Our topic last week was in preparation for our annual family camping trip. And when I say family camping trip, I mean ALL our families. In some ways it feels like we are just one big family on the nights when we all pitch our tents together and start cooking around the campfire. We share a campsite, our food, and the joy of watching the kids play and get dirty. We were sad that Jen and her family couldn't be there. Although, I'm sure they are not sad to have missed the rain that drenched us from about 1:30 in the morning until we left the next day. Here are a few, or maybe a bit more than a few photos of the things that made this less-than-24-hour camping trip so memorable.
Jenni prepared the kabobs for dinner. They were amazing. Marinated chicken, red onion, pineapple, and sweet peppers cooked over the hot coals make a very tasty and filling meal after setting up camp. The best part is how easy they are--you prepare them before you leave home and the clean up in minimal. Mmmmm!
We found an amphitheater with a stage at our campground where the kids had a great time doing the hokey pokey and getting their wiggles out.
