Memorial Day Camping Trip

June 19, 2009

Should have published this post sooner. Wow I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since Memorial Day. Funny how that weekend was some of the best weather we’ve had so far this summer!

It was so nice to go camping Memorial Day weekend and just leave everything behind (especially the cell phones) and enjoy just being away. I didn’t even keep track of the time, except by the trusty old sun. We had yummy food as usual (what’s camping without great food, especially with my family). We had finger steaks and homemade fries one night, and some scones and Keith’s yummy cobbler. Nachos and snack stuff another. Breakfasts were HUGE every morning of course! The whole deal – eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, bacon, ham, bisuits, etc. We definately do more than just the usual hot dog on a stick!

We mostly lounged around the campfire, played horseshoes, and visited. We fished one afternoon until we got rained out, and Monday went for a 4-wheeler ride for a couple hours. It was beautiful out to Kilgore. Still early in the year though. The trees had just barely gotten leaves and not much grass or flowers were up. It was a little cold in the shade.

The kids had a great time. The girls played with Paige in the “Fort” they had actually started making in the same spot from last year. This year they added to it. They also had Dusty help them dig a big hole to play in… I don’t know why… they just wanted a big hole for some reason! We also bought a little BB gun which entertained Dillan for hours playing army and shooting at targets.

To bad we had to return to reality! Oh well, I guess it makes us appreciate the fun times all the more.
