Autumnal Equinox

The Autumnal Equinox already?? It barely feels like it around here (except for shorter days). So with temperatures still in the 80s, we’re heading to the beach. Well, beach for Idaho … the Salmon River is home to some of the most gorgeous white sandy beaches I’ve ever seen.

I’m packing the s’mores, the girls, sleeping bags, and our …

blankies (I still sleep with the blankie my grandmother made for me), and we’re heading out for one last camp trip before fall is officially here on September 22.

Since I’m taking both girls (5 and 3) and the dog solo (hubby will be helping his best friend move), I have a crucial list for success …

lots of water

lots of snacks

lots of sunblock

lots of wet wipes

And good hats since it’ll be a warm one!

The rest seems to always work out but those few things are crucial … oh, and our blankies. I think since it’s just us girls, I’m going to glamp it up and pack our pretty pillows also.

So here’s to one last trip before the leaves turn and it’s a bit too chilly for camping with little ones. Stay tuned for a few photos when we return. Happy Autumn!

    Sounds like a great weekend! Given your lattitude, no doubt autumn is not far behind either.

    Oh, how great! We were just at the Grand Canyon & enjoyed the camping, even with the frost on the tent one morning. I love fall & all that it entails, but I’ll have great memories of camping with my grandgirl, Jade. When I get home from this trip, there will be all the work of cleaning out the garden & the rest of the fall work. (Hard to think of it when we are in Oklahoma where it is supposed to be in the 90’s today!) So I’m enjoying this last leg of our trip. And when I get home, the leaves on the trees should be turning colors. The smell from the woods will be fall-ish & I’ll be in love with fall all over again. Have a great trip ll you girls!
