Camping at Sagehen

Even though I spent less than 24 hours at the campsite last weekend, we managed to pack quite a bit in. I think I mentioned that the boys actually went up the night before I got there, so they got a little more accomplished than I did!
Canoe time!

I prepared some food before I left home so could bring a nice dinner up with me. The little boys were happiest with hot dogs and beans!
The pasta for our dinner was actually in my gift bag from MaryJane Butters. She has a line of organic camp food and I have always wanted to try it. The bag stands by itself and you just add boiling water, fold the bag over, wait ten minutes, and it is ready to eat! This pasta was delicious. I will definitely be getting some more, for our next camping trip. I assumed it would be loaded with sodium, being a convenience food, but was pleased to see that it wasn't. Yum!


When did this kid get so big?

Camping is not camping, without Jiffy Pop.

Cam caught this cute little guy at our campsite.

Warming up by the fire in the morning.

Colossal marshmallows. Another must.

These two love being on the water.

One of the best things that happened on the whole trip was when Camden announced he was going to read poetry to us by the camp fire,  from his Shel Silversteen book. Doesn't get any better than that.

Joy, oh joy! It all looks wonderful (and I don't really enjoy camping that much, either!)!!

Love these photos! It looks so peaceful out there. Love how you took some tasty food for dinner too - sounded delicious. Hope Camden decides to repeat his poetry readings on future outings for you all too. Great family trip.
