July 4th Camping Trip

I really thought this would work for some reason?


We packed up and headed to the Shenandoah Valley for some soul rejuvenating time with nature. Not always being quite the enthusiastic camper, I had forgotten just what a bonding experience camping can be. When the Heimer's rolled in to Gooney Creek Campground in the Benz with a ton of random gear for a 2 night stay the locals and neighboring campers thought we would never last, but boy were they wrong! We even found a hubcap on the side of the river bank and cooked in it! Now, we are certainly not the Harris' with homemade spears and a fresh catch for dinner, but we did survive a 2 mile hike up the river, ticks and chiggers, and a forgotten air matress (yeah, that was fun)! Mostly, we made memories that the boys will not soon forget.

Ohhhh I am so jealous, that looks so amazingly beautiful, ohh how I miss camping, and fresh water, and dew, and fog, and towering trees with shade, and camp fires, island life is nice but it certainly doesnt have those finer things in life! I miss you guys more than you could ever imagine!
