Camp fires and Marshmallows

This past Labor day weekend we went camping with my In Laws. They drove up from Florida and met us at the camp site in North Carolina. It was such a relaxing and beautiful weekend. We stayed in a small cabin which only had beds in them, no bathrooms or running water. It was diffently more of a camping experience than the one we experience this past July.  We had a great time catching up and watching the guys play Ladder Ball. Lots of Camp fires and roasting marshmallows were in our nightly routine. LK loved cooking hotdogs on sticks over the camp fire.  We took LK fishing at a lake near by, they didn't catch anything but we had a blast.  I will have to say this was one our better trips this summer. And what a way to end the summer with Family and Great Memories.

My son told us, Now Mommy this is REAL camping! So we knew we had to take him camping in Shenadoah Va, my husband and I went camping in Shenadoah soon after we met. It was one our favorite trips together. So this will be a surprise for our son LK he will not know about  this until we get there!! No cabins there, we will be pitching our 12 person tent for two nights and using nature for well you know! :)

Our Dog Maxine came with us
