a photo journal – easter at the campground

growing up with weekends at a campgound wasn’t always fun…summer heat, more than enough bugs, and the lack of your friends being there to hang out with. honestly, growing up i didn’t like that my parents had a seasonal site at a local campground and we spent nearly every. single. weekend there for a majority of my life.

that was until i moved out and had kids of my own. now i enjoy the same campground i grew up at. it’s peaceful; it’s quiet, and my girls get to run around and burn off their never-ending energy.

my parent’s still have a seasonal site at that exact same campground. i love that they still do and i can bring my girls there to do some of the traditions that i always did. like easter, for one.

the past few years, if and when it’s nice out we go there for easter and enjoy a cookout and my girls get to enjoy an easter egg hunt. this year was no different.

us girls were in charge of bringing dessert this year, so we chose to bring our favorite funfetti cupcakes which meant for a morning of baking. and with two girls, LOTS of pink frosting.

it was one of the first nicer days of the year so we were all really excited to get there and enjoy the weather. dad had the grill going, mom was in the camper frying up some potatoes, and the girls were eager to hurry up and eat so they could get on with their easter egg hunt.

after being very spoiled by the easter bunny, the girls and i enjoyed some time at the park before heading home.

children only have one childhood. make it memorable and fill with traditions.

fall bucket list.

there is something about fall that brings me such a sense of joy; and it’s this time of the year that makes me most thankful that i live in the midwest. there is nothing better than a midwest fall…the crisp, autumn air and apple orchards.

i’m so excited to throw on my leggings and boots, wear my hair down, and bust out ALL the flannels. i love the promise fall brings of over-sized sweaters and cozy blankets, and of course…football!

i wrote out my fall bucket list below, as i try to each time fall comes around; it gives me a gentle reminder to get out there and do the things i want to do.

here’s my bucket list of fall activities that’ll have you enjoying all this season has to offer:
