Summer Camping

We went camping Monday afternoon, returning this morning. Eight families went, with seventeen kids altogether. It was a blast!

Our site was at the Greenbush Group Campsite, in the Northern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. It's a beautiful location, with trails all around, so the kids have a lot of fun exploring.

We spent most of Saturday at Elkhart Lake. The kids built a intricate sand structure and played a lot in the sand and water. The mamas (and two dads) ate lunch, snacked, sunned, and had some good beer and wine. :)

I love camping with these girls -- the food is fantastic! Some of the food we had: bean/rice nachos, aisan salad, quesadillas, melted brie with bread, blueberry pancakes, hoppel poppel, sandwiches, and various delicious dips for chips. We also roasted marshmallows and made smores. Everyone helps everyone else out, which makes things so much nicer.

We got rained on at least twice, which, while not great for packing up, made for good frog hunting.

We'll be going back in September for the annual Not Back To School camping trip.
