Lake TX

You guys. We had so, SO, so much fun on our long weekend camping trip. We headed out Friday evening to Canyon Lake near Austin. From Houston it was a full 3.5 hour drive for us. Jonah did great with a little Blue Bell treat mid-way and once we got to the cabin was full speed ahead for a couple more hours. This trip was so fun because he is old enough to get excited about things now. It's the coolest to watch.

We made a meal plan before we left, and purchased groceries accordingly. Some of the things we made were- eggs benedict (YUM!!), breakfast tacos, homemade Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream (y'all, this was crazy delicious), and we grilled burgers and boudin. We ate SO good you guys. We had the best time hanging out on the front porch of Cabin 36. The park has planned activities every hour or so. The little guys aren't old enough for a lot of it, but we did participate in the evening glow stick hey-hey rides, and made great use of the splash pad and pool. They also have a huge bouncy pillow that the Dads liked more than the little guys. The boys LOVED the weekend. They roamed around the park and played so well together (of course their favorite thing to say is still, "MINE"!). We stayed outside most of the weekend, laughing, talking, eating and making the very best memories.

If you've ever considered "roughing it" but don't want to stay in a tent- I highly recommend Jellystone Park's cabins. Our deluxe cabin had two nice sized bedrooms with a queen bed and a bunk in each room. The bedrooms also have their own bathroom with a good size tub/shower combo. Our cabin had a full kitchen which was so nice because we prepared a ton of our meals there. We didn't really "rough it" at all, but were still able to camp out with our little dudes. The cabins were really, really clean and much nicer than I even expected inside. The park has golf carts available for rental, as well as bicycles. When Jonah and Carter get bigger they will be able to participate in the camp activities like arts & crafts, laser tag, scavenger hunts and tons of other things.

We will definitely be making lots of future trips to Jellystone with our guys. It was such a fun experience and the best Memorial Day weekend!

I hope you guys had a great one as well! I'll be back soon to begin posting about Jonah's SECOND Birthday which is exactly ONE MONTH AWAY. Insert tears. How can he already be two?!!......
