Tales of Summer: Camping

Last week we went camping at a conservation area not far from our home. This was our second year camping as a family and it was so much fun.

Two wonderful days in the woods with nothing on the agenda but fun, relaxation, and enjoying time together.  It was great!

Time was spent at the beach swimming and playing in the sand.  The girls got so much sand in their bathing suits that I could not rinse it out....the bathing suits went in the garbage right at the campsite.

Bridget also made friends with some boys at the beach who had caught a frog.  She thought this was just fantastic and was climbing all over the rocks trying to spot more frogs in the water.

We went for walks in the woods.....

And posed for pictures along the way

Our evenings were spent sitting around the fire roasting marshmallows and making s'mores.....a delicious and sticky end to each day.

And of course, there was time for some campsite crochet.  

We all came home in desperate need of a bath/shower, but so refreshed by our time spent outdoors.
