Memorial Day camping

As you all know, last week we were going camping for the Memorial Day weekend. We went for a couple days, so it was nice to get away. We had a blast too! So much so that I ended up taking over 400 pictures. Geez! Yes, I took my Canon too. I couldn't pass up the opportunity of getting some really good photos.

Every time we go camping, we love to go hiking. This trip was no different....okay, so maybe it was a little. It was different in the fact of how many miles we hiked this trip. Normally we hike around 4-5 miles. This time?? Are you ready?? We hikes over 10 miles!!! Can you believe that? It was actually split up between two days. We had originally planned on just doing a 5.5 mile hike but because I felt like I ate crappy the day before we had to come home, I said I wanted to do another hike before heading home. It was so much fun too!! I wish I could share all my pics with you but I just choose a handful or two to share.

Here's my hubby and daughter playing on a log by our campsite.

She-Ra.....oh, I mean my noodle again!


He-Man! Nope, my hubby. Okay, so he's MY He-man!
One of the many flowers I captured.

My baby while on our hike. We stopped to take a break cause this spot was gorgeous and secluded.......and swarming with mosquitoes too!! I had to hurry and get out of there cause they love me!

A little butterfly. He actually let me hold him cause he couldn't fly. I saved him from the road. Poor thing.

My noodle at the end of our second hike and just before we headed back home.

We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go again in a month.
Next up.......Fabulous Las Vegas......in 2 weeks!!!! WOO HOO!!

The thought of camping always scares me. I blame it on the movies. They always have some random snake or bear attacking campers. Those images are stuck in my head forever.

Glad to see you guys had fun. No bears or snakes, I see.

What a fun time, Kimmy! My husband's family makes it an annual tradition to go camping every Memorial Day. Sadly, this year was a no go.

You're also going to Vegas in two weeks?? Wow! I have to say that Vegas is more my type of outing. :)

Loved your pics.
