Daingerfield, Fall 2012

Since we were kids, my family has been camping at Daingerfield State Park once every fall and once every spring. I love that the tradition has continued on through our adulthood, especially now that we are all married with kids of our own!

The whole Bergstrom side of the family (Kelly and Phil and kids, Heather and Jonathan and kids, my parents, and the three of us) went to Daingerfield this past Wednesday through Sunday, and we had such a great time! What a blessing and a joy it is to share this time together in such a beautiful place.

The weather was really warm for the first 2 days, so we swam! And then a major cool front moved in, so we bundled up in coats and hats. That's a true Texas camping trip. :) (We stayed in a big, 5-bedroom cabin all together, so the cold weather wasn't an issue at all.)

We hiked, played football, fished, played on the playground, ate great food, sat around the fire, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, went boating, and just laughed and talked and played and enjoyed each other's company.

Daingerfield is our favorite place in Texas, one that holds so many happy memories. We are so thankful to add yet another trip to the tally, and we can't wait to go back in the spring.
