Let's backtrack 2 weeks to the weekend before Thanksgiving. This weekend is set aside for fun times with Josh's mom's side of the family. Her sister and 2 brothers all live here in TX as well as most of their children (Josh's cousins). Last year was our first year to join the gathering since we had been living so far away before. This year we met at Inks Lake State Park. This park has a lake that is maintained at a constant level even in drought years. That meant that we could take our canoe! We also camped at the park and used a group picnic area for our gathering.
I wish I had taken more pictures, but I'll add more when I get them from other family members.
