Brooke’s second camping trip was a success. I always worry that I am not going to sleep very well when we are camping but nope, once I hit the pillow (actually we forgot pillows) I don’t move until it starts getting light in the morning.
I know, I know, that face below is just too much. You just want to eat those cheeks. It’s okay to admit it.
We ended up having about 30 friends at the campsite and we weren’t technically right on the beach but pretty darn close.
The ocean was just on the other side of the trees. I think I must have dropped some of my s’more on Brooke’s glove or something because she could not stop chewing on it.
The greatest part about going car camping compared to going backpacking is that the food is way better. When we go backpacking we eat oatmeal and soup. With car camping we have a full on barbecue. Eating food outside is awesome and eating around a camp fire just makes it that much better.
She is clearly mine judging by her love for Sweet Baby Ray’s bbq sauce. I am embarrassed at the rate I go through those bottles and some of the foods that I put it on is just plain old weird.
I will be the first to admit that my marshmallow roasting skills were not the best but I was holding Brooke and roasting the marshmallow at the same time and this is the best I could do. I feel like I need to redeem myself and retry my marshmallow roasting this week to prove that I am usually really good at making the perfect one.
Billy and I went to bed first out of the group at 11 pm because I honestly don’t think I could force myself to stay up one minute later than that if I wanted. Bangs Friend texted me at 5:25 to see if we were still on for our run and I am amazed that we went out and did it even though we were camping. I guess that shows our deep love for the run, especially the Saturday morning run.
We came back and had a feast of fruit, cinnamon rolls (made in a dutch oven!) and the best egg scramble ever also made in the dutch oven. That dutch oven produces some amazing things.
Are you a camper? Do you enjoy going camping? Last place you went camping?
Do you prefer sweet breakfasts or savory/egg type breakfasts?
Does it feel like summer where you are? Parents reading: are your kids out of school yet for the year?
