Back in the fall we discovered our new favorite family activity.
It gets us outside.
The boys get to roam freely.
And the activity usually ends with a campfire and smores.
Music to my ears!
A few years back Kent treated me to a Mother’s Day adventure at Cedar Hill Park. It was love at first sight. The park is packed full of beautiful tall trees and more elevation than we typically see in Texas. As we were approaching the park my oldest asked if we were in Colorado. Nope not quite Colorado mountains buddy but he was onto something as the terrain in the area is different than what we’re used to seeing.
Side Note: I vlogged + blogged our 1st trip to the park if you would like to take a peek you can see it here.
We had such a great time hiking and exploring the area during our adventure that we thought it might be fun to come back and rent a campsite for the day.
Fast forward several months…….
Most weekends when the weather is nice that’s exactly where you’ll find us, sitting at campsite cuddled around a camp fire enjoying the day!
We hope to camp out over night in the future but for now we really love the ease of picking up a few sandwiches on our way, throwing some fold up chairs in the car and hitting the road. We keep it easy and low key!
The boys play (they love getting some bubble time in and running their cars through the dirt), we relax, listen to music and make it home in time for baths and bedtime.
It’s kind of the perfect activity for the season of life we’re in.
The next time you find yourself with an open day and beautiful weather you may want to scout out a state park close by and enjoy a day under the trees! The pressure of not needing to pack enough stuff to stay overnight really takes the stress out of it all and you just might be surprised at how much you enjoy yourself!
Here are some photos I took of the boys during one of our recent campsite visits.
I vlogged this trip as well! If you enjoy our vlogs or want to see more of what we do when we’re at the campsite take a gender. It’s a cute one!
