Last weekend we went camping with Nana and Pa. It was perfect weather! Warm enough during the days that jeans and a sweatshirt were adequate, then cool enough at night that you really wanted to sit around a campfire to keep warm. We had a great time and were able to do so many different things.

On our first night, we carved pumpkins. They added a nice touch of fall to our campsite.

We went fishing, too. The first night we went to The Children's Pond. I think it might be called that because it seems as though there were no fish in it more than 4 inches long. The fish were small but they kept biting, so the kids had a good time catching them.

On our last day, we went to the lake to try some fishing. We were a bit skeptical to what we would be able to catch there, especially when Pa's first catch was this:
Here it is a bit closer, just in case you couldn't see it.

However, as time went on, the fish began to get bigger and bigger. This one was definitely the catch of the day!
Where we fished was rather rocky, so the kids enjoyed climbing and jumping all around on the rocks.
Miss Abby even made her way out on to her own little island.

She keeps me on my toes.

We were able to enjoy some beautiful scenery, too. The leaves were definitely far from 'peak,' however, they were still beautiful.

In the evenings, we enjoyed sitting around the campfire: making s'mores, gazing up at the stars, and singing songs. The kids can now sing harmony to the song 'Ring of Fire.' That's what happens when your Pa can do a pretty mean Johnny Cash impression.
We had such a great time! I wish we could go again soon, but that will probably have to be it for the year.
