Camping at Hanging Rock

We got home Wednesday from the beach and had two days to rest at home and then we were off on another adventure.  We went camping at Hanging Rock on Friday night with GrandBob and Uncle Ed.  We got up there around 5pm and it was a perfect evening.  The weather was gorgeous and we really liked our campsites.  We hiked just a short way to a little stream where the kids had fun feeling the cold water.  The men folk cooked us some hotdogs for dinner.  We started off on another hike to see the lake but we met Uncle Ed coming back and he said it was a good bit farther and not as easy.  With Lindy on my back we turned around!  We finished the night with s’mores and spooky stores – by Lindy, Will, and GrandBob – by the campfire.  The kids were so excited to sleep in our new tent.   I was excited to sleep in it too.  Too bad Drew and I didn’t sleep too well!

Lindy woke up bright and early Saturday morning at 6:18am and said, “It’s time to wake up!”  I told her it wasn’t and she laid quietly for awhile before Will sat up around 6:40am.  No sleeping while camping.  We had a yummy breakfast of pancakes and bacon, also done by the men folk.  We got everything packed up and we headed to do another short hike to the Hidden Falls and the Window Falls. 

After we were done hiking we showed Bob and Ed around Danbury a little.  That didn’t take long!  We took them to Moratock Park and then Priddy’s General Store.  We ate lunch in Danbury and headed home.  On the way we stopped at Mabe’s Berry Farm and picked up some freshly picked strawberries! 

We had a great time camping.  The kids absolutely love it.  I’ve had two good experiences and if they are always good then I’ll keep going! 

Sunday we had church and I dragged Lindy shopping with me.  She didn’t want to go but I made her come.  We got free treats from Starbucks (something they said had no coffee in it so she got one!) and she was happy.  I let her play my phone and she was all set.  We ended up at 3 stores and ended up having a nice girls’ afternoon!
