I went camping out at home with some good friends this past weekend. We’ve all lost track of how long we’ve been camping together, but we think it’s been since 2005 or so. At this point, they are my camping family… sometimes there is a new addition or two, but our core group remains the same. This time, there were 13 of us (including two little guys under two years old).
I could go on and on about how much these camping trips mean to me, but instead, I’ll just try to give a sense of the weekend through photos and snippets.
