Camping at Phohick Bay with Friends...

Once the snow melted and the ground was back to being thawed out (took all of 3 if that) we headed off for our first camping weekend of the year. A good friend of mine from growing up recently got a camper for her family and so we decided to tag along on their inaugural camping adventure. 

The weather was perfect - back to short sleeves and shorts - as we'd been accustomed to! It was also a trip down memory lane driving through our old neck of the woods to get there. 

As we had been packing I was thinking of how we'd need to bring toys for Harper to play with on the carpet outside the camper, you know, since the last time we had camped that's exactly what he did...of course that was in November when he wasn't walking yet, so yeah, this was a different experience. Haha! Needless to say it was a much more active camping trip chasing Harper around - but we loved every moment! 

Also keeping us on our toes was Adam who was so excited to finally be able to ride a bike around a campground! He rode that thing round and round the campground loop at least 50 times and we had fun walking behind pushing Harper in his bike or just keeping tabs on him from our walkie talkies - giving him a bit of leash - but not too much! :) 

We enjoyed an old fashioned dinner around the campfire with our friends. Cooking hot dogs over the fire followed up by smore's of course. 

In the morning, thanks to our early morning wake-up call from Harper, we were able to sneak out for a sunrise hike along the bay. It was so pretty and a perfect way to start the day. Pancakes were the reward. 

The rest of the weekend was all about running around the park, playing lacrosse, chasing Harper around, bike rides, and even some sparklers to top off a great first camping trip of 2017!
