The wonders of car camping.

 I never knew something could be so easy & fun.  You can pack most whatever want/ need and DRIVE to your campsite.  No walking (although I do love the hiking aspect of backpacking), but with little kids, this is awesome.  We had a blast with the Darnell's and it was a simple weekend full of a lot of nothing- talking, cooking, drinking coffee, more cooking, walking to the bathhouse, more eating, bathhouse again, fires, etc.  Such a therapeutic weekend to be outside with family.  I recommend it to anyone.  Oh- and we went to the North Mills River campground which is 30 minutes from our house!  Can't beat that!
Here's our set up (minus the Darnell's tent to the left of our's).
Exploring the campground in our pajamas.
We even celebrate a birthday!
And drove away from the campsite (in said cars) to go GEM MINING.  Now THAT is a cultural experience- what am I going to do with all of these "gems"?
And she lost ANOTHER tooth....the Tooth Fairy does indeed deliver to campsites.  FYI.
Got to be with these lovely people....our girls were awesome outside even in the cold!
And have moments like this.........
