After days on end of packing and cleaning, on Thursday we headed up north for a quick camping trip with some friends. It was such a nice break! Plus we got to try out our new tent that we bought a couple months ago. This one is a 3 person tent, which was great. Eric and I were tired of being rolled on all night long by Aspen in our 2 person.
We'd never gone camping with friends before, and were really big fans of the experience.
There's lot of benefits! For example: other kids to play with your kid, other moms to walk to the bathroom with :), and let's face it: you never really get to know someone the way you do when you're chatting around a campfire until midnight, telling all kinds of outrageous stories!
Friday morning we all got up and took a spontaneous trip to Cracker Barrel, and then Eric, Aspen and I finished up with a hike. It was a great break for us, and we can't wait to take another camping trip with friends in the future!
