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.

Healthy Eats While Camping

Can you eat healthy when camping?  All my instincts say pack chips, hotdogs, pop tarts….all the goodies that aren’t good for you. LOL

After cruising the net, I found out that healthy eating while in the great outdoors is a lot easier than I thought.

Cooking doesn’t get much easier than this….pile chopped zucchini, onion, peppers, carrots, tomatoes in tin foil and cooked in on the camp fire. YUM!!!

Anything piled up in foil reminds us of cooking over an open fire, but what exactly is in this pile? Squash, onions...

Looking for something that is meatier…how does Chicken Gyros sound? My mouth is watering just looking at these!
