Halloween Camping

We had a wonderful Halloween weekend camping with some of our greatest friends. We got out to our campsites Friday after school and set up our tents. By the time we got everything set up and everyone finally arrived, it was time for a campfire.  There's nothing like sitting around a campfire and chatting with friends. After the kids all went to bed, that's just what we did.

Saturday, we got up and made breakfast and then went for a hike. We spent the day hanging out and I even had to run home for a bit. Did I mention the campground is super close to home?! When I came back some more friends that weren't able to spend the night came out for the evening and we had a pumpkin carving contest. It was so much fun!

I won't write about everything we did, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Once again, I have to say, I am blessed to have amazing friends. We love our little group!!

Abby's giving me some advice on how to carve my pumpkin.

 Nothing better than playing with dirt and rocks when you're camping.

 Cara made donuts and they were yummy!

 Sam wants his ball!

He likes to drink water from the faucet.

Here are a couple I touched up of the girls. I've got plenty more to work on.

I know there are a lot of pictures in this post, but I want to do a better job of adding pictures of our life.  I take hundreds of pictures all the time and then I don't ever load them on here.  I'm going to do a better job of adding them so I can look back in years and know what I was doing during this time in my life.

I am so envious of your camping trip. Not only because you were able to go camping, but because it looks like you had a great time with people you really enjoy being around for a whole weekend getaway.

The pictures are great. I smiled through all of them because they are so sweet, some so innocent, but all of them very special.
