We've been dying to go camping for a long time and we've talked and talked about it with our friends - WE FINALLY MADE IT! We made it late. It was crazy. We pitched our tents in the dark on rocks and hills next to a highway, but we made it! :) We survived our crazy kiddos and the dangers of camping (and the sleeplessness) and managed to have a terrific time! The kids, I think, especially enjoyed being outside and being with friends. We sang songs, ate yummu food - Brookie had her first s'more. :) - she's a big fan! It was grand! I reccomend Detroit Lake (but find a spot closer to the lake and farther from the road...). We saw some cool mushrooms, went on walks, chilled around the fire and all in all had a good time. Thanks Kelly, Sally, Clara and John for accompanying us on this wild adventure.
