The Frio... Maurer Style

The Maurer's descend on the Frio in Concan once a year and every year memories are made though some are forgotten (unintentionally :) )  This year we were able to reserve a different house, Margaritaville Villa, one perfect for our crew, one that allowed the early birds to go to bed at midnight and the late night pitch players to stay up without being heard.
I was so great with taking pics with my camera when we arrived the first day and the next 3... well, fun got in the way.  So here is just a sneak peek of what goes on when the Maurer's hit the Frio.

 Ready for the river!
 A Maurer cousin favorite - sand volleyball.  We were a little less than spectacular this year, but we had fun none the less.
 This kitchen/dining area was perfect for our group.  We grubbed whenever we weren't on the river and enjoyed every pound that was put on.  Menus consisted of pulled pork tacos w/ chipolte slaw, hamburgers and grilled fish with all the fixings.
 Smores... a Frio must.
 Card playing is a must and the game of choice is pitch 99% of the time.  This is when the early birds go to be (me) and the party animals play until 2am.
 The pic above is real blurry, but day 2 of floating, we striped all the kids' hair pink...
 Kelcie tuned the BIG 2.1. on the trip so we had to celebrate w/ cake.  She kept her party going when she and her fam left the Frio at 9am Wed morning, only to pack and head to Austin for a flight to Vegas.  Ahhh.. to be young again.

Not the best pic, but this was our whole crew.  

Of course there was floating and this year the water was flowing.  Every morning the entire crew managed to pack up, unload tubes and float down the river together.  After the first float (3 hours) we would head back to the house famished.  The first day the cousins (Wes & I) floated together after lunch and the second day the guys played golf, the gmas and kids stayed at the house and the girls got away to float on our own.  Good times!!
