Camping Again !

So on Wednesday i went camping again, it was such a blast and although i missed Sam, i enjoyed the break.

Day one was so much fun, we found a site and set up the tent. Then we went exploring it was a lovely site and a great pitch.IMG_3098 we were right by the river and some mini waterfalls.


we spent some of the day playing cards and scattergories, a little more exploring and then we looked at the stars.

Day two didn’t start particularly well neither of us sleep well and it was freezing all night. We drove to Kirkwood to get ice and firewood and got some coffee to warm us up.

We decided to take a small hike to a spot behind the campsite called the pot holes, it was really nice. There were large pools of water and rocks you could slide down into them, kind of like a natural water park.

My Mom in law and Sam visited today and we all had lunch together and then went down to the lake. Sam liked throwing rocks into the water.

Got back to camp long enough for Sam to fall twice.. he calmed down really quickly though. Then mom and Sam left. I cried for 10 minutes after they left, i have no idea why !

when i finally stopped crying, I cooked hotdogs over the fire for dinner, mine fell in the fire LOL. i had to cook two.

Ben decided that the firewood we got from the store wasn’t enough so we went scouting for wood and found a bit. Now people understand Ben likes his campfire big and burn-y lol so it should come as no big surprise he got the biggest piece of wood he could find.

once the fire was nicely stocked and giving us much need warmth we turned off our camp lights and got our chairs and watched the Perseid Meteor shower.

The shower is visible from mid-July each year, with the peak in activity being between August 9 and 14, depending on the particular location of the stream. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. They can be seen all across the sky, but because of the path of Swift-Tuttle's orbit, Perseids are primarily visible in the northern hemisphere. As with all meteor showers, the rate is greatest in the pre-dawn hours.

It was totally romantic and beautiful, watching the light streak across the sky was incredible
