A New Tradition

This past weekend we met up with our dear friends from Outnumbered to finally make the much discussed camping adventure a reality.  We arrived at Pine Acres early evening on Friday.  Our campsite was amazing!  We were the only two families in this secluded spot. It was perfect!
After breakfast we agreed that there was much swimming that needed to be done.  We started with a walk to the lake followed by a dip in the pool.
After all that swimming and digging and playing, we headed back to camp to get changed and have some quiet time.  
It was then decided that some ice cream was in order. 
After all, life is short and you should always eat dessert first!
Then it was back to the campsite to get ready for dinner.  Reading and caterpillar finding and general merriment were on the agenda too.    
After dinner there was marshmallow roasting and s'more making followed by a camp wide dance.  
And sadly, our final day arrived.  We all agreed that the end came way too quickly.  Grace reminded us that we never did make it to play mini-golf on the course there, and of course everyone really wanted another trip to the pool/sprinkler park.  While we packed up the kids played and chatted and plans for next year's camping trip were discussed.  It was hard to say good-bye to our friends.  While we don't see Heather and Al and the kids nearly enough, each time we are together it is as if no time has passed!  We are looking forward to next year's Pine Acres adventure already.  Though we surely hope to play a few times before then, of course! 


  1. those types of friends are the best, the ones you wish you could see more often and when you do see each other it still feels like no time passed since the last time. thanks for sharing your precious memories!
