Our First Camping Trip of 2011

The first camping trip of the year is always so exciting! This year we took one a bit on the early side for us. We were invited to camp for free at Jellystone Park in Ashland, NH. They do an early camping weekend in June each year to honor foster parents and all they do. So we packed up and headed out with our dear friends the Lowman family. It was so much fun! We truly loved it. It was Nicole's first time camping with us. The pools were open...but oh so cold, but the kids still braved it both days! The pictures of our weekend truly tell the story. On the way home we stopped at the Rte 104 diner for some lunch on Sunday. That was great, too! Super weather, special fellowship, and spectacular family time! Who could ask for more? the 1st day..Glenn and Grace said.."No's too cold to swim!"

We met some new friends. This is James...he LOVED Junior!

Breakfast of scrambled eggs and home fries and yogurt! Yum!

This was the favorite spot. The cones of water randomly fill up and dump down on you!

Our camping trip wouldn't be complete without our annual pot luck dinner. On the menu: Baked potato bar, beef stroganoff, fruit salad, cherries, banana bread! Yummy!

The girlies in bed!

The boys sleeping in!

We attended a wonderful pancake breakfast at the campground on Sunday morning.

Nicole loved meeting Yogi!

We also went on a wagon ride with Cindy Bear.

Sigh...time to pack up already! Many hands make light work!

We ended our camping day with a game of wiffle ball!

 We had a wonderful time, and can't wait to take our next trip. Our next camping trip is to Hiram, Maine to stay with our dear friends the Collomy Family over the 4th of July!
