Last week was fall break, and we spent it camping with friends at Hardy Lake State Park. It was absolutely beautiful!
The guys hung out fishing on our friends’ pontoon boat and giving their electronics a break. Um… Well, they fished, at least. :) My little guy caught the most. Might be because he wasn’t texting every other minute. ;)
These were out campsites. Our little Jayco Pop up is the one on the right. The trees were just beautiful!
My oldest son and a friend slept on the boat one night. It was all good until about 4 in the morning when a cold front brought wind and rain sending them back to the campers.
Greta, as usual, enjoyed being a part of everything. She loves camping as much as we do!
There were several UNO games…
as well as our annual pumpkin carvings.
We took our bikes and enjoyed riding around the park. We also used them to ride to the comfort station, which was a good ways away.
The only bathroom close to us was a vault/pit style restroom. NOT something I wanted to brave in the middle of the night. Once in the daylight confirmed that. I was not about to slice through those cobwebs in the middle of the night. Nope. NOT HAPPENING.
In spite of the boys’ objections that the blind was too cool to pee in, I plunked my little porta-pot inside, strung some lights,and hung a roll of toilet paper. I must say, it made a happy little potty hut! I think it was much nicer than those stand alone outdoor shower shelters I saw on line.
I have NO idea why I didn’t do this LOOOONG ago. Seriously. It stayed nice and dry inside and as an added bonus, I could change in it when the boys beat me to the camper. Greta even napped there from time to time. It was worth every penny.
Here’s a picture of my boys chill’in in the camper. I applied my phone’s water color effect just for fun. :)
One day, my hubby and I made some crock pot apple crisp. It was SOOOO good! And easy, too! Tomorrow, I’ll share the recipe, so be sure to stop back!
It was a fun time, for sure!
What have you been doing to enjoy your fall?
