Roughing It

This past weekend we went camping at Natchez Trace State Park. We had such a good time visiting with family and friends. I guess I can't really say that we roughed it, considering we stayed in a very nice RV and ate well (my mom made all kinds of good food like roast, potatoes, carrots, mac-n-cheese and hashbrown casserole).



We fished a lot. Me and Ella must have had the magic touch because we caught about 25 fish (small brim). Ken on the other hand only caught about 7. Some friends we were with also caught 2 catfish. They were nice enough to let Ella reel in one of the catfish. She really wanted to catch one because she likes the whiskers (not so much in real life, she was scared to death of it).








Ella got to ride a horse. She loves riding horses and climbed right up like a pro.


The ride even included a cowgirl hat.


We played badminton...

Roasted hot dogs and made smores...




Watched the sunset...


Played some music...


Flew a kite...



Relaxed...


And fished some more...


We had such a fun weekend. We definitely need to rough it more often.

I love the pictures, Anna and we had a great weekend of "roughing it", too! (Just my kind of roughing it). Austin had a ball with Ella and it looks like you and she have been bit by the "fishing bug"!
The shirts turned out so cute. What a treat for all the kids in the class to have you as one of their room mothers.
