2009 camping season has begun!!

We headed out on Friday to Elk Neck State Park in MD to kick off the 2009 camping season!! We planned on going to Point Lookout in MD, but the weather forecast for that area quickly turned to rain/snow! So, we switched our reservations to Elk Neck instead. We were there back in October and always said we'd love to go back to explore the town of North East more. We got to do that this time around and had a really great time!!

The campground was full with the exception of maybe 2 spots. Believe it or not, there were quite a few tent campers out! The weather was nice. A bit chilly at times, but rain held off until the nighttime. We did lots of hiking, biking, lounging and exploring! It was a nice relaxing weekend!! There is nothing better than getting out having some great quality family time together!! We got home this afternoon. We can't wait to get out next month!!

Here are some pictures from the weekend!!

Brrr, it looks too cold to be outside! Of course, that's coming from a Southern girl. It looks like you had a lot of fun, though!
