This spring break we did a little camping with Grandma Birdie and the Simmons.
It was just under a 2 hour drive. We were well out of the city and could see tons of stars at night.
The day we arrived, the fire ban was lifted and we spent way too much money on fire wood. But being able to roast hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire was worth it.
We took a few hikes, drank too much wine/margaritas, the kids had fun playing in mud, which made me thankful we had showers. Kell took the kids fishing. We also saw lots of wildlife including frogs, rabbits, deer and armadillos!
On the way home we stopped by this awesome ice cream parlor and had a taste of civilization. The picture in the ice cream parlor was taken right after Freya lost her entire scoop of ice cream. So sad, but I took her over to the counter with her tear-filled-puppy-dog eyes and she got a refill in her cone. Really who can resist those eyes?
We were pooped out by the leisurely camping that we did.
