We Went Camping...Campsite Photos

To better understand how it was when we were camping, here are some campsite photos for you. Beach pictures will follow.

Here is my Mom's adorable little camper. It even has a little wood stove in it. SO cute! See why it gets so many looks? Next to it is my sister's and Baby Backup's tent. Notice the woods behind her....raccoons love that area. They were especially fond of my sister....but more about that later.Here is GM and Jr and Egirls tent looking toward our campsite. Really, I wish I had gotten a better pic of just the TOYS at our site but I forgot about it, which is hard to believe since I was stumbling all over them every day.Out campsite and the main place to gather. Notice our food tent to keep raccoons out (it didn't work), the boys tent, our camper (that I backed up all alone...sorta, my Dad directed me. And he is a great director. And it was my FIRST TIME backing it up. Thanks, Father dear!)Here is Hubby teaching Egirl how to cook. Notice the hovering S3 and S4. They were sure they would starve. We ate every meal cooked over the campfire. Here is S3 and Jr working on making ice cream. We made it, but it was rather soupy. Great for a shake malted sort of ice cream drink thing. I think we needed to stir more, but Hubby wasn't there to crank it for us or tell us when it was done.


GIANT marshmellows my Mom found made very yummy s'mores. The boys could overlook the pink color for the yummy gooeyness of it all.


Here is Baby Backup sporting some rocking reading light glasses.

The boys, not really ready to go home yet.

Looks like a blast! Oh, and your mom's camper is awesome! What year is that? Looks vintage...very cool!

The camper IS vintage. It's a 1953. Dad hasn't done much to it because he likes it looking old that way. The screen door is great. The little wood stove though, I just love love love that! It's perfect for one person, two people make it pretty tight, but Mom and Dad camp a lot of weekends in that little camper. It looks awsome when Dad pulls it with the Panel (1949). If you look up last year's camping stories, I think I have a pic of that......

Looks like you have a blast. Love the vintage camper.

Hope everyone is feeling good and the flu didn't make it through the whole bunch :0

We're going camping with our 2 boys this weekend. (2 year old and 5 month old), I'm trying to think of what toys to bring for 2 year old. Do you have any suggestions of must haves for a fun trip?

Denise said...

Jackie H, what toys do they love? Mine bring Tonka trucks and John Deere tractors. We also bring side walk chalk that either is loved or no one uses, depending on the trip. A few of the smaller cars and a Thomas train I keep in the camper only so when they go camping, my four year old is ECSTATIC, like it's Christmas. We are so busy biking and swimming that we don't do much "nothing to do" time at the campfire, except at night. We also, as much as I hate to admit it, bring a tv. Over tired boys love a movie night in the camper!

Thanks! Great idea to have something new or something he hasn't seen in a while!
