Camping out is alot of fun for our family. We bought a 10x14 tent from Bass Pro Shop back in Sept. It sleeps our whole family of 10 plus added room to walk around, Ben and I sleep on a 4'' thick full size futon mattress, the children have egg shell foam and sleeping bags.
We set it up in the front yard and tried it out.
The baby even likes camping.
We made a fire pit to roast marshmallow's in.
10-10-10 was the big day. We set off to the State Park, Ben took a day off and we had a great time, it was refreshing for our whole family.
On the way we got .99 cent ice cream cones from Mc Donalds...they were on sale for .69 cents....What a treat!
The leaves are changing and it's Beautiful!
We got there set up camp and had a cook out....hamburgers, hot dogs, homemade potato salad, Davidoff Noodles ( one of our family favorites!) and Orange soda, and Sierra Mist.
We made Everything cookies ( Benjamin's favorite cookie), and James Wanner cookies (my favorite cookie, it's made with corn oil)
We had a marshmallow roast and went to bed. It was dark and we did not get any pictures.
The next morning we went on a hike...
Before we left a nice lady we met took a family picture of us. Our oldest son Benjamin age 23 was not able to come camping with us, though he wanted too, I wish he could have been in the picture.
This is one of the ways my family has a fun time together!
How fun! I'm so glad you all were able to go camping. Thanks for sharing the pictures!
