Its been 10 years since our favorite camping grounds were blazed by this forest fire. Even after 10 years it is still visible. I have mixed feelings looking at it. On one hand it still makes me sad to see how the forest is never going to be the same. But on the other hand it makes me happy to see the green and the new trees. Yes the forest will never be the way I saw it as a child, but one day it will be a fully grown forest once again.

All growing up we went camping two or more times every summer. Personally I enjoy camping, I love it. I made it clear to my husband when we were getting married that camping was part of the package of marrying me. On the other hand my sister HATES camping. Her husband (my brother-in-law) loves camping. She has agreed to go on one family campout a year.
We joined in on my family camping fun. My husband wasn't feeling well and stayed at my parent's home while I took the kiddos up north.
Grandpa and my brother-in-law went finding in the morning. While my sister and I took our children down to the creek and played in the water. I brought back a bunch of memories. We had gone to the same campgrounds that we stomped as children. We use to play in the same creek.
Now our children have run and played where we did.
My parents went camping too.
I think everyone enjoyed the overnight trip to the woods.
