The get-away

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!

FUN!!! I love camping. I agree about going with friends who have little kids too! That's the best idea. :)

Fun! Thats great you got to get out of the house after all your hard work! Is Aspen eating a cupcake? :) Or is it an organic treat ment to look like one?

I'm in. I can't wait to go camping. I am SO EXCITED about the notion of going camping and I have been wanting to find friends to go camping with. It doesn't always seem to work out, but I like the idea!!!

James and I love to camp but we realized the last time we went that it just isn't as fun without other people.
