Memorial Day Camping Trip

Share it Please
We decided to go camping for Memorial Day weekend this year. We decided this long before the forecast for rain was out, but we thought we would go anyway. We were able to camp on some land that belongs to our friends dad. This land is used as a recreation place for company parties. It has a lake, paddle boats, putt putt, ball fields, and bathrooms. The best part, other than the bathrooms, was that we got to camp for free!!!! It did rain on and off until Saturday night, but that didn't stop the fun.

This is a picture of a friend of ours who didn't want to get out of his tent Saturday morning, but kept joining in on the conversation. My husband and another friend decided to pull up his tent stakes. It was alot funnier than the picture is, I promise. Here he is when he finally got out of the tent. With hair like that I would have stayed in there too.

My son found a love for fishing. He would even go to bed early just so he could get up early, and he did. He woke up at 5:30 on his own. The kids would fish whenever it wasn't raining and when it was raining they would go play putt putt since it was covered. Taylor caught 2 bass and was proud to hold them herself. Tanner caught 4 bass all about 1lb. except one that was about 3 1/2 lbs. He was so excited, but still won't hold one himself.

We also enjoyed the paddle boats. The kids enjoyed going out by themselves, with Dixie the dog of course. If anyone would ride out in the lake she would swim out and get in the back. She didn't want to be left out of anything.

We ended up coming back a day early because of all the rain and mud. It was a great trip and we can't wait to go back.
