Enchanted Rock Trip

Every now and then we like to get together with our friends from the old San Marcos University Branch. This time around we met up with Adam and Rachael Bond and their family and Dan and Tannie Smith and their boys. We thought about going camping, but the burn ban is still in effect at every State Park. Camp fires are prohibited.

So our next thought was of Enchanted Rock. I hadn't been there in years and thought it might be a good place for the kiddos to climb rocks and play. We all met at Enchanted Rock and after a quick update on everyone and bathroom break, we began to climb.

Enchanted Rock is much bigger than I remember. Lincoln did a great job on the way up. He walked up with all the other big kids and stopped to climb on every rock he could. There is a cave system at the top of the rock, but it would have taken an hour to get through it because there were so many people there that day. We stopped and had a snack at the very top, which was a little difficult because of the wind. It was a beautiful day though.

The climb down, was a little different than on the way up. Linc started to have a melt down about half way down, and Josh and I took turns carrying him down on our backs. He would try to run, and soon found that running downhill can cause you to fall....which of course happened. I bet everyone that Lincoln would be the first to bleed and I won the bet. He scraped his hand and knee, and got in trouble for not listening to us telling him NOT to run! Bad trip down for kiddo.

We got to the car and determined our next destination for some well known hamburgers. It took about an hour to get to the restaraunt, outside of Fredericksburg, so that gave Linc time to nap in the car.
