Memorial Weekend Camping

Every year for Memorial Weekend I have gone camping with my family. We almost always go to the area. The fishing was great, even though I only because we had a fish fry. Adam went out quite a bit, which was really good for him. We missed the boat (ha, ha) on taking the kids out even though we made it a point to get life jackets before we arrived. We had a great time with our family and friends.  It was great to see some very dear friends from way back! 

Here are a couple (you know, just a few) pictures of the weekend.

Every camping trip deserves a good book or two....

I think every kid loves Candyland.

Our good friend the Matter's joined us again this year.  Brad & Kris are Karley's Godparents and she adores them!

My sister & I polishing off her awesome cucumber dip!
Notice the book?

Cousins enjoying a bike ride together.

Sophie enjoying her own delish treat.

Karley Jane on her little bike.

Now this is what camping is really all about...

The biggest and the littlest cousins.

And the biggest kid enjoying a nice bike ride.

What we all come Mom's good old fashioned fish fry.
