We had another super weekend for backyard camping at the Simmonds’ home. The initial weather forecast earlier in the week had predicted rain all weekend but aside from a 10 minute mild shower Friday evening we stayed pretty dry. The weekend started off with our traditional Friday night meal of beans and roasted wieners. Then we set up the tents
before enjoying some s’mores for dessert
The next morning after a breakfast of omelets in a bag and some exercises
the boys went for an early morning swim
And by the time they got done they were ready for lunch!
We decided to go on a nature hike next
and the kitten followed along behind!
When we got back home we threw some Coca Cola chicken in the dutch oven and let it cook while the boys went swimming again
Then we sat around the fire and enjoyed each other’s company before finally going to bed.
Sunday morning after church Alvin put some biscuits in his new camping oven
And we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of biscuits and gravy
It was a super weekend and we can’t wait until the next one in September!
