Camping Adventure

Technically, we didn't camp but we did "rough it" for a few days in the wilderness. We rented a tiny cabin at Yogi Bear's Park in Bloomington, Indiana which is about an hour and 15 minutes from our house. This camp ground was precious! So many cute activities for the kids. I didn't take a picture of the outside of the cabin (oops) but I did take two of the inside... You will see what I mean when I said small.

The "kitchen"

The beds

You could climb a ladder and there was a sleeping loft but Chad and Parker used it as a place to play cars. Parker loved the ladder more than anything.

The park had two pools and one of them was a kiddie pool with a few spray things.

Playing at the playground

Yogi Bear came by for a visit!

Chad trying to start a campfire. (A random kid showed up to help.) :)

We cooked hotdogs and then smores!

Up and down the ladder...

We went on a hike on a trail. It was really muddy but fun. Thankfully we stayed in a cabin because it POURED and stormed on Saturday night. I would've died if I was in a tent.

I almost didn't put this because I look soooo rough... Please forgive..
They had free arts and crafts so Parker painted a frog.

The finished product..

It also had a little putt putt golf course. We probably played it a million times..

They had a huge jumping pillow but Parker never did get on it. Too many big kids...

They had a "hay" ride through the campgrounds.
We left the campground Saturday evening and drove into Bloomington for dinner. Bloomington is where the Indiana University campus is located. The campus is beautiful. We ate at the most amazing wing place.

It was a fun weekend and we'd love to go again soon.

We were talking about how much more fun it would be with friends camping with us. I brought up you and Will but we were sure if ya'll are "the camping" type. :) Not that we really camped..

Just now saw this. I am definitely the camping type if we stay indoors. Haven't braved the great outdoors yet but I'm willing to try!
