Getting out

This weekend we hitched up the trailer and set off to 

It was perfect.
Well there were definitely times that weren't perfect
like when the kids were driving each other crazy in the car 
or when the baby did.not.sleep. all night long
but it was perfect because we were doing what we love and most important we were doing it together. 

I'm always amazed at how much fun the kids have doing nothing.
Well not nothing but you know...not being entertained by anything but their imaginations. 
They spent the day exploring, counting and sorting rocks, climbing trees, jumping in piles of leaves and pretending. 





It was such a beautiful day! 
Sunny but not too hot with a slight breeze.

The park is surrounded by a ton of giant oak trees. 
They looked so beautiful with the light peeking through the branches. 
And the limbs were just perfect for tree climbing. 

One of my favorite parts of camping is the evening fire. 
With lots of roasted marshmallows of course. 

And after the kids were asleep the Mr. and I enjoyed a quiet game of cribbage next to the fire. 

There was also an awesome play ground for the kids. 

But to be honest they preferred hanging out in the trees instead. 

What did you guys do over the weekend?

Oh and in case you were wondering the tent trailer was awesome! We love tent camping but the convenience of the trailer just can't be beat. It takes so much less time to set up and tear down camp and you can keep the tent trailer loaded with all your camping gear/necessities so you have less packing to do before a trip. I basically just packed our clothes and some food and we set off.  So easy.
