Chip and I took Morgan, Kenden, and Jaidyn Joslin to Canyon Lake over the Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at Silverleaf's Hill Country Resort, where we enjoyed swimming, mini-golf, and the playground. On Sunday, we went to Fredericksburg for the Pacific Combat Living History Re-enactment, which was very moving and gave us an even greater appreciation for our soldiers. We also toured the National Museum of the Pacific War. Before returning home on Monday, we went to Wonder World in San Marcos, which included a cave tour, an observation tower, an anti-gravity house and a train ride through a wildlife petting park.
