Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

July 4th 2022 is marked down as one for the books. This year lots of our family was scattered with variety of activities so I went with son and family, which includes Handsome Hudson and Beautiful Beckett, to a nearby resort we had never been to called: Horseshoe Bay Resort


So many activities to choose from: movies on the lawn, concerts on the Tower lawn, white water putting hut, water front beach with an aqua Park, Yacht Club Pool passes, snow cones, popcorn, tattoos and face painting, firesides s’mores, fishing, reading by the pool, playing UNO at as we waited for dinner, July 4th parade, dog parade, hot dogs, fireworks display….I can’t think of anything we experienced not enjoyed!

“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

What an awesome way to spend the 4th of July with family Dorie!  I bet the kids (and big kids) enjoyed every moment.  It feels like an old-fashioned 4th to me which is my fav!

I'm glad you had a delightful time with family, Dorie.  I had a rather quiet 4th this year.  Other than the community fireworks close to home.
