Halloween Camping Trip

Since our camping trip in August ended pretty quickly, then we made sure to reschedule another camping trip. We decided that we would do a Halloween weekend trip with our cousins. Jason was on call (boo!) but Nannie came along for some fun! We left Friday, after work, and the kids didn't waste anytime breaking out the headlamps and the walkie talkies.
We weekend was full of fun fall activities. The first thing on Saturday morning was the pumpkin painting. The kids really got into it.
We couldn't have asked for a better weekend. It was in the 80s everyday and my kids ran around in shorts. I love the idea of camping--playing outside, getting away from phones/tv and  watching the kids use their imagination to play.
All of the campers had their areas decorated. It was so neat to walk up and down the rows to see all the decorations.
We spent the rest of the day playing, making crafts, taking hayrides and getting ready for an evening of trick-or-treating.
Saturday evening, we changed into our costumes and headed around, camper to camper, to get some candy treats. The kids loved seeing all the decorations and all the other kids that were dressed up.
We finished out the night with full treat bags and a few trips through the haunted graveyard. We visited the graveyard earlier in the day so the kids could see it in the light. They were all so brave!
We left after breakfast and after we cleaned up the camper on Sunday morning. We were going to try and stay through lunch but the kids weren't behaving the best so we headed out a little earlier than we planned. We really enjoyed ourselves and I'm so thankful for time with our cousins.
