My favorite place in Texas.

Dallas?  San Antonio? Weirdo-Austin?

None of those places.  We have traveled to many areas in this huge state and have seen most of the “must-see” locations on the travel websites and none of those are at the top of my list.  I enjoy those places just fine, but the destination at the top of my list is not on any of those websites:  Camp Eagle in RockSprings, Texas.

The Fort Hood youth group, Bob’s Diner, attends camp there three times a year: twice to serve the camp staff and once as campers.

Anna has now been twice and here are some pictures of our time there, along with a description of the activities depicted.

Service Project, October 2015

(Bailey and I worked very hard on Day 1 and that evening Bailey’s throat hurt.  By the second day his throat was so bad he and I had to leave for home.  He officially had Strep throat.)

Service Project, February 2016

Our family wasn’t able to attend this service project because we were in Virginia meeting our littlest family member!

Summer Camp, June 2016

The bigs went to camp without us for the first time.  I wasn’t sad for them to go without me… I was sad I couldn’t go.  I really do love this place.
