The mountains

>> Monday, June 13, 2011

We had a great night up in the mountains this weekend.  With such a late start to summer here we haven't had a chance to get up there and prep.  Tables need to be put out and hammocks hung.  As always I am making lists of things for the kids to do in their downtime.  Running around the forest, playing in the fort, and swimming are the favorites but in the evenings the kids usually need a playtime break and a chance to just relax.  I know you are thinking that a good book and some knitting would be just the ticket but since my kids are only 4 and 6 we went with t-shirts and puffy paint.

Here's a little tip from me.....great project for a six year old....messy with a four year old....

Of course their was too much food.  We did a shrimp boil with corn on the cob.

Jack says camping is his favorite thing to do.  I'll let you in on a little secret.....when my son says camping is his favorite he really means s'mores.  He would have them morning, noon, and night if I let him....but then I guess who wouldn't?

After all the stickiness was washed clean and the kids were sleeping a sugar induced coma I got to have a little grown up time with my husband by the campfire...

No knitting this weekend but I am almost done with my Seeds hat.  How was your weekend?

I love puffy paint! That sounds like a fabulous weekend. Our weekend at the cottage was less about crafts and more about yardwork. I look forward to seeing the hat!

Looks like you all had a blast! Mmmm, I can't wait for my first smores of the year... :)

Hammocks!!! Now that's my idea of camping :) It all looks wonderfully fun. Believe it or not at the beach sometimes we grownup make smores over the grill.

Your trip sounds wonderful! tables, hammocks and smores would be all i would need too. I'm not a sofa girl - i even enjoy reading books at a table. Grown up time by the campfire sounds wonderful - amazing what getting just a bit away from your everyday norm does for a relationship.
