Lost Pines in Pics Labor Day Weekend: Day 3

After sleeping as late as the kids would let us we got up, packed, had breakfast, and then made our way over for a wagon ride.

Several other folks had the same idea, but thankfully we didn't have to wait too terribly long for our turn.

Afterwards we wandered over to the playground and let the boys play for a while.

Of course they had to try out everything the bigger kids were doing like the monkey bars.

Connor didn't think he needed any help.  :)

After the boys had played for a while we stopped by the bike check-out area and picked up some tricycles.

The boys are still working on their pedaling skills, but did actually manage to ride them on the downhill.  :)

They discovered that pedaling uphill was much harder. 

And that going downhill you really don't even have to pedal, just steer.

We went back to the room, changed into our swimsuits and headed for the pool one last time.

The boys enjoyed the last of the popsicles before heading in.

As it was around lunchtime and after typical check-out time (to say nothing of the fires that we would have been more concerned about had we actually watched the news at any point in the last 24 hours) we practically had the pool to ourselves. 

After making several laps around the mildly freezing (!?! in Texas, with almost 100 degree temps??) water we decided it was time for lunch.  We ordered burgers, parmesan fries, and turkey legs from Buck's poolside and lounged in the chairs drying out and waiting for our food to arrive.

Ryan helped himself to the fries and even shared his loot with Connor while we sorted out the rest of the food.  After we finished eating Kevin and the boys headed for the big slide.

They plunged unsuspectingly off the end of the slide to the shockingly rude reminder of just how cold the water was.

 One by one.

After half a dozen more trips down the slide and as many laps around the lazy river we decided it was time to head back and change clothes and head out.

As we took the scenic route back looking out over the river towards Bastrop we saw the tip of the almost cloud like smoke rising from the fires East of Bastrop.  It was our first inkling of just how close, and large the fires were.
