Camping at Petite Jean

The kids were super excited to get to go camping with Poppy and Grammy a couple weekends back.   We have been to Petite Jean several times, here's one of our recent trips.  The big boys went up on Friday and helped get the campsite setup then Adam and I brought Emerson and Ava Jane on Saturday after his baseball game. We set up the tent and chilled out for a bit then headed off to the trail.

There's a beautiful waterfall that we have hiked to, but this time we took another trail and enjoyed its more moderate intensity down and around to the rocky stream.

Grammy and Poppy had some walking sticks and the kids enjoyed playing with them so we stopped by one of the park stores and were able to pick up some for the kids and they were a huge hit as you can imagine, they were even turned into guitars at one point on the hike.

Being out in nature was wonderful, the fresh air, the sights and sounds of the birds, the need for lanterns and flashlights and the slower pace was a welcomed reprieve for the weekend.

The boys enjoyed the fire side time, especially Lawson.

And we all enjoyed hamburgers and brats, beans and of course some smores.

Our time with the Heads was fun, the first weekend out with their new camper was a complete success.  We look forward to making more memories with them in the future.
