Weekend before last, we took our new tent and spent a few days camping at Croft State Park, about an hour away.  It was a very relaxing weekend, and despite a decent amount of rain, we stayed dry in our tent and had an enjoyable few days =)  I had a half day at work that Friday, so we were able to leave and get to the campground by mid afternoon.

Getting set up 
Andrew getting the fire going to cook our supper...
Mmmm... in progress... 
The contents of our foil hobos...
And the Delicious final product!
Grilled Kielbasa sausage with roasted potatoes, green beans, & onions 
Enjoying the last bit of daylight in my hammock... so peaceful =)
We slept well and got some Much needed abundance of rest... waking to the sound of rain on the tent both Saturday and Sunday mornings.  A good sound as long as it isn't accompanied by Getting wet, which we really didn't =)   The temperatures were perfect for camping... cool enough in the evenings to enjoy a campfire, warm during the day for hiking and being outside, and not so warm that the bugs were out to get us =)

By middle of the day on Saturday, the rain was done for a while, and we were able to go for some short hikes.
Rushing [muddy] river 

This lake was just down the hill from our campsite.
Another campfire meal!
Burritos! They were oh so good!
I'd done some searching for campfire meals... the hobos I knew about and had done something of the sort a Long time ago.  Easy and tasty.  The burritos however were a great and different idea!  Beef, black beans, red peppers, rice, onions, taco seasoning, mozzarella... and some salsa on top... Super easy camping meal since everything was done in advance.  We froze the burritos and by night #2 of camping, they had thawed and were a quick heat-up meal!
We had quite the fire Saturday night...
While it was wet Sunday morning from some earlier showers, we managed to pack up before another round of rain came through!  All in all a great weekend =)
