Camping season is here again

It's always so great when camping season starts again. Cold winter days are replaced with warm days and cool evenings - and the joys of camping with friends, enjoying the outdoors. Evenings are spent around the campfire sharing stories, laughing, and catching up with each other away from the business of everyday life.
We even toast a marshmallow or two. It's almost more fun to cook them than to eat them. My DH makes them just right! Yummy.

Days are spent taking hikes by the lake, exploring trails, and enjoying the wildflowers.

Our last morning, packing up our RV, and enjoying a picnic by the lake with our friends before saying goodbye till next time.
How fortunate we are to have this beautiful campground so close by. And such wonderful friends to camp with! Truly a blessing in our lives.

Now that's the life. Great pictures. Great place to be. This may not show up on your blog, Blogger must be having a problem. I have several comments, including yours, that are not showing up on the blog. Hopefully they will correct it today.
Have a great week.

Hi Ruthie! How nice to hear from you! Oh, what a fun time you two must have! Looks like a beautiful place! I hope you're doing well - you look great! and I always appreciate it when you pop in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

I wanna be you!

We just returned from a lengthy vacation out west, we went to the Grand Canyon and several other National Parks. The hubs and I had a running debate about the pro's and con's of owning an RV.

We are still many years away from retirement but we may come to a happy medium before then!

Blessing and have lots of fun this summer!

Good for you! Camping sounds like fun especially with good friends. It is 102 degrees here today and not good for camping.

Glad you enjoyed the cool weather.

Hi Ruthie,
Looks like you had a nice time camping...and were able to enjoy it with good friends! We haven't taken our 5th wheel out for several months. Maybe we can get out sometime this summer. Nice to have a post from you! Take care. :)

Enjoy the camping season! I saw marshmallows for sale in an ad and it made me want to roast some, now seeing the pictures here makes it sound even more yummy!
