Yahoo! Spring has sprung! We went on our first camping trip of 2011! Can you tell I’m excited since I’ve used exclamation marks at the end of each sentence so far!?!
So, the reason why it is entitled the “The Lost Camping Post” is because I had this all ready to go during the long stretch of time from the April 1st to the April 11th posting only I forgot that I had it ready to go. How convenient, huh. It doesn’t always pay to plan ahead when you’ve forgotten that you planned ahead.
We decided to try a state park down south that we hadn’t been to yet. It was pretty fun and it turned out to have a lot of hiking/biking trails around the park. The weather was supposed to be uncooperative and rain the entire 6 days we were there but surprisingly we had patches of nice weather. If it wasn’t pouring we tried to get out and hike, bike, or walk the dog. It’s a good thing mom and dad bought me a new rain jacket/biking jacket though because even when we started out with no rain sometimes it came on while we were out enjoying nature.
The two puddles (on the bottom left) became one over the rain filled trip and all the boys (including me) in the park had fun stomping or riding through it . . .
Love the boardwalks! Immediately after mom snapped this picture I was down. That wood was super slippery and you can see there is a slight decline to the walk that I am coming upon . . .
Mom wanted to capture how tall the tree was but it just wasn’t possible. Dad is adding his perspective . . .
Same monster old growth tree that mom was trying to capture in the other photo . . .
