*Thank you to Best Texas Travel for sponsoring today’s post*
K: If you missed Wednesday’s post, we unveiled the first part of our glamping experience and what it was like at Geronimo Creek Retreat. Best Texas Travel invited us out for the weekend and we spent some time in the Great Outdoors, loving every minute of it.
Brandon and I wanted to make sure that we had plenty to do and didn’t want to turn to TV as a source of entertainment (even though they do have it!). We rounded up the highlights of our trip into a few activities that you could easily replicate on your very own glamping weekend:
Shoot A Bow & Arrow
This was the big surprise of our trip! On a whim, Brandon and I purchased a bow and arrow from Cabela’s (this one is actually meant for kids!). Our twenty dollar purchase provided so much entertainment for the weekend as I learned how to shoot and Brandon taught me a few of his skills. Our target was a piece of duct tape on a large cardboard box. Although I had some trouble in the beginning, I quickly learned how to aim and eventually hit the target! We kept laughing because the bow is essentially a kid’s toy but we had so much fun with it!
Relax By The Water
Geronimo Creek Retreat is right next to water and it was so tranquil to go down to the floating dock in the morning and just observe. They did have kayaks and a standing paddle board for guests, but we were content sitting at the picnic tables on the dock, just talking. There’s also a rope swing that would be tons of fun in the summer months if you’re looking for a spot to go as the weather warms up.
Build A Fire
I learned at a young age that building a fire is most definitely an activity. I used to watch my dad perfect our bonfires on the lake and observed his technique. This weekend was no different: We gathered firewood, managed to light it, and continued to nurse the fire all evening as it grew dark. The best part of building a fire? Roasting marshmallows for s’mores! This is a camping necessity and cooking the marshmallows provides fun all night long.
Cook A Meal
Brandon and I love to cook and we love to grill! Unfortunately, we haven’t made the plunge of purchasing a grill for our San Antonio home yet; but this was wonderful as our glamping cabin came with a grilling spot! We took advantage and brought the stuff for burgers, and of course a box of Girl Scout Cookies. It seemed like a much-needed addition to the camping weekend and I think the Girl Scouts would approve.
