I will start off by saying ....I am not a camper....I have tried several times....starting when I was a campfire girl in grade school.....and we had to cook our dinner in a tin can at Camp Aloha....I progressed to the tent my Dad got for the backyard...and almost made it all night....then fast forward to when I dated my husband and we camped at Lake Havasu for the world jetski championships....that was pretty fun....I brought my Laura Ashley sheets and blowdryer...I even tried to camp again recently with my husband and kids...I just can't handle the amount of work it takes to make the camping experience "happen"....packing, setting up "camp".....muddy laundry...unpacking.....while my husband fully enjoys himself by the campfire smoking cigars and drinking beer with his brothers....last year the tent went up in our backyard and I couldn't fathom sleeping out there when I could be all cozy in my king size bed....so I just yelled goodnight from the deck!....I have plenty of wonderful memories without having to spend one more night in a tent......anyway ....a recent post on a friends blog really got me thinking that I would have to give this camping thing one more try!....maybe I should check out Cook's Forest????...the cabins looked so quaint....I was telling my Dad all about it....hiking, playing in the stream, the canoe etc....and he said we could do all of that at his new house.....he moved in last fall and this was our first summertime visit......and it turns out it is the ultimate "campground"!!!!......the pond, the raft for four people...yeah, right!...hiking, quads, fishing, playing along the streams, flying kites and all of this just steps away from his beautiful new home------NO TENT! NO CABIN!...fully stocked by his lovely girlfriend with snacks, drinks, ice cream etc...and she so wonderfully keeps the washer and dryer running full speed so everytime we change clothes for the next activity they magically appear washed and folded for us.....we were truly spoiled on our camping trip...and I didn't mention there was no need to dig through watery coolers for something to make for dinner.....we ordered take out!!!....the kids loved it ...I loved it!! Gracie our dog loved it!! check her out on the quad... we can't wait to camp next month....thanks again Dad!!!
