One of my favorite traditions is our fall (and spring) campouts at my in-laws' farm. They have a perfect spot down in a valley by the creek to set up camp.
Since my niece and her friends had all day cheerleading practice we wouldn't all get to the farm in time to have everything set up before dark. My husband and I decided to go out Saturday to prepare the camp site. Yes, we used the riding lawn mower and wagon to carry all the gear down - several trips. Poor old Zommie is starting to slow down, so we took pity on her and didn't make her to trek up and down that hill - we settled her in the wagon for each trip up and down the hill. For the record, I walked up and down each trip :)
My husband doesn't believe it sleeping in tents. The tent do put up is just used as a changing room. We pile up the blankets and sleep by the fire.
Although we did this campout when I was in my blogging slump it didn't feel right leaving it out completely. Thank you for letting me share "old news."
