Falls Creek Camp Trip

Last week we loaded everything up and drove up to the mountains. We found a nice spot tucked back in the trees and set up camp. We have been waiting all winter to be able to do this. This trip is number two and I think our summer is calling for many more trips.

The people that were here before us set up a really nice fire pit which made the girls really excited about the campfire...or maybe it was the marshmallows. I forget. We got everything put up while the girls played with odds and ends that they found around camp. Sticks, rocks, you name it.

Sitting around the camp and listening to the sounds of nature is by far one of my favorite things. This camp site is surrounded by a few more trees than the last one we were at. They had faces in the trunks and branches which has proved great conversation between the girls and I. Some of them look as if they're laughing at each other.

The creek beside the camp was low enough this time so the girls could play in it a bit. It was so cold still that it made their feet numb. There were butterflies everywhere! Big yellow and orange ones. They fluttered all around the waters edge and created this magical feeling. The girls even managed to catch a few of them. I do believe that was the highlight of this trip.

I'm looking forward to this summer, even though we're in the thick of it already. I am tickled that the girls enjoy camping and nature as much as I did when I was little. Heck, I still love it. I like being able to share such a love for something with them. It makes making memories even more special. They see how simple it is and can appreciate just being together as a family without the added distractions.
