This past weekend was our annual fall camping trip with the Cub Scouts. It is an amazing weekend of fun adventures with friends. It is a ton of work, but definitely worth it. It takes some time to recover though. Here are the boys bringing our gear into camp.


They helped me set up the tent this year. Then they had to try it out, of course.


Friday night we celebrated Dane’s birthday with a birthday skit where he popped out of a giant present and everyone sang Happy Birthday to him. He was so excited for this and then he stayed in the box for the rest of the night. He loved it.

The next morning was his actual birthday. Cupcakes were perfect for breakfast number 1.


The boys love being with so many friends in the woods.



They also love Gaga Ball.  I know I have mentioned this before.


Next was archery.


And a hike for our younger guys while the older ones went fishing.


We decided to do a little geocaching while we were hiking. Have you tried this? It is a treasure hunting game that uses GPS to help you locate the treasure. You can download this app (or many others) to start. The boys and I love geocaching and always do it when we travel. On this particular hike, I chose the treasure cache that was closest to us. Guess where we found it?  In the Girl Scout camp next door!


After a deep fried turkey dinner (thanksgiving style), it was time for a bonfire and a movie in the woods.  We always watch “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” before the movie.


On Sunday the boys are free to play in the woods with their friends. They love this so much.




It was a great weekend.  Here we are food shopping for the trip at BJs last week.


So, I am wondering, have you ever gone geocaching?

Does your family go camping?
