This past Friday, we left for our very first family camping trip!
Do you think we took enough stuff?!
The weather was beautiful and our campsite was tucked away in a little wooded area.
Putting up the tent.
Grace and Emily shared a bed on the left side.
Benjamin was on the left and Phillip and I were in the middle of the tent. Does it count as real camping if you use air mattresses? ;0)
Starting a fire.
Once the fire was going, our "Home Sweet Home Campsite" was all set up!
This was our view from behind our tent. There were plenty of birds to see and hear, including a Whip-Poor-Will that kept me awake most of the first night.
We also brought along two hammocks that were nice to relax in.
Off to go fishing...

We gave up after awhile, but it was still fun.
In addition to relaxing and fishing, there was plenty of time for eating yummy campfire food.
This was our breakfast the first morning: sausage, eggs and pancakes.

Emily was the best "biscuit on a stick" maker.
And of course we had s'mores in the evenings. Thank you for looking at a few picture highlights from our trip, we can't wait to go again in the fall!
