Camping actually begins with a food-planning lunch the week before we leave, and the making (and testing) of a LARGE amount of trail mix.
This was our first time to camp at Lake Skiatook. It's a beautiful lake, only about 1-1/2 hours from our house with a beautiful drive along Highway 33. If you ever go, check out campsite #53 at Twin Pointe. It's a great corner site with plenty of tent room....and it will never be the same :)
All the grands! Many hours of fun spent at the park. Uncle Kody and Uncle Jacob took them to play many times!
Watching for mermaids. Lily was convinced they were in the lake.
Throwing rocks at the mermaids? Oh, and notice the shoes. Perfect for a princess on a campout!
Our kids love games. A few games of cards and dominoes.....until it was time to eat again!
Grandpa showing off his campfire making skills.
Drinking coffee (and hot chocolate and apple cider) around the fire. It was pretty cool on Saturday morning.
Gotta have that flavored creamer with our coffee....even on a campout!
One of our camping favorites....biscuits on a stick.
Camping as a family is a great time of focus. No outside interruptions, plenty of campfire talks when the kids are asleep, lots of playing time, great food, reading and napping.
Does your family camp?
