Bucket List: Camping

Everyone has a 'bucket list'. Things they would like to do in their lifetime. I've always had one - adding things faster than I can check them off the list. After what happened this summer, I've been focusing on checking things off my list. I may actually post my list...(I'll have to add that to my list!)

Canning was on the list. Check!

Camping was also on the list. Check!

This was a very last minute decision, and a huge thanks to my dad for picking up the camper we rented, hauling it to our camp site, and getting it all set up. (My preferred way to camp I think!)

We picked a perfect weekend - the weather was gorgeous. We all had a blast and the boys loved it. Their favorite part, of course, were the smores.

While on our way to Decorah, the boys asked if our camper was going to have a toy room. Ha!

Bike rides! Pretty soon these two will be ready for the loop de loop!

My bestie, Beth, and her beautiful family joined us for a picnic lunch at the campsite on Saturday.
I love you Beth!
P&M stretching with me after my run. Since we camped right along the Elvelopet route I couldn't resist running the route. The weather was amazing.
Is that your camper? Nope - just our bus truck
grandpa came and made us pancakes on Sunday morning - what a treat!

  1. I grew up camping and have some of my best childhood memories from our trips, mostly in Iowa. I grew up in Iowa City and my family is still there. I love seeing all the Iowa Hawkeye gear in your blog photos! Ross and I are headed home for the IA vs. MN game September 29th. GO HAWKS!!
