Day 4. McKinney Falls, Austin

Erin’s health did not improve overnight, but Mallory came through with several recommendations for doctors from her “mom friends”, so Erin and I headed out to a doctor with walk-in hours. After an examination and some preliminary lab work, she prescribed Erin antibiotics.

A high-school friend of Nancy came to visit us with her family from Dallas. McKinney Falls has a nice swimming area below the lower falls, so we spent a couple hours there before dinner. Sean enjoyed jumping from the rocks into the water repeatedly as well as struggling to hold onto the rock wall behind the falls as he made his way across and they pounded down on his shoulders. Even Ian jumped from the rocks a few times!

Unfortunately Erin ended up spending most of the day sleeping in the camper. We were hoping those antibiotics would kick in quickly.
