We purchased a new camper a couple weeks ago and pulled it out to Big Hill Lake for our first camping trip Thursday evening. 104 degrees and camping for fun isn't really the greatest idea. Especially when the beach says to swim at your own risk. I took a kiddie pool and sprinkler to let Gage play in since we weren't going to be visiting the lake water (Blue Green Algae has been detected in the lake but not to where they have to shut it down so its swim at your own risk).
The pool wasn't as big as I remember. Maybe because the last time Gage used it he was a baby. Now he can barely sit in it at 5 years old.
It was just Gage and I Thursday night and by noon Friday we were bored.

The pool was a flop, we did a couple puzzles, read books, watched a movie, ate breakfast, and went for 2 walks. Starting the day off at 7 am was too early. We came home and ate lunch with Allen, swam in our clean Algae free pool and then Gage finished his last night at VBS.

When we returned to the camper we ate supper and watched our rented movies before calling it a night.

Home by 9 am Saturday morning. Quick camping trip but we now can say we have learned how to:
level trailer, hook water and electricity up, dump grey and black tanks and all the fun stuff in between. We are now ready to go camping and have a great list of what is needed and not needed.
