North/South Lake, Haines Falls, NJ

July 2012

North/South Lake was another favorite trip of ours.  The campground was beautiful, our site was right on the water, and we had a bear walk right by our campsite each night!  It was so neat to see, but very scary to have a bear only 15-20 feet away from us!  We had to sign a waiver at this campground about the bear, and agree to take the necessary precautions – which luckily WE did – because that bear that walked by our campsite ransacked another tenting family’s tent who didn’t follow the rules, and had food inside their tent!  Great hikes here as well.

First Camping Trip! Blue Rocks Family Campground, Lenhartsville, PA

October 2011

Our first camping trip -ever -for all of us! We went to Blue Rocks Family Campground.  Brian and I had never tent camped before, but we thought it would be a great activity to get into for Cello – and for us.  Cello was just 7 months old on this trip.  She was so calm and content – we had a great weekend! Little did we know it was the start of an obsession!

We bought a tent with a front porch area…just like at home 😉
