Tyler State Park

A few weekends ago Andrew, Luke and I met up with Andrew's brother, Christopher, and his family and headed out to Tyler State Park. Andrew and Christopher convinced my sister-in-law, Tiffany and me that this park had the best fishing around and that they HAD to go fishing that weekend. So here we go packing up all seven of us (4 adults, 1 toddler and 2 babies) in 1 Tahoe and a boat and headed toward Tyler.
It took us about an hour longer to get there that expected- between the gas stop and about 10,000 potty breaks on the side of the highway for Brazos (he's potty training- but had no accidents the whole way! Yay!) we finally go there.
Before we went, the plan was to go and watch the boys catch tons of fish, while the girls and babies hung out on the shore. We got there we set up camp (Blanket and chairs), the boys headed out, they fished for a few hours (caught almost nothing as I recall). We then packed up and headed to the fine Comfort Inn and Suites and the 7 of us shared a hotel room. It was a tight squeeze- but surprising it worked out. The next day the guys fished all day and hung out with us some- Luke wasn't having it towards the afternoon and we had a major breakdown, but towards the evening he calmed down. This 'great fishing' must have been a myth- because they didn't catch much- but the weather was perfect and we had fun hanging out and enjoying each others' company!
