Wrapping up our summer!

Summer is dwindling down. The fair is over and kids are back in school.
Cool air has set in....perfect time of year to go camping.

That is exactly what we did this weekend. We borrowed my Mother and Father-law's camper and hit the road to Mohican (or as Grace calls it, Mo-hig-in).

There was a detour on the way there and let's just say that we took the scenic route. I felt
like I was in the middle of a Lucille Ball movie you may have seen! LOL :-)
We finally made it!
The kids patiently waited while we unloaded everything and got things set up.
Then we walked over to the playground so they get out some of their pent up energy.


They slid....

They ran...

They climbed....


Drove...
and swang...
It was then time for the main event. The Campfire!!!

Grace enjoyed helping Daddy roast hot dogs
The next morning we all took what we thought would be a short 1 mile hike. Well, let's just say that half of that 1 mile was up a really steep hill and mommy ended up carrying a 30 lb backpack Gauge for 1/2 of it.
The kids enjoyed finding walking sticks, acorns, pine cones, and buckeyes along the way.
The long hike, combined with staying out late so we could see the 1st half of the OSU game, made for some tired puppies. The kids loved being able to sleep with each other in the camper.

The cutest thing of the entire trip was Grace hauling Gauge all over the campground on the back of her tricycle. She had a great time being the big sister and escorting her little brother around. At one point she even said "Comfortable back their Gauge?"
