Camping Fun and Fail… :-/

I forgot the third sleeping bag!!!

We had a blast though. I took the girls and Long Dog up to the mountains to play, shoot and camp. We all got loads of sun. Explored the area.

“Cool a snake mom can we eat it?!”

“No it’s too small.”

We’ve caught and eaten snake before but it was a 5″ long gopher snake. My girls are very adventurous. They make this momma proud!

Roasted dogs and smores for dinner.

And did a little target practice. My 11yo fell in love with shooting which will make getting ready for hunting season loads of fun.

She was so proud of hitting her target she wanted a picture. She’s a natural like her momma.

Collected enough firewood from around the area to last us until bedtime and for breakfast making in the morning. We got tent set up and unrolled the sleeping bags to discover I failed to bring one sleeping bag and it got into the 30’s last night so we packed up and made it home about 9pm.

We were all really disappointed. We’ll probably try again next weekend.

Honestly it’s probably a good thing we had to come home early, cause boy camping fun takes a different set of muscles because I am sore in new ways.

2700 calories burned in one day! It usually only takes 2100 for my average on the farm day.

Sunday is definitely going to be a day of rest. Someone bring me a Bloody Mary!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

First campfire cooking of the year…

The teenager is back. An hour’s drive up into the mountains and we packed her up and brought her back.

Not before planning a stop at the grocery store for some BBQ worthy meat. Yep hotdogs and smores were on our list.

It’s not too often we eat store bought dogs but in the spirit of sunny weather we have to go old school. Dogs and smores over a campfire.

I managed to eat two dogs without taking a picture. Oops!

The marshmallows this year are smore ready.

Very square.

But I like eating marshmallows one burnt layer at a time and the new square marshmallows don’t come apart in layers. So annoying. But still yummy.

Well it’s almost 9pm and sunrise comes early nowadays so I have to crash.

Hope you had a great Friday and have a fun weekend!

Good night!
