17th Annual Sanders Vacation to Hunt, Texas


We left Houston last Thursday in a rain storm with a fingers crossed that it would not rain the whole time we were in Hunt, Texas. We stopped by San Marcos for a couple hours and we only made a dent in the stores. (They really have EVERYTHING!) It only was cloudy on Friday and beautiful on Saturday and Sunday. We stayed in two condos at River Inn. I have to say that it was a different experience going on vacation with a toddler. Keegan's molars started to come in and had he had a cold. He stayed in the same room with us and a couple nights we did not get much sleep. It was not long before he figured out that we were in the room with him. I even tried to trick him by putting up a sheet hanging from the ceiling so he would not see us. He is one smart cookie! One cool thing about this trip, besides hanging out with family, is that Keegan took his very first steps. We were all out by the river, and he was doing so well standing by himself. Uncle Brad invited him to come to him, and he took 3 mini steps. I held my breath and I was so proud of him! He has not done it since, but I know that he will pick it up again soon. I think the main component of him taking steps, was that he did not want to crawl in the grass. But hey..we will take it! We fished, played games, worked on MANY crossword puzzles, and watched Brianna and Keegan for entertainment. I really appreciated a few days to get away and be in nature. Sometimes I wonder why we just don't pick up and move to the Hill Country.

It is my dream to live in the Hill Country. If you move there first, I will never speak to you again. ;)

Awww!!! Love the picture of you fishing there with your cute little pregnant belly! ;) Very fun that you guys have so many family events!!! :) Those are always so much fun! We have yet to take a road trip with our toddlers! That should be exciting! Ha! I think we should have tried our first one before Zoe was potty trained! That could get interesting! :)

OMG!OMG!OMG! I love the Hill Country! I would still speak to you if you moved there before Courtney because then I would have a friend to come visit...:) We almost stayed at the River Inn but then went to Mo Ranch and it was familiar so we picked that...can't go wrong in Hunt.
