My Family Tree 2009


Mommy, Baby Adelyn, Zachary, Daddy

This week I learned that families are one of our most important gifts. We learn about each other, support each other, play together, and love each other. When we were learning about families, my daddy ran a marathon here in San Antonio. Both of my families came to support him.

Gluing pictures of camping items

Pedernales State Park





Mommy and Daddy took me to Pedernales State Park for a weekend camping trip! We went with Memay's family, her aunt and uncle, and another couple who are her friends too. We slept in a tent for two nights! Mrs. Mollie was so nice b/c she reserved the campsite next to the bathrooms. She's smart! We also had a camp fire and went hiking! I got to ride in the backpack. So did Memay and Feodore (Theodore).

Walking on the trail.


Memay wanted me to sit with her


Daddy helped me touch the water at the falls area


Memay and I loved the sand


We tried to innocently scoot close to the water.


Lying in the sand and kicking was fun.


Memay thought so too. She's taking a break here.


Walking together along the shore.


Time to put my shoes back on. My feet were full of wet sand!


I asked if we could go camping again. But Mommy and Daddy said that it was time to go back to the car and go home.


We had fun camping at Pedernales State Park!
