scenes from a campground
I did the unthinkable Tuesday, taking Mason camping...without his dad or sister along for help. (Grandma and Auntie were along, though.) Mas was amazing. He was truly a "Happy Camper", the entire time. Through 4 1/2 hours of driving, 45 degrees all the way to 85 degrees, he was happy and cooperative; loving the scenery and the fishing and the late night bedtimes. He clamped his mouth shut when offered a s'more, however. Not sure what happened there, as he loved them last year. I pulled our camper with our pickup, which was a new thing for me, as well as navigating road construction. I was proud of us! (Of course, it helps to have a sister along who is a Master Camper, and having grandma along is a definite plus on any trip involving Mas.) My sister caught a 19 1/2" walleye, and my mom caught a 16" walleye. We caught numerous brown trout, too. It was definitely the best shore fishing we've ever had while camping there. It was a great time! Here are a few of the cuter pics of our trip.
