been camping





Over the weekend, we went on our annual camping trip.



2008
2009
2010
2011











For the fourth year running, we stayed at Ft. Ebey State Park on Whidbey Island. I'm like that. If I find something on a menu I really love and it's available to me again, I'm hard pressed to choose something else.



I didn't camp as a kid and I don't think it's a prerequisite for a happy start to life, but I do enjoy the time in nature and the uninterrupted time with family. And I like that the boys are learning how to pitch a tent, build a fire, and split kindling.

More soon.

So lovely, Lecia.
I long for the sea.
Are you camping close enough to be lulled to sleep by the waves?

I have fond memories of camping with my family when I was a little girl.

It looks like you and your family are having a great time building your memories.

How fun! We would really like to start camping...maybe next year. (for sure not this year in the midst of a heat wave/drought!)

Wow! That looks fun. The best part in camping for me is cooking! I love it. Anyways, I love your camping site. Thanks for sharing the photos.

I grew up camping every summer for an entire month with my family. They are some of the best memories of my childhood. The wilderness and time to run around in nature. Can't wait to be there soon so we can enjoy the beautiful PNW landscape.
