A few weeks ago we took a little camping trip down at Douglas State Fishing Lake. The kids had a ball. We only camped one night-- which was perfect.
It was our first time using the tent!
We had a delicious meal of hot dogs.
I bought a little raft at Aldi.. haha. for $15. It held up just fine, but we kept it short, cause Aldi's not exactly known for its high quality products. That, and we got stuck on a branch at the beginning and didn't know if that put a hole in it or not.We decided to go on a walk around the lake. It was getting late and the sun was setting, I don't know why I didn't grab my camera! I used my phone for these pics. And Ross was a dear and ran half a mile to get my camera but when he got back the golden light was gone. Oh well.
Ross is a fire master. Smore's are sooo good.
We had a decent night. Leah didn't sleep very well, I think she was cold. I was a little chilly too, and finally pulled Leah right next to me so we would both be warmer.
Cereal for breakfast. Next camping purchase on the list: a stove!
By the morning the kids pretty much looked homeless.
And don't mind me while I post some pictures of rocks dropping into the water.
It was very fun! Next time we'll have to invite some friends join us.
