Down by the Campfire

We love camping!! Earlier this summer, though we sold our pop-up. We've had it three years and have loved our adventures with it, but it was time for an upgrade! About a month ago we bought a bigger camper and this weekend we took it out for our first trip along with my parents who got a new fifth wheel just about the time we got ours!

We headed out Thursday night and even let the kids play hooky on Friday! I still had to work Friday morning, but there is Wi-Fi everywhere now, so I hooked up in the rec center for Friday morning, got my work done and then off for family fun!! Halloween camping is always fun, too b/c most places have lots of events and trick-or-treating for the kiddos!

Aaron's favorite part is fishing - kid loves to fish!!

Which makes his daddy very happy b/c daddy loves to fish, too!

The place where we staying had a Halloween Carnival...the kids had a blast and were so happy to wear their costumes (Aaron forgot the jeans for his costume so he had to just wear shorts)...and they got to go trick-or-treating on a hayride.

And I even kept up with my running while we were camping...so I excused myself to have a s'more while we were camping b/c that is a must have while camping, right??
And I couldn't believe it, but my daddy had never had a s'more, so the kids had to fix up one for their Geddo!!

We had a wonderful time and I cannot wait to go again...which will actually be next weekend - all the family is going this time. We will all have our campers lined up together side by side at the lake!! We can't wait to get out there again!
