Family Vacation: Part 1

Our family vacation started last Monday and we had a household of excited kids on our hands. Last fall at the school's big fundraiser I purchased a camper rental on the silent auction and we decided to put it to good use on our vacation. The camper rental could either be a pull behind camper for 3 nights or a fold-down camper for 7 days. So, Monday afternoon, Keith picked up the pull behind camper and headed home for us to start loading the camper and head out. We decided to go camping at the Lewis and Clark Recreation Park by Yankton for three nights.

Ashlin too excited to sleep on her bunk bed.

Justin sitting on his bunk bed. He loved to turn the light on and off.

Erica watching a movie on the portable DVD player. We took this along just in case it rained.

Packed and ready to go. Keith and I were still loading all of the stuff and these three were already in their seats and buckled up.

Yankton is only an hour from our house so we didn't camp that far from home. Upon arrival at the park, we checked in and found our campsite #70E. Keith and I set the camper up and we ate supper (hotdogs and chips). Then we went on a bike ride to explore the park and the bike trails.

Take care,


  1. The beach post I just had was in yankton! We drove through the campground at thought it would be fun to pull our camper down there. We love to camp and it's a great family activity! The swim beach at the state park is wonderful isn't it?

    I hope you had a great vacation - It sounds like the kids were very excited. :)

  2. What a fun way to spend your vacation. Love the pics of the kids hanging out in the camper.

  3. Awesome! As you know we LOVE to camp. Can't wait to hear about the rest!
