This past weekend, we made an impromptu decision to pack up the camper and head out for one last trip of the season. We didn’t travel far, but it was just the escape we needed. Getting back to our camping routine was good for our souls, if even just for a couple days.
This is the latest in the season we’ve camped as a family, and my fall-obsessed self was loving every second of it. Leaves covered our entire campsite and the bonfires at night were not only good for ambiance, they were also necessary to keep warm.
Luke built the kids a giant leaf pile and they had so much fun jumping in it, getting completely covered, and throwing leaves at each other (or if we’re being honest, it was pretty much just Huck throwing leaves at Marleigh!). The weather was crisp at night but perfectly warm during the days. We did all the fall things as well as our usual camping favorites: played on the playground, went for walks, took a wagon ride through the campground, carved pumpkins, and made baked caramel apples.
What a wonderful way to wrap up another amazing camping season. We’re holding onto these sweet memories and counting down the days until we hit the open road again!
