The guys talked me into going camping last weekend. It's been about 10 or 11 years since I've gone camping...so I decided to go. We went to Promised Land State Park in the Pocono Mountains. Eric and I use to camp there once a summer...back in the day!
This is one of my favorite pictures from the weekend.
We had great camping weather. Not too hot during the day and cool enough in the evening for a sweatshirt and a campfire.
We experimented with making s'mores in these things...but it didn't work so well! They were good though for heating english muffins!
I was most excited to take Brady on this 2 mile trail.
I think it might be the most beautiful place I've ever been to in Pennsylvania.
When Eric took me on this trail 15 yrs. ago...I never could have imagined our life
as it is today...or, that I would
be back someday to walk the trail with our son. It was a little emotional for me.
The beauty of the woods, and the rocks and the water...it's such a spiritual place.
The trail starts on this bridge....come check it out with us!
That's the end of the trail....are you with me?
There's still more to our camping trip!
We had a serious checkers tournament one evening.
I bet you're wondering who the big winner was.
I'll just keep you guessing...I don't want to brag or anything. :)
We played a little frisbee...this boy never minds posing for pictures!
Went to get some ice cream!
Collected sticks and chopped wood.
We checked out the beach area...which was crowded by the afternoon.
Hours of fishing...and only a few fish were caught and one big turtle.
The turtle snapped the line and got away before I could get a picture!
I'm glad I joined the guys on this
long three day weekend...even if camping isn't my most favorite thing. In all honesty, I'm not a very good camper. Well, I am good at packing up and organzing all our gear and bringing good food along. I think if it weren't for all the dirt, I would enjoy it more. It really bothers me too when Brady is dirty. I know, ridiculous. On the way home, I told Eric and Brady that the next time they go camping, they can do themselves a favor and leave me at home! They both claimed they had a great weekend and want me to come again next time. I think they were just being nice...because I'm pretty sure they would have a better time without me!
