101 in 1001: Go Camping

So I did actually go camping, but it was about a month ago. Nevertheless, I did not get around to blogging about it, so as it is part of the 101 in 1001 I set out to do, since it was number 7 on my list, I am blogging about it.

Every year when I was little, my mom’s side of the family used to get together and go camping. As we got older, it got harder to coordinate everyone’s schedules in the summer, so it kind of fell by the wayside. My aunt and I were talking, for the past couple of summers, about getting it together again. Well, this summer, we finally were able to get something together.

Over Labor Day weekend, we went to Kickapoo State Park in Illinois. It was a lot of fun, but it was also pretty exhausting for me being pregnant and all. And it was pretty hot that weekend that we were there. It sort of threatened rain all weekend and would rain for little bits of time sporadically and then be done. Which is great because it could have rained a lot more, but it feels like it might have cooled off a bit more if it had rained for longer.

Dominic had such a blast though, so I’m glad we went. He had so much fun and it was great to see him playing with the other kids. It was his first time camping and hopefully it’s not his last. I also have to thank my mom because she was a big help with Dominic, since Nick couldn’t go with us.

Because of being pretty much away from technology, I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I did however get a few of Dominic enjoying his first s’more. They aren’t great quality because it was dark and he was sitting on the back of the SUV, but I wanted to capture that moment since he had never a s’more before.
