Last month we went camping at Grindstone Campground in VA. Once we got off the major highways, the scenery was BEAUTIFUL! Mountains, rolling hills, picture perfect rivers and streams, it was lovely! If I wasn't the one driving, I would have taken lots of pics on the way up. I found lots of places where I was saying to myself "I could live here". Makes me even more determined to move to Asheville some day...Or Washington State!
The camping group was a pretty good size, but due to threats of rain, many cancelled :( We still had fun anyways, and I even remembered to take a few pictures. None of them are great, but hey, at least I remembered to use it a few times, even though I lost my camera 20 times every day.
Our campsite Sunday Morning. The rain stopped and the fog rolled in
Day 1 and 2 Setting up Tents and nature art
Day 2 The watering Hole and Flowers It was a really nice day when the sun was out, but every time the clouds covered the sun, brrrrr it got really cold!
Day 2 or 3 Cute Kai
Day 2 Captain Morgans Shawn
Day 3 Dads playing with Tonka Trucks and Hot Wheels
We brought the kids' DS' and told them that they could only play when it rained...they were SO happy every time it started pouring rain!
Tent City! We put the screen house over our tent to ensure extra dryness :)
Dirty Smores face
Hello Kitty and braided pig tails
One of the kids took this pic of KFC
The right way to eat a Smores
The kids played with this bug for the longest time then decided to take a picture of it to remember it forever
Despite the rain, we had a great time. Can't wait till our next camping trip!
