camping adventure

this past weekend we went on a little camping adventure with some of ours friends
we traveled to North Georgia to spend the day and night on Stone's family's property.
which just so happens to be on the top of the mountain, so the views driving up were really something.

  we couldn't have picked a better weekend to go.  
we had perfect fall weather. warm during the day, cooler at night. 
it was my first ever camping experience, because i don't think
sleeping in a tent on our beach houses front porch really counts

so for those short 24 hours we really roughed it
sleeping on the ground, setting up tents, cooking hot dogs and smores in the campfire 
and to top it all off: peeing in the woods,
the ultimate outdorsey experience.
it was all so great. and relaxing to just be able to be outside all day long chatting and exploring

i also learned that dating a pitcher really does come in handy
 i ended up bringing wine on this little trip of ours, except forgot the wine opener.
but! thanks to stone and his perfect aim he was able to get it open....
via whacking the top of it with a machete

desperate times call for desperate measures :)

So fun! I love your little boots. My hubs loves to camp so this would be right up his alley. Glad you had a good weekend girly!

this sounds perfect! The smores, fire, tents, EVERYTHING. I love it! And thank god for machetes!

have i ever told you about my peeing in the woods experience?

kurt and I went dogsledding and when we got there I had to go. Unfortnately there were no bathrooms while we had to wait for our sled so we trampsed into teh woods and I screamed and cried because i just COULDNT GO! And I kept yelling at poor kurt to look away. He was all, 'relax! let it out! it will flow out! dont let it hit your legs'

okay kurt..guys suck for it being so easy to go in the woods haha

camping is without a doubt one of my most favorite things in the world! Especially when it's with your boy... something about cozying up inside a tent is the most wonderful feeling in the world. I'm so jealous you went camping this weekend! Looks like you had a blast!

nicole said...

i wish you had a video of him opening the wine. seriously. amazing.

genelle said...

That looks like fun!
I love the machete part. It's nice to have a handy guy around to do masculine things such as serving you wine :).
Will you be going camping again soon?

Jenna said...

Looks like so much fun! - I haven't been camping in forever!

Huge props to the bf for his machete stunts - that really would come in very handy! haha

There is nothing I love more than camping! I could do without the potty in the woods thing though:-) Cute pictures!
