2014 Season Wrap-up

We wrapped up our 2014 camping season with a trip to what is becoming one of our favorite locations.  As usual, we had a fabulous weekend just relaxing and enjoying being outdoors.

Nothing fancy, just beautiful fall camping with God showing off his glorious creation.

Wrapping up a fun year of camping - That's How We Roll!

Summer Finale

After our big road trip in July, we didn't get Glampy out much.  So, we were sure to close out summer with two weekends in a row!

Two weekends ago we kept it local and went to a fun little campground not too far from us.  We had a fun new addition to our campsite -- a hammock!  It was a big hit, and I think a campsite with suitable trees will be part of our campsite requirements from now on. :)

Even our guest enjoyed the hammock!

There were lots of fun things to do at this campground, including giant chess and checkers, swimming pool, and the annual pig roast!

It was a fun and relaxing weekend for all!

Video games are way more fun in a camper - lol!
And, this past weekend we ventured over to Amish county in Lancaster County, PA.  We were visiting family in the area, but we still managed to take advantage of the fun things the campground had to offer.

great site - but no trees for the hammock :(

It was hot! Gotta' hit the pool!

Our site was right on a little stream - which the kids loved because there were plenty of frogs to be caught.

JR gets all the nice sunrises as he is the sucker who has to get up with the dog in the morning :)

It rained a little while we were there, but we didn't care...we were in our camper!  We had a ferocious game of Monopoly and enjoyed a movie.  I am pretty sure I will never sleep in a tent again! - lol!
Don't let size keep you from your DD!
Relaxing and camping as a family was a nice way to end the summer before the craziness of our fall schedules begin.  Ending summer on a high note - That's how we roll!

On the Road Again: The Great Lakes Tour 2014

On the Road Again...

That was our theme song for the past 2.5 weeks as we took Glampy out on the road to tour the Great Lakes.

We left the day after school was out and didn't return home until after the 4th.  We traveled over 3300 miles and added 4 new states and Canada to our camping map.

We're so tiny!!
We got to see and swim in (or least dip our toes in) all five great lakes. We tried for a picture in each -- but I think we only managed one in which everyone was looking - ha!
Lake Ontario at Ft. Niagara St. Park
Lake Michigan at Petoskey State Park
Lake Huron at Cheboygan State Park
Lake Huron in Mackinaw City
Lake Superior at Little Girl's Point
Lake Erie at East Harbor State Park
Lake Erie at Marblehead Lighthouse
And we took in many other cool sights along the way including Niagara Falls, the Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and the gorgeous natural settings of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

We made it to the top!
Soo Locks 
Waterfalls on Black River

Hiawatha: Ironwood, MI

Super fun water park in Ohio
The best part was getting to see some friends and family that we hadn't seen in awhile.

We were blessed with pretty much perfect weather on our trip, and fell in love with our camper.

Good Morning, America!!

It was a great trip!  We can't wait to plan our next trip and get back out on the road again...because that's how we roll!
