Not quite fall weather

I love going camping in the fall. We decided last minute to go in a short, 2-night trip to the lake. I've been working quite a bit lately & I knew there were several things that I needed to do around the house, but I agreed. I'm so glad we went. It was wonderful & relaxing!

Jacob got off early on Friday, before he got home, I threw what food we had in the fridge & pantry in the camper. I filled a couple of laundry baskets with short sleeves, long sleeves, sweat shirts, flip flops & tennis shoes for the 4 of us. I was hopeful that it would be a perfect 65ish cool fall crisp air. We got settled into our camping spot a little after lunch, unloaded, ate a quick lunch, put the girls down for a nap, then I headed back to town for a few hours to teach a childbirth class. There was a moment after we unloaded, when Jacob had built a little fire...I had made me a cup of pumpkin spice coffee with whip on top...we were both sitting around the fire, sweating! I wanted it to be a cool, fall day so bad. Reality was that it was a muggy 80 degrees! After teaching the class, we ate dinner at a local's favorite with Nana & Papa who also had their camper at the lake next to us. We all chowed down on some fried food! We went back to the camp site, sat around a bonfire with Bobo & Cassi who was spending the night with Nana & Papa. Saturday morning, I drank several cups of my pumpkin spice coffee as the day warmed up.
We enjoyed a big breakfast outside at the picnic table.  Then Bella and Uncle Bobo fed some ducks.
Bella patted her lap saying "Here ducky, ducky."
Bella really wanted to go swimming. Sure it's the tail-end of September, but it's a warm day...why not? As much as I was trying to pretend like it was fall didn't change the fact that it was a warm day! She & her daddy had a ball in the water!
We played at the park, took naps, grilled burgers, roasted marshmallows & watched Bama football.

I love those Daddy-daughter pictures. And who doesn't love some Bama football? We're going to the Alabama/Mizzou game in two weeks. I have never seen them play... but I am sooo excited. :)

In other news, I am glad you took a little time off work and enjoyed some time at the lake. You've been workin' hard for the money. :)
