This is a photo of the kids from our failed camping attempt in Austin back in 2006. We ended up packing up in the middle of the night and coming home because in early June, it was still 98 degrees at 11 pm at night. We couldn’t sleep or do anything really because it was so hot. We just broke camp, packed up and left! Fortunately, we were able to get vacation back on track the next night, but to be honest, we learned a really valuable lesson that summer – don’t camp in Texas in the summer. 😀 Between the heat in Austin and the ridiculous sand coming in the tent at Mustang Island during near gale-force winds near Corpus Christi another night, we realized that camping is best left to the fall and early spring.
