Fall Camping Trip 2011

Two weeks ago, we went camping with other families from our church.  I didn’t take as many pictures as I normally do.  I think this was mostly because I didn’t feel very well during this trip.  Thankfully, I’m feeling much better now.

Here’s little Isaac playing while daddy and the boys are setting up the tents.

Friday morning, we took a short walk to one of the playgrounds so the kids could play.

There’s a really old tree next to the playground that the kids love to climb every time we’re there.

Here’s our monkeys tree climbers:

Friday afternoon, Rob, the kids, and I went for a walk to the Alligator Marsh Boardwalk.

What are the kids looking at?

They found crabs all in the water.

They were everywhere.  These crabs were pretty big. The kids got to watch them run along the bottom sideways and bury themselves in the dirt.

Heading back

Thursday is spent mostly getting our site set up.  We enjoy supper and a campfire at night fellowshipping with the other families that came.

Friday is our day to explore and play.  We enjoy another group campfire. Then, Saturday is the day to take down our stuff and pack it back up.  We always enjoy a hot dog lunch with Pastor Dale and Mrs. Pat before heading back home.

It’s always a lot of fun.  The kids have a blast.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling very well during our trip and it was cold the first night.  Thankfully, we planned easy and quick meals which made for quick clean-up.  This made it more enjoyable. 

We’re already booked for our spring camping trip!  Does your family do any camping?
