As I mentioned earlier today, Joe and I went on a little camping trip this last weekend with some close friends! It was really laid back, fun and just a tad wet. We were hoping to escape the grey but the weather didn't cooperate. We've gone camping on Memorial Day almost every year since we got married, it's turned into a little tradition that we look forward to in the spring.
This time we stayed at Tumwater Campground right outside of Leavenworth, WA. The spots were really secluded and we had plenty of space, running water in the bathrooms but no showers. Since Joe used to work at REI we have tons of their gear, and our site can look a bit like an advertisement at times! The shelter came in really useful this trip! It's wonderful to have everything stay dry!!
We have a bunch of favorite camping meals but shish kabobs are definitely at the top of the list. We also made baked apples this trip and I brought little pie-crust cookies to put on top, those were delish! We'll definitely be making those again!
Joe brought his mountain bike this year and got to ride a sweet trail called "Xanadu", we hiked up the fire-road with him the next day and he rode it again!
While Joe was riding the first day, Pete & Hannah and I went into Leavenworth for a bit. We did a little window shopping and played a round of mini-golf. More of an actual miniature golf course than the typical hit-your-ball-at-a-windmill place. I've never been golfing before, but this was actually really fun and didn't take all day.
After all that golfing and bike riding we had brats loaded with sauerkraut and mustard and some beer. You kind of have to if you visit a fake German town. Well, I suppose that's not entirely true but those brats sure hit the spot.
I hope everyone enjoyed a short week! Any favorite camping spots that you'd like to share ... that aren't top secret? What are your favorite meals to take camping?
