One reason my blog posts are lagging behind is that we took last weekend to get away and have a little family time. We traveled to a nearby state park that we hadn’t visited before and set up camp for the weekend. Although the skies were rainy on the way there we managed to have enough dry weather for a campfire when we arrived. The skies were cloudy all weekend but no more rain drops presented themselves for the remainder of the weekend. Along with my husband there was our two year old grandson, his mommy and her boyfriend. We were all a bit curious and nervous about taking a two year old camping but he was the very definition of a “happy camper”! The weekend included a nice long canoe ride down the river (with time to explore the shore along the way when we got restless), a hiking trip, plus time to just enjoy being out in nature and relax around the campsite.
