The Colorado River

This was a good week.  Our little family spent it at the Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop, a little town in central Texas. Going to this hotel was sort of a spur-of-the-moment thing: Marcus desperately needed a break from work, and my own work schedule ramps up starting next week.  So this past week provided the perfect opportunity to have some concentrated family down-time.

Mission accomplished: we did very little but laze around, stopping only eat and dunk ourselves in the epic pool - a pool complete with a lazy river: a 1000-foot waterway with a slow current, designed solely for lying in a tube and floating. In fact, we relaxed so thoroughly, that I have no links to share with you this week - just a few snapshots from the last few days.  Apologies, but I promise to return you to your regularly scheduled Chookooloonks next week. 

  Champagne, for toasting the beginning of a vacation.  It's a Marcus-and-me tradition.
