Both my husband and I, not to mention our kids, enjoy camping. There is something about being away from the daily routine of the same old, same old (though with kids it is hardly same old, but still), unplugging ourselves from most every technologically advanced tool, watching the night sky bright with stars while lying on a picnic table, doing some kind of water activity all with the company of good friends that appeals to us. Living out of a duffle bag and a handful of kitchen supplies also appeals to us. I love cooking outdoors and find it I do just fine cooking meals on one skillet and one pot. But, almost every time we go, while feeling like we are taking half of the house with us, we still forget one thing or another. Some things, we could do without, but others, such as a flashlight, the thing we forgot this time around, is pretty useful while in the middle of a forest. So, in an effort to leave useless things behind, and be well prepared for our next trip, I am putting together a list. While I do that, I wanted to share some of the memories from this last weekend.
BIG, yummy trout
Log riding was popular.
Love this picture of Abby.
Finding tadpoles was even more popular. The kids were occupied for hours!
Before returning the poor things back to the lake.
These are pictures from the 4th of July weekend when we stopped by for a day to visit Peter's most entire family who were camping there then.
Small boat riding.
Big boat riding
Big boat broke :(
Good sweet, summer memories.
