Dear Matt, camping with you at Gibbon's Creek was AMAZING, HILARIOUS, and FUN! I can not imagine a better way to spend my weekend! I loved showing off my camping skills to you, and now I am officially prepared for Survivor... except for the fact that they don't serve hotdogs and smores on the deserted island.... this may be an issue ;) Anyways, I can't wait for our next camping trip.... next stop is somewhere in Austin!! Dear Brooke, thanks for the text today! I love hearing what you and Mitch are up to. Sounds like y'all are eating some amazing food and had a great hike on Cinque Trail. I am so excited to see the pictures when y'all get home. P.S We are even on the same wavelength when you are half way across the world... we were both hiking and spending time outdoors yesterday! Dear Mommy, I am glad your surprise visit to North Caroline was a success! I wish I could of gone with you... make sure and tell everyone I say Hi! P.S Bring Emerson to me ;)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Question of the Day: What do you like to put on your hot dogs, if you even like them?
|Matt had very little faith in me when I said that I could put up the tent by myself.... Don't worry I proved him wrong!|
|We used sticks to cook our Hot Dogs. It worked really well. I tried not to think about how many bugs and animals pooped on that stick hah. In the corner is Matt's chili can.... we just heated it up with the fire!|
|I love him... almost as much as I love smores ;)|
|I made the original smores with hershey's milk chocolate and my off brand graham crackers, but then I started to experiment. I used Ghirardelli Milk & Peanut Butter squares that my dad gave me for Valentine's Day, and they turned out heavenly!! I will never eat a smore again without Peanut Butter in it!|
|Sitting by the fire!|
|Admiring the fire that Matt started! He did a good job :)|
|I love hot dogs!|
|We had a great spot, and it was amazing looking up and seeing all the stars at night!|
|It was so peaceful out there, except for some wild hogs, raccoons, coyotes and other loud animals..... But, our first camping trip was definitely a success!! :)|
