Over the Weekend: Camping

Whenever I tell people that I'm going camping they seem surprised. I guess I don't really give off the outdoors vibe??

I might even venture to call my version of camping GLAMPING. Mostly because it does include an air mattress, sheet set, pillow and multiple sleeping bags. 

We ventured to a local nature preserve for the weekend to camp. Highlights of the weekend included hiking with gorgeous views, a successful Pinterest campfire hobo meal and a chance to use M's new camping hammock. The not-so-great parts of the weekend included record cold temps (I'm talking 25 degrees Saturday night) and a forgotten spatula that thwarted our attempt for pancakes over the fire. I apologize if you've already seen these pictures on will see some of the same here today...

M testing out his new camping hammock. I was nervous to get in. 

Saturday morning. Freezing my lily-white butt off. 

I was trying to show how hilly our trails were even though we don't live in a normally hilly area. This was my best attempt. 

Hiking views of some of many coves.

Trees for days! 

One of the other coves we encountered while hiking. 

M wanted to try to fish a little while we were there. It was very cold to he opted to dress like a fancy burglar. 

Not sure what I was saying...or singing at this moment. 

This was pretty much one of the few times we could keep the tent open. It was too chilly.

M lowered the hammock a little and I tried it out. I was nervous about both the mount and dismount but I didn't fall or flip. Hooray! 

Linking up! 


  1. I'm sorry it was so cold but it looks fun otherwise!

  2. Good review. I haven't tried hammock camping but it may be something I should look into in the warmer weather. I will head to Hammock Bliss now to see what else they have to offer.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
