Oh, A Camping We Will Go - Day 1

Wednesday, November 26, 2008


We packed up the camper late Tuesday night and were on our way early Wendesday morning. This is our beautiful new pop-up, a gift from our good friends. The Caterpillars were more than ready to be on their way.

We followed them up to one of their favorite campgrounds, with a quick stop at McDonald's for lunch. As soon as we arrived, the Caterpillars and the Royal kids happily went off to explore the woods.

Within 30 minutes they had come back with an array of wildlife, some still breathing - some not.
Princess had found a beautiful butterfly that had moved on to the great beyond.
Queen was in charge of dinner, turkey tacos, which we cooked at our campsite (the two were right next to each other, which was perfect).

We had a roaring campfire, thanks to King, and then Hubby took the Caterpillars to take showers while I set up their beds. (Here's the dining area before beds and after it became the Caterpillar sleeping area.)
We allowed them (along with Prince) to watch a short movie, before shuttling him off to his camper and putting ours to sleep.

Hubby and I had a nice space for sleeping, also. Plus - you can't go wrong with a HEATED camper, especially on a night that got below freezing.
It was a wonderful first day.

I love seeing the pictures of the pop-up and your campsite! It looks like an AWESOME camping experience. (esp. the heat at night :)
