A few thoughts and pics from the kids recent camping trip:

Cassidy - I like going camping and cooking marshmallows.

Christina - I touched a snake at the Nature Center and accomplished breaking my fear of snakes. We put layers of clothing on because it was cold and sat around the campfire and drank hot chocolate.

Ben - I enjoyed hiking with everyone and enjoying the views of the pond. I cooked shish kabobs on the grill and they were terrific.

T - I like seeing the squirrels while we were hiking. We went to see the full moon. I roasted marshmallows and burnt my stick. I like my marshmallows well toasted.

Tony - I cut the logs with the saw. I wore gloves so I wouldn’t get cut.
