the happy campers...

I found these woodland scavenger hunt printables on pinterest

Joel took the weekend off and we went camping.
And it was pretty wonderful.
Even better than wonderful.
But if you're picturing me eight months pregnant and sleeping in a tent, that didn't happen.
uh huh.
We rented a camphouse instead and I praised the Lord for a/c and running water.

The kids had the time of their lives.
We were right on the lake and they caught fish around the clock.
They hiked, swam, grilled, made bonfires, picnics and torches.
They even set up their tents, just because the whole idea of it was pretty cool.
But they ended up sleeping inside with us.

It just felt so good to be together.
All of us in a one room camphouse.
And the great outdoors fairly spilling into our doorway.
We needed this.

It just might become an annual getaway for us.

baby Story xo

Astair was so set on catching a fish, and she did....eventually.  It was adorable.

barefoot and adventurous

love it.

we had the best fishing spot and our neighbors thought so, too

my favorite part of the day

and my favorite meal

definitely my favorite "mountain man"

torches Daddy made with the boys

I loved this post. Your trip looked like a wonderful perfect trip for the family and I am sure you will always treasure the memories. I also had to say those pictures are amazing. I wish I was as good with a camera. I just found your blog and am your newest follower. It's so nice to meet you!! I also love vintage cookbooks by the way. Don't do all that much cooking, but love the books and pictures, just like you!
I will be back!
Hugs and blessings,

Good luck with the last month of pregnancy, I know it gets a little hard to move around but it sounds like you are a very energetic person so I'm thinking you'll do fine!

Wow this really looks and sounds fun. I love all the pictures, but for some reason the one that stands out the most is the one with the twinkling lights up above. I would have loved that as a kid camping. So glad things are going well =)
