We had a perfectly perfect weekend at Family Camp! The weather was perfect, and we all had a fabulous time.
We arrived on Friday evening and were able to pitch our tent in a prime location. As it turns out, we were the only tent campers, so we had the field (and the bath house) to ourselves! We were able to pitch behind some small hills and beside the basketball court. In short, it was a perfect site.
After we set up camp, we headed to the fire circle to roast hotdogs:
The next morning, the kids were up bright and early and we had two hours to fill before breakfast:
We decided to take a short hike to the lake chapel before breakfast:
After breakfast, we took a hayride out to the camp farm. Issa got to help feed the goats:
We also got to help move the ducklings to their new home on the pond:
We had so much fun we plan to join the farm in March! You can join for the season, which means you commit to working there two hours a month in exchange for some of the produce. I have a feeling we will do much more than the two hours, though!
Issa almost caught a butterfly, too:
Sunday morning, we woke up just in time for breakfast. After breakfast, we played with new friends:
In short, it was exactly what we had hoped for. The kids have fallen in love with camping, and we all had a really great time. There is something wonderful about listening to crickets and watching the stars as you fall asleep, all cuddled up together in the chill air--it's pure magic.
