:LIFE: Camping...

We had been talking about going camping all summer, but never seemed to quite get it accomplished.

Thanks to a little extra encouragement from Justin's parents, we finally got in a short trip this weekend with them and I am SO glad we did. It was a welcome retreat after an especially long run of extra-hour-weeks at work.

Kaitlin had been looking forward to it for some time as well. She was too young to remember the last time we went camping!

It started out Saturday afternoon with blue skies, beautiful temperatures, tent setup, a little fishing, and some homemade chili for supper.

Later that evening, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset, a warm campfire, toasted marshmallows, and, for Kaitlin, her very first s'more.

The night did get a bit chilly, but we came prepared with plenty of blankets.

The next morning, we woke up to a lake completely hidden by fog.

It was quite relaxing to watch the fog roll off the lake over the course of the morning.

I certainly hope we don't wait that long before our next camping trip!!
