Cool Weather Campout

Three weeks ago, with only two weeks left of our summer break, we had the most beautiful late July weather ever: Mid-70's during the day and mid-50's at night. Seriously unheard of in our little corner of the world! With Savannah at girls' camp for the week, the rest of us decided to head out on an overnight camping trip of our own.

*No bugs! I'm not sure where all the mosquitoes gathered for the evening, but they were not in our campsite. Hooray!! :)

*Good food. Fresh corn on the cob and dutch oven pizza for dinner. S'mores (of course) for dessert. Yum!

*Good company. I love hanging out with this bunch!!

*Hanging out around the campfire. We had some cool fire crystals that turned the fire different colors. 

*Beautiful surroundings. With such a mild summer and just enough rain, everything was still green and lush and beautiful! The picture below was taken when the smoke from our morning campfire highlighted the sun streams through the trees.

What a great way to start winding down our summer. :)
