We went on our first family camping trip last weekend. Pilot Mountain State Park was absolutely beautiful. We had such a good weekend- perfect weather, yummy peanut butter S'Mores & chilli & cornbread (my smart husband suggested that for the first night- made them at home & just heated there. I made a big pot & put some in the freezer for a day like today!) We did have a rough night sleeping the first night- well T, KG, and I did. The next morning we had blueberry pancakes and then headed up the mountain. Hiking was great- the boys did really well hiking. even little T hiked all the way up the mountain. At the top we had a picnic lunch- yummy quesadillas & trail mix. Then we headed back down & drove to the river for fishing. That night we made pigs in a blanket over the fire and camping donuts. Another night for campfire songs and we added stories on a log- the boys each took turns telling stories. After all the excitement (and we pumped up the air mattress), we all slept well. We ended our trip with "junk food cereal" and more donuts and headed home. We got to see Grandma on the way home to tell some of our camping fun. I'm excited to go on lots more camping trips!
