Family Camping: A Glimpse of Us

I have really slowed down blogging. Like a lot. Especially this Summer. Blogging and I are redefining our relationship a bit, but more on that another day. One of the reasons I have slowed to an agonizing pace this Summer is because of things like this little family camping trip we had a few weeks ago.

At the beginning of the Summer I admitted to myself that I personally wasn't enjoying the juggle of blogging and enjoying the Summer with my kids. I also was ashamed to find that my camera had a few more blog pictures on it than family time pictures. So the blog took a back seat and Summer took a front seat.

I just wanted share a bit of our Summer and to share A Glimpse of Us, which I may be doing more here and there in order to promote better documentation of our life on my part.

So we decided to go camping.

We packed up our camping gear. We drove a few hours away from home. We set up camp. We waited for the arrival of our friends who joined us.

We were out of cell phone range. It was glorious.

We enjoyed our outside home away from home.

There was getting along amongst siblings.

We didn't worry about doing hair or keeping our clothes clean.

Or washing our faces.

We ate. We ate some more. We hiked. We ate again.

We disturbed the peace of some bugs.

We took in all the sights and sounds.

We climbed. We laughed.

Did I mention we ate?

These campfire donuts were my crowning glory. They were amazing.

They were enjoyed by all.

Camping really is the best. This coming from a non-camper too. While I may not love dirt, bugs, and sleeping on the ground, I can't think of a better sacrifice. The time away from electronics, schedules, and all the crazy is one of the best things. I wouldn't say not to a pop up camper though. Ha.

I hope you enjoyed this Glimpse of Us.
