Today marks the end of summer, traditionally, and for us as well since we just returned from our last summertime camping trip. All our camping for a while now will be cold camping with raging fires and lots of layered clothing. Pools and beaches will be replaced by hiking and fishing. I am so glad that the kids love camping as much as I did when I was young and I dont think they have figured out yet that the reason we go camping so often is that it is the only form of vacation we can afford :) Our next adventure will take us back to North Carolina to a hot air balloon festival and then to a halloween weekend after that back at the beach.
My favorite time of the year is almost here, right around the corning...a chill in the air but not quite cold, kids playing soccer, football on TV, back to school routines and roaring campfires. As much as love summer, fall has always been the best season of the year, marking the end to summer and the beginning of a wonderful extended holiday season. Fall, I love you.
