Fall is in the air and it makes me so happy! I have said before how much I love fall but here I go again. I love the cool crisp air, the colors on the trees, and the beauty of the leaves drifting down to the ground. Fall is not the time to stay indoors so the hubby and I decided to go camping at Osage Hills State Park.
We went camping on the perfect weekend. After work on Friday, we rushed around to get out of here because we were afraid we would get caught in a thunderstorm. We didn’t travel far so we beat the storm and got the camper set up and enjoyed some time sitting outside listening to the thunder before it rained. It rained through the night but that just made for some great sleeping weather.
Saturday morning was cloudy and cool, just perfect for a camp fire, reading, and relaxing. In the afternoon we went for a walk then played some games including a couple of giant dice games. (Yes, you read that right, I will post more about the giant dice games later.) Saturday night, we had a wonderful dinner cooked over the campfire and for some reason I always eat more than I should. Food just tastes better when cooked over a campfire. We played more games around the campfire then called it a night.
Sleeping in late is so easy in a camper with the windows open and a cool breeze so that is just what we did on Sunday morning. We took our time enjoying breakfast and talking. We were delaying leaving and heading back to reality, but someone had to do laundry before we had to return to work.
This was the most relaxing weekend I have had in a long time. We are already planning our next camping trip and this time we are looking forward to enjoying the changing colors of the leaves.
When was the last time you had a relaxing weekend and what did you do?
