Headed to the Campground

I should be in bed right now but I just finished packing for our 2 day adventure to the campground that my In-Laws are Seasonal Campers at.  Each summer we pack up the boys and my husband and I head to his parent's motorhome which is located in a nice, quaint campground in southern NJ.

Lots of swimming, bike riding, crafting and eating to be done.  Can't wait to roast those marshmallows!!  I know I'll have lots of pictures to share with you when we return from our little family vacation.

Have a great Summer.........let the fun begin!
