I just got home from a fun camping trip. It was just my sister, my great niece and me. No men allowed.
Well, except this big boy, who seemed to love our camp area. He would come by several times a day. He even brought his wife and three babies with him a few times.
He was so friendly and tame. We named him George.
We went to a KOA Camp Ground. It was the first time I had been to one and I was very impressed.
They have so much fun stuff to do. Of course, hiking is always a big thing when you go camping.
A big storm came and all the rocks they used was washed away. But, the group came back again this year and did the same thing.
It was a perfect place to go cool off and get refreshed from a long day outside.
Tether ball always reminds me of when I was a kid. I loved to play tether ball on the play ground.
They had lots of bikes you could rent and of course there were lots of trails to ride the bikes on.
This was called an Air Pillow. It was really big and like a trampoline. Only it has big fans blowing it up.
Kids loved this...so did some adults. Plus, it was free!
The camp ground has places for tents and RV's. They also have tepees and cabins you can rent.
Here Trinity is making dessert for us. Do you have any idea what she is making?
She made us brownies with walnuts. YUM!
I bet you wonder how she was able to cook brownies outside. Don't you?
Warning! If you try these, you may never want to go back to normal S'Mores again! They were so good, they should be outlawed.
I think one of the best things the camp ground had to offer was the Zip Line. My sister and I didn't go on it but Trinity did! She said it was a blast.
We had so much fun and so many laughs. We did a lot of things we never have done before and at night we loved looking up at the night sky with all the billions of stars.
Living in the city we don't really see many stars due to all the light.
To me though, I think I enjoyed the hours and hours of talking. Telling stories about the past and dreaming about the future. Telling scary stores was so fun, we ended up going to bed early just so we could lay in our tent, snuggle up and get scared.
So many memories were made. It was a trip we will never forget.
