camping with little people

We made a new friend on our final-days-of-summer camping trip in the “smoky mountains.” (Idaho has been plagued with wildfires these past few weeks.)

A serious game of hot lava ensued! Do you remember this one from childhood? The sand is hot lava, so over the rocks one must climb, never, ever touching the sand.

Snuggling next to my girls in the tent each night was nothing short of marvelous. That great big sigh a mother gives as she gazes up at the stars while listening to her babies asleep by her side was all mine. Life is good.

Officially happy Fall to you all!

    I am so happy that you and the girls had a such a good time! YES! I remember Hot Lava! Ahh….the games we play- so simple and silly yet so FUN! I have my glamping tent set up in the back yard, and my DD and I have managed 2 sleepouts out there in the past week. I am lovin Fall glampin! Makes me wish even more that I had a wall tent with a woodstove, so I could glamp all winter! (of course some of my friends and family think I’ve lost my mind!)
    Thanks for sharing.

    Sounds great! I love camping in the fall. The smells are awesome; leaves turning are beautiful; and fishing is chilly but relaxing!!!

    What a great weekend everyone had! I never heard about the game hot lava before but it sounds like fun and most likely challenging. It is always good to get out into nature and enjoy all there is. After being away from the city and routine, we can reflect on just how precious Mother Nature is and it allows us to remember to be considerate of her in our daily lives.

      Your beach sister!
