Bastrop State Park

A entirely FREE weekend! That's what we had on our hands. Levi didn't play at church this Sunday and we had no other commitments for the whole weekend! Friday night we ended up eating at Taproom with friends and then coming home to watch Big Love (<3). We wanted to make the most out of our free time the rest of the weekend so we got up Saturday morning and drove to Bastrop State Park! I had been wanting to check it out and I'm so glad we did! After the Bastrop fires a couple of years ago (it seems like just yesterday!), it looked very different...incredible and beautiful, but also sad. 96% of the park was burned down by the fires, but now they have started clearing some of the dead trees and planting new things. It was such a neat dynamic to see the old burned trees falling down, with all the new green life sprouting up around them. I can't wait to go back later this spring and see what else pops up. After the park we ended up driving through to Conroe to visit my parents! We hadn't been back since Thanksgiving! I couldn't believe it'd been that long. It was such a good visit and I'm glad we decided to do it.

Taking more photos of our personal life/adventures was a goal of mine last year and it has been so much fun to do! I LOVE taking photos, I just do. I wouldn't say I'm super creative or inventive, but I just love to document our lives.

Levi's new car! It's a Mazda CX-5, we love it.

A forewarning: this post is a little Mosely heavy. She was just SO cute!

This was the scenic overlook where we parked and started walking down the trail. It was just burnt trees for miles.

Lots of little baby pines all over!

This may not be much, but Levi and I are proud of our growing outdoorsiness, haha. We finally bought a collapsible water bowl for Mosely and packed a whole little bag of things.
