We took our first camping trip of the year over Memorial Day weekend. We returned to a campground we go to pretty much every year now, down in South Jersey, right in the Pine Barrens.
It was a beautiful weekend and the kids had a great time swimming in the lake, playing on the beach and riding their new boogie boards.
I let Daddy talk me into taking them out on a swan paddle boat. Those things are NOT easy to paddle and it’s really rough when it’s 90 degrees out.
We enjoyed an ice cream social with the kids new friend Dani….
played some miniature golf….
and candy bar bingo, which Georgie won two out of the three games.
We were visited by an Eastern Box Turtle…
a bunch of Fowler’s Toads….
and an as yet unidentified butterfly (along with tons of other bugs and a hummingbird).
There’s nothing like a nice, drippy ice cream cone eaten on the beach.
It was a very fun trip but after five days of sleeping in a tent and walking around in sand, I was ready to get home to a comfy bed and the chance to have clean feet.
