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.
The fire ban had been lifted in CO, so we were able to build a fire each night. S’mores was enjoyed by all. My lil’ guy was so proud of himself for learning how to cut firewood.
This was a perfect camping location for my husband to do a little catch and release. When he catches the fish, my lil’ guy always wants to hold them and then release them back to their home. My husband caught about 50 fish on this particular camping trip.
We did some hiking and some more fishing and some more exploring which I will share with you in another post, but for now….
