Mighty Eagles Backyard Campout June 28, 2011

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!

One of Zach’s friends brought over a kitty for us all to cuddle with.















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!
