Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.
My younger son was on spring break this week, so we took a couple of days off to go camping - finally! We usually try to go for the first time in late March, but the weather hasn't cooperated this year. It was actually still not cooperating this week - some rain and one night it got down to 39 F! - but we still had a wonderful time. It is so incredible to leave behind all the electronics and responsibilities and just enjoy the sunshine and fresh air! Here are a few photos of the beautiful Elk Neck State Park in Maryland - we were camped right along the shore of the Elk River, just before it flows into the Chesapeake Bay.
|Waiting for sunset our first evening.|
|Instead of a beautiful sunset, we got dark clouds and a storm!|
|My son (#22) and his friends building a raft on the beach.|

|It was cold and cloudy our first full day, but the clouds were beautiful!|
|The sky cleared! Gorgeous blue sky above the water.|
|We finally got our sunset.|
|The view from our campsite - cozy by the fire with our books.|
|My son and his friends launched their raft (it was just a two-person raft!).|
|A Great Blue Heron who wasn't at all bothered by our presence.|
|Another beach along the Elk River - beautiful day!|
Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend!
