Guys, guess what I did this weekend
I went CAMPING.
Like, in a tent.
Me + Nature = BFFs.
We went up to Manchester State Park, which is north of Tacoma on the Sound with some of my family.
We did a little hiking around. Both the husband and I are five, so we get really excited about weird trees
This area was some sort of military base back in the day, so there were some random things like this bunker
Doesn’t it look like an Escher picture?
At low tide there was random sealife to see
I wanted to take one home, but the husband told me no.
Their wives watched and said it was impossible. Which clearly was a challenge to keep trying.
We were telling the truth.
Thankfully they gave up before any head injuries were incurred.
I blame it on years of Boy Scouts.
My brothers would come home from camp with great new facts like “you can light hot chocolate mix on fire if you try hard enough” every summer.
Foil dinners! I seriously love these. Mine was beef, potatoes, carrots, squash, and mushrooms. Yummmm.
(also see the beer can? I never drink beer in cans. This was exciting to me. Rolling Rock tastes like college.)
For dessert we had dump cake.
Sexy name right?
More boy scout cooking:
(this was actually homemade peach. Real boy scouts use cans)
All cooked up on coals.
No pictures of the final product because I was busy eating it. And really, the result isn’t that pretty.
Were you a scout? I was a girl scout for 13 years. But the camp I went to had beds. Girl Scouts don’t have to rough it.
Do you have any camping foods you love? I adore foil dinners, and smores!
