Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Lost Maples State Park

Lost Maples State Natural Area is located about 5 miles north of Vanderpool, Texas and 71 miles west of San Antonio. The park sits along the Sabinal River in western Bandera County and far eastern Real County. There are several hiking trails and RV and primitive campsites. It is a popular place for "leaf peeping".

On Monday we went for a walk at Lost Maples State Park. My daughter planned this day for my birthday. We had a nice drive in the hill country of Texas, the park is almost 2 hours from her house.  Li'l Sophia loves to be outside looking up at trees and this is a great place for a walk.

Sophia was fording the creek in her 4x4 (3 wheel stroller)

We had dinner at the Old Spanish Trail Restaurant in Bandera

and Lemon Meringue Birthday Pie 

Thanks Diane, Karl, Liv and Sophia for a great day!

Sophia is 14 weeks old

Liv, Sophia and Diane
