One of this things on our summer to do list was to go camping. Summer is officially over,
but we did finally go camping this weekend.
We loaded up the car Friday afternoon and met the Baccus fam out at Tannehill State Park to do a little camping. Here is our site all set up and ready to go.
The RVs and campers don't play around. They decorate their little areas for Halloween and go all out. We strolled through with the kids and enjoyed the decor.
Don't try this at home. Lighter fluid on the fire will sure get it going quick.
Sweet friend Claire! I know many people thought we were crazy taking our two year
olds camping, but why not?!
We got our little camping stoves and grills going and cooked hotdogs and hamburgers for dinner.
The kids loved it.
Our little camping crew. Please excuse the belly shot Fulton is giving.
The best part... after dinner dessert. Smores!!
These two monkeys snuck away and were jumping on the bed. After this it was lights out and time to see what the night would hold.
Fulton has never slept with us and now I know why. We sleep vertically, Fulton sleeps horizontal. Yikes. Matt ended up on the sleeping bag and Fulton and I shared the air mattress. At one point he was sleeping across both our pillows with his elbow in my throat. Precious memories.
This momma was a little tired the next morning.
But no time for resting, these two slept great and were ready to go.
We made our way up the museum, perused a bit, and then down to a little
craft festival they were having.
Then we made the trek through the trees to an old antique car show they were having. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, played a bit, crossed a creek, and then it was time to pack up and head home. We had a great time and are already talking about when we will do it again. Fulton gets his own tent next time. Other adventures of the weekend included two birthday parties, a picnic with our small group after church, and some sand volleyball. Busy but fun weekend.
