Our Memorial Day Weekend

It turned out to be a bit different that we had planned, but the fact that we were able to camp during Memorial Day weekend with out a reservation meant we were really lucky.

Silly me, I didn't take any pictures of the funky (read:weird) camp ground we ended up in. It is an old mobile home park that the State Park is in the middle of converting to a camp ground...there were several run down mobile homes, some in use and some abandoned, and it was REALLY close to the train tracks!! But it was way better than turning around and not camping at all.
We went with some long time family friends and their kids...they were real troopers. We had at least some sound insulation being in the motor home, but they were tent camping. Very brave! The trains were really quite frequent in the night...and LOUD! But all of us agreed that we got more sleep than we thought we would...that said, our friends decided that one night was plenty, and they headed home after lunch. I totally don't blame them!
That first day we did the nature walk with the little kids, and the second day our family headed up Beacon Rock. It was really amazing how fast that hike was not that all the kids are old enough to do it with out needing any piggy back rides.
I see more good hikes in our future.

All in all, a great weekend!
