Week 29 ~ Camping @ Meramac State Park

I had a ton of fun camping with my Shell Bell this weekend, she is the only girl I know who loves to tent camp as much as I do. Although, we did almost get struck by lighting, eaten by bats and swept away in a monsoon! I like to leave a little something behind for the next camper, it's usually a quarter on the picnic table or a deck of cards but this time we left the clothesline tied up.
Do you have any camping traditions?

Getting ready to unpack the goods

 We picked a great campsite. Few campers, close to the bathrooms, showers & swimming and pretty quiet (except for that screaming baby Friday night! Ugh!)

Our weekend home

Just one of our little friends that visited us

Dinner time: BBQ pork steaks and grilled corn on the cob...MMM...

OH.MY.GOODNESS. Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler -

2 cans of pie filling, 1 box white cake mix, 1/2 stick butter
1. Line dutch oven & lid with foil (makes for an easy cleanup!) 2. Dump pie filling & cake mix in dutch oven, stir 3. Slice butter over the top 4. Place dutch oven over fire with lid upside down 5. Place hot coals on top of lid 6. Cook for 1/2 hour & ENJOY!

Marsh mellow time!!

I could watch a campfire for hours

These pictures were taken with my trusty old Olympus, not the best quality but still great memories!
