Summertime - Gyo Fujikawa in Oh, What a Busy Day!

Rock in a hammock
Go on a hike
Dunk in a pool.
Have a picnic.
Sleep in a tent.

We're hoping to accomplish all of that this weekend when we're tent camping.

The food plan, from the master list on my beloved clipboard:

corn on the cob over the fire
mountain pies with caprese salad inside

coffee, milk

hummus, bread
tomatoes, cukes
Monster cookies

sausage sandwiches
green beans

fruit & yogurt

hummus, bread,
caprese salad

We're going camping because the children will love it so much.  It's also a super-thrifty vacation: we're camping for $68 this weekend and borrowing all the gear from friends at church, thanks to our church's sharing list.  I'll be back next week, after I crawl out from the pile of laundry!

Camping in the dog days of summer?! And with tasty menu planning even. You have my eternal admiration.

We're going camping with some dear friends in a couple weeks. It's always so much fun - the boys love it! Have a great trip!!!

I love your food plan, I think I may use parts of it for our upcoming trip! My husband and I will be camping in Colorado (Cherry Creek State Park) in a few weeks and I've been trying to come up with some good food ideas.

Why don't you come camp in my backyard and feed me while you're here?! Have fun!

We're going to the church campout in two weeks. Of course, I'm most interested in the menu, too.

P.S. I need to know what a sharing list is.

What a wonderful list of yummy foods! Mmmmm, I want to go camping so badly!

Punk, it really was cooler in the mountains. More trees, less asphalt.

DB, the sharing list is a list of possessions church members are willing to share with other church members. We put things on the list like canning equipment, unusual tools, audiovisual equipment, bikes, etc. - the idea is to save resources (each household doesn't need their own rototiller or bike carrier, for example).

I remember so fondly camping trips with my parents. I am sure you are making memories you will all look back on with joy in years to come!
