Fall fun: camping

Andrew has been itching to go camping before it gets too cold. This weekend seemed like the ideal time for it. We got a campsite on Friday night and headed to the woods.

Caroline enjoyed some quality time on
the little camping chair that's just her size.
Andrew and I were talking about how scary
it is to have a toddler out in the woods at night.
How did more pioneer children not get lost?
If she walked a few feet away from us, it was
almost impossible to see her. We had to
follow her around like pre-teen girls at a
Jonas Brothers concert!

Andrew tutored her on the fine art of hot-dog roasting.

We enjoyed our dinner by firelight.

It is so relaxing to get away.
Even if your destination is just a
20 minute drive from home.

After enjoying s'mores (YUM!),
the girls headed home to our nice, cozy beds.

These two brave souls stayed the night.
They had a blast, even though it rained.
The cheap tent we bought on clearance
at Target for $9 pulled through!
They stayed dry, but still didn't sleep much
because the rain and wind were so loud.

I'm not an outdoorsy person at all (like, camping to me is a hotel room w/ a fireplace to cook the smores), but it looks like you had lots of fun! And WTG on that bargain tent! I've known people w/ $100 set ups that don't keep them dry, so that was definitely a blessing! : )

That looks like so much fun!
And, the name thing, totally NOT an announcement. We just like the name!

I love camping! That's nice you went home to sleep. I was thinking I should've done that a few months ago when I went camping and Macy wasn't thrilled with the sleeping arrangements.

Now I want a s'more.
