Happy fourth of July to everyone in the U.S.A.
My family escaped to our property up in the mountains for the weekend. Someday I hope to say we escaped to our 'cabin' up in the mountains but until that day comes it is just a piece of land an hour out of town with a lake close by.
Some friends came up to join us in a few nights of camping. We did small hikes through the forest and around the lake, played games, ate, laughed, roasted marshmallows, told stories and just enjoyed getting away.
Each time we arrive and set up the kids look to make sure our face in the tree hasn't disappeared.
Now it's always fun for the kids if they get to 'help' make goodies to bring along. I use the word help loosely because anyone who has done anything with a three year old and a five year old knows that they are anything but helpful :) But in order to put on the good mommy hat I included them. First sprinkles,
Then chocolate and pretzels....
a little dipping and voila. Treats for all to share up in the woods.
