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.
What are your favorite camping traditions?
Stay tuned for some Hump Day Humor.
