Skipping Stones and Bonfires

This past weekend was the annual Mutual Aide campout. The weekend is chance for all the fire departments to get together and enjoy good food, good company and a lot of fun.

Here was our humble abode. Our tent was set up under a larger tent just in case it rained.

This was our view which was absolutely stunning. As you can see, Molly loved it as well. 🙂

Since this was JBear’s first time camping, we induldged in all the camping traditions. You can’t tell a ghost story without putting a flashlight under your chin. 😉 Sppppoookkkky.

And then there were the campfires at night; these were my favorite part of the entire trip. I just loved staring into the crackling flames and listening to all the stories and jokes being shared. It was great.

Of course the campfire cuddles played a huge part in it as well.


There was also  a fairly large pond packed with fish. JBear’s favorite thing to do was throw rocks into the water and watch the huge splash that would accompany it.

I even taught my little guy how to skip rocks. However, I will admit that I succumbed to the pressure of trying to skip a rock while being taped. You’ll just have to take my word that I am the master-rock-skipper (despite the video and what my hubby may say – LOL!)

All in all, it was a great time and a lot of great memories were made.
