The people part of camping.

This week I'm doing a series of camping photos to commemorate our time at our northern property in Young, Arizona. Wanna' see how we roll at camp?

 A little hula-hoop action going on.
 Some time for relaxing...
Bubble blowing.
Crossword puzzles. Every time.
 Raise the roof! Woot-woot!!!
 Got it made in the shade...
 Dirty little feet...
 Collecting critters...
 Hitting golf balls off the back of our property
{a little ceremony to remember our friend, Ron}
 Everyone has a favorite chair...
 and a little attitude...
And lots of love...
 And always, a group photo at the end of the weekend.
We laughed about this photo, wondering why on earth don't we take the group shot at the beginning of the weekend before we all look so scruffy. But as I look at this shot I can see why. There's nothing like the happy smiling faces of a bunch of people who have just enjoyed camping together for an entire weekend.

Not a camper myself either...but you do make it look far more fun than I remember it being.

Maybe a 'before' and 'after' photo would have been fun to compare! But it looks like you all had an amazing time (except for the creepy crawly bit) and you sure have some lovely memories to bring home with you.

Sounds like a great weekend Deb - fab photos!

Since my idea of camping is a long weekend at a hotel, it's hard for me to relate to these pictures. But I'll agree with Scrappyjacky--you do make it look fun! Great weekend for you all! xo

Great to see what goes on up there - for some reason I've always pictured just you and Doug there alone. Love the pictures of the dirty feet. Made me think of yoga. . .

I always like the pics taken at the end of something, when you look back at them they bring back some great memories of what people did without even looking at other pics :)

Looks like you had a fantastic time! We just invested in a camper trailer, so camping is about to become our new past time, I love the idea of a group photo at the end of every trip! thank you for the inspiration!

FABulous photos Debs & very evocative. I still don't get camping & the photo of the creepy crawlies proves my point!! xx

Hula hooping is my favorite sport! It is the only one I'm good at and, yes, I do consider it a sport since it's the only one I'm good at.
