Sometimes, it’s really hard to find time to blog. The weather has been horrible so our focus has been on school. I like to get a little ahead when we can.
On Sunday, December 4, we visited a nice church in the area. We enjoyed it so much that we may make the drive back from our next location to visit it again next Sunday. After a long afternoon nap Barry surprised us with tickets to see The Muppets. It was a very cute movie for the girls and a trip down memory lane for Barry and me.
Monday and Tuesday weren’t much different from each other. The park we are currently at has a recreation room just a little ways from our site. It’s warm and we have it all to ourselves. The girls have enjoyed the foosball table and other games during their breaks. It’s really been nice to get out of the camper since it rained very hard Friday through Monday and was very cold and gray today. I’m sure that spending time in the rec room saved our sanity!
This afternoon we took a drive into Glen Rose. It’s an older town with a lot of history. Unfortunately, the town pretty much closes up this time of year except for the weekends. We still enjoyed walking around a bit. This area has a lot of petrified wood that is used for building houses, fountains and other structures. It’s very beautiful and unique.
This area has a lot of dinosaur footprints. It was really neat to see one footprint today that is built into the band shelter in Glen Rose. The weather is supposed to be nice tomorrow so we are planning on a ‘dinosaur hunt.’ This is very timely as Eva is earning her Jr. Ranger Paleontology Badge from the National Park Service.
