(I'm not doing a good job of keeping up on my blogging right now, between school obligations, a cranky teething baby and family visiting I'm struggling but I hope to get caught up soon and get back at it!)

We went on our final planned camping trip for the winter at Rodman State Park. 

High lights: 
discovering Ravine Garden's State Park,
 my first time cooking shepherd's pie over the fire,
 letting the three older boys shoot soda cans with a bb gun,
 the stars, 
the quiet,
being able to collect fallen limbs and pine cones for firewood, 
the cardinals that were flirting with one another in the trees behind our campsite,
finding that a ball tied to a string and hung from a tree could entertain a fussy baby for at least an hour,
the bathrooms are new, emaculate and featured a heat lamp in the shower area! 

Low lights: 
Palatka (its so run down it's depressing)
the biting no-see-ums, 
the dam at "the deuces" wasn't drawn down so the beach and drift wood were under water, 
the campground lost power in the middle of the night and of course it was the coldest night of our stay!

On to the pictures,


"Mom I'm starving!" 

Cooking for a family of 7! 

Mornings in the camper look like this. 


Evan's favorite bird! 

The baby is content, YES!

A walk through the woods with four goofballs! 

Hills are a big deal for Floridian boys! If possible they climb it! 

We hiked the Azalea trail.

Our littlest hiker! 

Suspension bridge! 

I want one of these in our backyard, ahem, Jed, ahem. 

The crew. 

We found a park. 

Isla's loves slides. 

She's not as fond of rocking fire trucks with her brothers. 

Recovering from an adventuresome morning! 

How does he sleep like that? 

Walking to the boat launch to watch the sunset!
