This past weekend I went camping with my nephew Joseph at Westmoreland State Park. We joined my mother-in-law Fayth, her husband Tom, and her sister Frances. We got there on Friday and left on Sunday.
On Friday we set up the rest of the camp site (F & T had been there since Thursday).
We checked out the amphitheater where they had furs of animals that live in the area, and they also had a big fire going and s'mores.
We also checked out the other side of the park and saw a mother osprey with her nest.
For dinner, Tom and Fayth cooked an awesome meal (steaks, rice, veggies), and then we just hung out at the camp site.
On Saturday morning, we took Joseph to meet his boyscout troop leader, so he could participate in a 4th of July parade that was going on to benefit the Oak Grove fire department. The parade ended at Ebb Tide Beach.
After the parade, we made our way to visit the birthplace of George Washington-a great way to celebrate our country. We toured the grounds and got to peek inside some of the buildings there.
And visited the burial grounds of George Washington's ancestors.
After the walk back from the burial grounds, we decided it was time to head back to camp and have lunch & then go swimming at the park.
Joseph enjoyed the slide & the pool.
And the river.
Fayth and Tom came up on their kayak, and then Tom and Joseph paddled down the water.
Later that night, back at camp, we had another great camp dinner and enjoyed s'mores later.
It rained Saturday night, so on Sunday morning everyone packed everything up. Joseph and I headed to Fossil Beach to look for shark teeth around low tide.
We only found a few teeth but it was worth it.
It was a great camping trip, and we can't wait to go again.
