A fun weekend of Camping

Ah, Autumn is upon us. We knew that this would probably be our last weekend to go camping, so we took advantage of the trailer we just bought last Tuesday, and went before the weather was too cold. It was borderline while we were there. I have to say that the furnace in our trailer was very helpful! I LOVE MY TRAILER (excellent Craig's List find)!

We had such a good time. Jim's cousin's family were camping this weekend too, so we coordinated with them so we could all have fun together (Aaron & Megan and their kid) and my friend Shauna, her kids, and her two sisters and their kids. Okay...a lot of kids...but what a great place to just set them free and let them have fun--hiking, climbing big boulder-type-rocks, and just playing around. They kept themselves rather entertained. Tess (our puppy) had so much fun too--the kids loved taking her on walks and she was in heaven with all the attention.

We ladies were entertained too. Our favorite time: in the trailer playing board games and eating licorice. It was great!

We dutch oven cooked, sat around the campfire and sang silly and fun camp songs, and just had a good-ole'-time. The fall colors were awesome and I'm so glad we went before it was too late. This upcoming weekend is going to be in the 40's--good thing we went while we could!! What a great time we had!

Oh, I am so jealous! Looks so fun! I would love to have a little trailer like that--not too big, but some comfort! :)

Seeing your campsite all set up, everyone in their sweatshirts, and the dutch ovens just brought back thousands of memories of my childhood! We camped all the time....your kids will keep those memories forever. We need to take our kids more. Wish we were camping with you. Maybe we could arrange that sometime? Love ya

Camping is the BEST!! (Especially with a nice tent trailer) It looks like you had beautiful scenery with the leaves starting to change.
