An Impromptu Camping Trip
With harvest finally being done and the nice weather continuing we decided to go on a one night camping trip to Buffalo Pound Provincial Park this weekend. It was good to get away even for a day. Camping is a great way to just get away from it all. It can be a bit of work but when you are only going for one night you only have to pack the bare essentials. There is not much you can't live without for one day. We arrived Friday evening, set up camp, cooked our supper over the fire, and then just sat around enjoying the fire and snacks. My two sisters, and one of my brothers joined us and we helped them set up their tent in the dark.
Saturday morning after breakfast we went on a hike. We hiked to this old house. It was built in 1903 and is pretty impressive looking. It is part of the Nicolle homestead. It was a good hike, we got some exercise, and enjoyed a nice fall day.
In the afternoon we spent some time on the beach. It was pretty windy but the girls still enjoyed playing in the sand.
LK enjoyed crawling around outside eating leaves and dirt. However all the fresh air tired him out and he had a snooze in the stroller.
After going on another short walk through a marsh on the boardwalk, it was time to head home. It was great to get away even for a little while.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
