Camping Trip #6....Back to Hamilton Branch

So I am finally getting around to posting some of our pictures from our last camping trip this weekend. We went back to an old favorite so we could guarantee a good time. The weather was good. The sun was hot and it was the perfect final goodbye to summer as Labor Day came and went.
The two older boys made great fishing memories. They even caught something in their little bait trap.
K taught me how to skip rocks! Yes, my 5 year old had to teach me. After almost 30 years I've finally learned. Once I caught on to it we then had Rock Skipping Competitions. It was super fun. Daddy actually made it all the way to the other side of the bank at one point. I think his highest skip was 10, and K and I tied for 6. We skipped so many rocks on this trip that we all came back with sore shoulders.
We played in the dirt, sand, water, and sun!

and at night we hung out under our camper lights by the fire roasting weenies.
This was a wonderful, much needed end to the summer camping fun we've had! Now we're ready to take a bit of a camping break to welcome in the fall weather which is sure to bring fun adventures of apple orchards, pumpkin picking, and trick or treating!


  1. Don't wait 'til next summer. You'll love a Fall camping trip when the leaves are at their prettiest, where a flannel shirt is king and where the warm bed couldn't be cozier.

  2. You have such a beautiful family! What cute kiddos!
