Chris and I headed out to Lake Ray Roberts on Friday morning for the weekend. It took us 35 minutes to get there and setting up was pretty easy.
We got a great site on the water and were very surprised how many people were already out there.
The weather was cold, got down to the high 30's the first night and we had to run the heat.
We had a great time and are planning a trip for next month.

After we got the camper set up we headed out for the DORBA ( Dallas Offroad Bike Association) trails. They total 8 miles of single lane dirt roads that twist and turn throughout the woods. You are dodging trees, rocks and going up and down hills.
I lasted 1.1 miles -the first trail :) After Chris wiped out and flew over his handle bars I figured that this is a sport for 20 year olds and is just not my thing. So he said.. OK grandma where do you want to ride? I said back on the nice wide paved trails.. much better!
So, Chris will need a buddy or two to hit the Dorba trails with him next time. Any volunteers??

This was an old "primitive" campsite we found several miles in. Looked like no-one had been there for a very long time.

OK, as we have been told by Matt that we look like "dorks" with our helmets on, we know this, BUT ... some of the trails require a helmet and my thinking was that I do not need a head injury on top of everything else right now. So.. Dork it is! :)
This was our last morning and we decided to go biking again. The paved trails run along the lake in some places and makes for a beautiful ride or run.
By Sunday, it was getting warmer-quite a change from Friday.

Dave and Barb came in Friday with the camper from Arizona. We had just enough time to eat some pizza and get ready to go see Kevin & Matt's band play at Lone Star Country club.
We ( the parents) all sat there watching "the band" realizing we are in a club and the band performing are our kids and nephews. Barb said it best "what the heck happened"?? Before you know it your "baby" is the lead singer in the small smoky club and you are wondering "What the heck happened" :)
We had a short but VERY FUN visit. Hope to see you guys again soon!

The square in the back, left corner is my garden. I was going to plant my veggies this past Sunday, while Chris was building a gate for our camper. It rained and neither the gate or garden was done. Whew!
