Mother..Daughter Camping trip

My daughter wanted to go camping for her birthday. We invited a few couples but they weren't able to come, it didn't help that we only gave them a weeks notice. My husband is on the down swing of his life roller coaster, he didn't want to go.

Stephanie and I packed the truck, and went up to Hurkey creek about 40 minutes from our home and spent the night in the open air. It has been a while since we've gone camping. We have all the equipment and this was not the first time I've loaded a vehicle full of girls and went camping. Story/stories for another time.

The first thing we did was set up the tent, we tried to set up the tent. It's kind of hard to set up a tent when the tent bag doesn't have the tent poles! Luckily I had brought the pop up shade and stephanie came up with the idea to attached the tent by it's hooks and strings to the metal frame of the pop up. Ingenues!

Then we did what everyone does when they go camping, we read:

We built a fire:

We had Smores:

Slept on the hard floor and woke up stiff, so we had to go walk it off in the parks 7 mile trail that runs along the creek.

We had a great time! The whole time we were up there all we kept saying is 'why don't we do this more often?' It's only 20 bucks a night, not to far from home and we really don't need much. Probably because we don't plan it! So after my little trade show trip to AZ next week we will be planning a few days in the Woods!

That looked like a great bit of Mother Daughter bonding, brilliant. That is surely what memories are made of. :)
