Good morning and happy Tuesday! Excited to post a short recap of our camping trip last Saturday. Even though it was only one night and two half-days, it was a blast!
After we ran the Port Fish Days 8k Saturday morning with my dad (I’ll recap in a later blog post), we packed up our stuff and headed West to Devil’s Lake near the Wisconsin Dells to camp for one night with our good friends who live in Oshkosh. The drive was nice, and Baymax did a wonderful job So proud of him, as ALWAYS!
When we got there, we immediately set up camp, made some snacks, and went on our first hike. We visited a doggy swimming area (which Baymax loved/hated at the same time) and saw some gorgeous sites. This hike took us up up up a looong steep hill that was mostly a gravel path, since Kasey and Matt (our friends) wanted to see the sunset at a good vantage point
Needless to say, it was absolutely worth the sweaty hike up and down, and Baymax was pretty sleepy when we got to the top
Pretty much the cutest picture EVER❤ Photo cred: Patrick.
We let him rest at the top and chew on some of his choice sticks that he found around us.
The way down was ALL ROCKS. And we had to jump and leap and maneuver any way we could to get down. It was a blast! Got in over 20,000 steps that day
We grilled the most DELICIOUS chicken sausages over the course of two days. We had spinach and garlic (eh, to me) but then also had roasted red pepper and asiago cheese (WINNER!). Onnnnnnn pretzel buns because #duh.
Settling down for the night was so relaxing. Nothing really compares to that campfire warmth and smell.
That night was INTERESTING, to say the last. We had a TON of rain, just torrential downpours, and luckily our tent didn’t flood. Baymax did okay with the lightning and thunder but still required much attention at 2am to calm him down. Anything for the puppy :)
I love my family❤ We had such a great time and I’m SO excited for when we leave on our LONG camping trip in Rocky Mountain National Park next week!
Peace, love, and GO CAMPING
