Unschoolers Rock The Campground 3

Thursday 7/14/2011 - We arrived at 9pm and set up the tent by the car headlights.  First time camping as a family ever!  (As kids, Jim used to camp in a pop up and I had a couple experiences, some in tents and some in pop ups or cabins.  Neither of us camped as adults.)  Our family camping experience was great and we will definately invest in an air mattress so that we sleep better - and get a cook stove too!  A huge thank you to Erika Davis Pitre for lending us her extra cookstove and to Jules for helping us find our site in the pitch darkness!

Relax and finish that quesadilla first.


Daddy and Li went out in the kayak.  Now Makana and I will go.

Saturday 7/18/2011 - York Zoo is a three hour ride for us.  There are two zoos about an hour away from the campground.  Murph, who lives in MA by the Cape, suggested we go to William Rogers Zoo in Providence, RI as he thought it was a nicer zoo than Franklin Zoo.  We took his advice and enjoyed it!  Unfortunately, we missed getting back for the 4pm Nerf War, but there were yet more battles to join in on throughout the early evening and the next day too!

Jim and I always notice this bug whenever we have passed by.  It is still there!  Had to photo of it as we refer to it sometimes...."Remember that giant bug...?"

I just LOVE this picture!!!
