The last hoorah of summer...or The Griswold's take New Braunfels!

We snuck in a quick end of summer trip last weekend, getting home literally the day before school started.

We loaded up the family truckster and hitched on the (new to us) travel trailer. It was our maiden voyage for our little travel trailer.

There she is our home away from home! Let me tell you, it was $90 total for 3 nights in the RV park. Sheesh, where have you been all my life trailer?
We of course brought Missy the wonder doxie, no family trip is complete without her.

She was the trailer park queen, a coveted title no doubt, with her cute self. She got comments everywhere we went..."She is beautiful"/"What a pretty little dog" / "Is that a Dachshund?"

Some fellow campers at the park had a Dachshund and as they walked by our spot with their short haired doxie one of them said "Look there is a hairy weenie!" To which, of course, blonde rascal and I giggled and snorted. Guess who has a new name added to the long list of endearing things we call her?

(She did get knocked down from her trailer park beauty queen, big head status today when the lady who cleans our house asked if Missy was pregnant! Wha...???? Why no, she is just fluffy, and big boned and she has a great personality and she makes her own clothes...)

Also along with Missy in our humble trailer was ZZ. You have not met ZZ yet, he is a new addition to the family...
Apparently no trip is complete without him either.Nobody asked if he was pregnant.

(ZZ is short for ZZ Top. Don't ask me.)

Friday morning we headed out to Schlitterbahn. First the fellas checked out the park map online so we could make our plan of attack.
RV parks have wi-fi. Sheesh. $90, who knew?

Schlitterbahn admission was significantly more than $90, but who's counting?Hubs and blonde rascal in the lazy river. The only picture I and water park don't really go well together you know.

It was fun, fun, fun. We had such a great time and were completely exhausted when we left that evening.

The next morning we floated the Comal River. By the by, our swanky RV park was right on the river.
That was ridiculously fun. Good times, great memories.

My sunglasses are on the bottom of that river.

Based on the adventures of those 2 days I feel I should give pause and discuss the importance of females getting a swim suit that appropriately covers and holds in all fat, jiggly parts, stomach, buttocks, bulges...that no one wants to see. Really ladies, have some respect. None of us are perfect but if you are pushing 350 lbs., I feel like it is obvious that a bikini is not the most flattering choice. Yes? I digress again...

Anyway RV park life was fun, relaxing and a great family getaway.

Toasting marshmallows....

Grilling burgers right next to the neighboring trailer and their sewer poop chute hose hookup. Dinner's ready!! Yum!

It was incredibly fantastic to be with 2 of my favorite guys (and the dog...and the hamster) for a fun weekend before the craziness of school started up again.
