We had a great time on our camping trip this week-end! We left at 4:00 on Thursday and got home at 4:00 on Sunday. The weather was beautiful! Sunny and 90 degrees Saturday and Sunday. The great thing about camping at a State Park (in Arkansas anyway) is all of the fun things it has to offer for only $17.50 a night. We had a large campsite pretty close to the lake which had a lot of places you could fish easily without having to go down a steep bank and it had a great beach with a pavilion, a bath house, and tables up in the shade. The roads were paved so the children could ride their bikes and it had a great playground. The park also offered a ton of free activities and a nature center with fish, turtles, and snakes. During nap time for the little ones I took the three older children to some of the activities. They made a nature bookmark, pine cone bird feeder, sun catcher, and a litter bug. We all went to the movie Friday night in the Amphitheatre. We got to see the Lorax on an old time reel projector. Saturday we had some friends come out to the campsite and we roasted marshmallows and made Sm ores. We are looking forward to our next trip in 3 weeks.
