Smores and More

A couple weekends ago Daniel and I went camping with two other couples from our LifeGroup. We set up camp in Mineral Wells State Park. It was beautiful but COLD! Woody and Kathy, the leaders of our LifeGroup, along with Trey and Shelly headed out to Mineral Wells a little earlier than Daniel and I. Daniel and I arrived a little after dark, to find our tent pitched and a fire ready to cook our dinner.

We had a delicious dinner of grilled chicken, baked potatoes, fresh bread and campfire beans. After dinner we gathered around the fire, to try and stay warm, and roasted marshmallows, ate smores and drank hot chocolate.
It was a cold night...the temperature dropped to the low 40's, but Daniel and I were warm for most of the night in our sleeping bags.

Saturday morning Daniel and I woke up early and joined Woody sitting by the fire. Once the rest of the group was up we enjoyed a breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon and tortillas as well as cowboy coffee (coffee made in a sock). After breakfast we cleaned up, broke camp, and spent some time hiking around the park. It was a beautiful day and truly a great trip.

Date Night!

Last week Gloria and I decided we needed to have a date night. We had a a jar full of change that we decided to take to CoinStar at Tom Thumb and use it to pay for dinner that night. Gloria suggested that we go to Houston's, and we had a great dinner that night. Gloria ordered crab cakes and I had barbecue pork ribs. Gloria and I had a lot of fun that night... as usual.
