The camping trip was a success and the kids were all returned safely to their parents, although much dirtier than when they arrived! (for sure!) :)
I had a lot of fun with the food this time. I was trying to think of meals that kids would enjoy but that would be different than the normal fare you have when camping.
I came up with:
- Pita pizzas on the grill
- Eggs in the Dutch Oven with orange rolls cooked in orange rinds
- For dessert we had marshmallows (of course!) and banana boats
Listening intently to a great mountain man story about Hugh Glass.
A rattlesnake was spotted not by me but by Audrey and another little girl who were walking back to our house from the camping area. As they were walking they heard a rattle and looked over and saw a diamond back rattlesnake all coiled ready to strike and they were only about 1 1/2′ away. They of course ran away. So thankful the Lord watched over them.
I hope we’re making great memories for the kids as well as giving them an appreciation of the outdoor life – learning how to build campfires, finding their way around in the woods and just having a good time.
