Labor Day Camping

In my last few blog posts, I shared individual photos from a little family camping trip we took over the Labor Day weekend.  Today, I  share a few more memories, along with a few stories.  We decided to camp at South Fork campground outside of Silverthorne, CO. We ended up with a beautiful, secluded campsite with all around mountain views.   As we were setting up our campsite, my lil’ guy spotted a butterfly that was injured.

As he gets older, his heart gets bigger.  He truly is becoming my budding environmentalist.  Before cooking dinner, we decided to take a quick stroll around the campground to the South Fork River.  On our lil’ exploration, we spotted bees visiting flowers, red berries, mushrooms, and wildflowers.
