A Camping We Will Go
Most of you know that the family has a new obsession....camping. I used to not be an outdoorsy kind of girl unless it involved a furry creature of the four-legged variety that you put a saddle on, but now-adays there is nothing I would like better than to spend the day laying in a hammock watching the kids play and listening to the wind in the trees.
Last weekend we went to Andrew Jackson State Park again and had a great time. One couldn't have asked for better weather. During the day it was in the upper 70's/lower 80's and at night I think it averaged around 55 or so. A little chilly but that's what we have a heater in the camper for.
Friday we ate pizza since I had to pick the kiddos up from day care. Saturday morning we ate eggs, biscuits (pre-made at home) and sausage on the grill. For dinner we had cheddar brats, hotdogs, beans, chips, and potatoes & peppers cooked over the campfire. For dessert...SMORES. Wildman didn't care for them much, but that left more for me. And once DQ discovered that there was CHOCOLATE in them she was hooked.
Both of the kids were so good and they absolutely love being outside. I can't wait to go again. As soon as I get paid I am making reservations and we are going to Kings Mountain State Park. I think we would go every weekend if we could.
Here's a few pics of our grand adventure:
