Posts Tagged ‘camping trip’

In May we made a last minute plan to go camping.  We were supposed to go with some friends (the EXPERT campers)…but one of their daughters got sick at the last minute.  Our kids had totally been looking forward to it…so we HAD to go.  We have never gone camping as a family…like real camping where we stay in tents.  This was going to be an adventure!  So we borrowed tents…packed up the ice chest…threw in some blankets and headed out.  We arrived at the campsite around 3 in the afternoon and drove around and let the kids pick out the best spot to set up our tent.  We gathered some fire wood…and then took off exploring.  We had the best time!  We walked all around the water’s edge on some LARGE boulders.  Later that evening we roasted hot dogs…and SMORES of course!  When all of the stars came out we went back to the boulders and laid on our backs to look at the stars…and told scary stories.  We finally went back to our tents and slept…on the HARD ground….with no blow up mattress.  When we woke up the next morning I hurt EVERYWHERE.  I surely had rock indentations all over my back, shoulders, and hips. I could seriously hardly walk.  Back to the FUN family time… Carter and Ben started the morning off by fishing…then we all went hiking…and then swam the rest of the day.  The kids had a blast…I loved being away from technology…and we will definitely go again….better prepared:).
