Mt. Magazine Camping Adventure

This weekend we decided to go for an overnight camping trip to Mt. Magazine! The views were breathe taking! We picked the kids from school and stopped at sonic for happy hour and a snack!
Then we headed to the campground. 

We got camp sat up and roasted hotdogs and s'mores for dinner! The temp was perfect but the ground was hard so there was a lot of tossing and turning. 
In the morning we had a great breakfast of eggs, bacon, and pancakes! Then we packed up camp and headed up to the lodge. I was feeling a little yucky so Misa and the kids did a 1/2 mile hike up to the highest point and I took a nap in the car. 
We then started the drive home stopping in Paris, Ar at the Dari-Delight for yummy burgers and fresh made onion rings! 
It was a great getaway full of laughs and memories!
