Favorite things to do while camping-

So, Jon made me go camping- again, and I have to say, getting back to nature reminds me of how much I used to enjoy it! I used to spend every weekend on a different hiking or camping trip. I didn't mind being dirty and I didn't get allergies so much. Oh yeah- and I didn't have children to entertain! Even thought it's hard to find things for the kids to do, a couple days away from the TV and video games- not to mention the computer... isn't so bad for these spoiled kids! They got so creative- mostly entertaining themselves, so I thought I'd share their ideas with any of you who might be starved for entertainment for your own kids...


There's bungee chord brain squeezing... Fun House Mirrors- bumper style...
Oreos... need I say more?
Leave it to Gage for face-making 101...
Roasting marshmallows..."perfectly..."



And being behind the lens of a camera was plenty entertaining for me! We ended up having a lot of fun, even though I only got to stay for the day and had to come home to work in the morning. It's really quiet in this house tonight, and though I thought I'd enjoy it... it's kind of boring! I'm sure tomorrow night will be busy and crazy as usual! Labor Day- here I come!

Camping is the best. Why is it that the kids can entertain themselves for hours on end in the forest but not for 10 minutes at home???
