For you scrappers, I have a new sketch coming this Friday on the Feeling Scrappy blog.
To kick off the merge of this site with my family blog, here are a few photos from our first camping trip of the year. We stayed in Bryce Canyon National Park and while the weather was less than ideal (mostly rainy!), we had a nice time.
Besides the scenery, we enjoyed the campfire, visiting with my parents (who met us at our campsite), playing, coloring, and taking little walks. The kiddos loved walking around, finding pine cones and other goodies and just basically being outside. (Ok, and looking for "deer poop" as Abby can now tell you...well, it sounds more like "dee poo.")
(Christine, I am sure you'll laugh about this!!) I have a list of campfire cooking ideas I want to try. This was an easy one that we'll definitely do again-"Hobo Popcorn." It was super easy and really good.
In the center of a 12" x12" square of Heavy Duty foil, add a TBS of oil (I used canola) and a TBS of popcorn kernels. Bring the corners up to twist together on the end of a stick and hold over the fire. When it starts to pop, shake it up a bit to keep from burning it. My pouch turned out perfectly but Jer got a little antsy with his, stuck it straight into the fire and burnt most of it. Carefully open it up and add some butter, salt or whatever else you like. Next time, I am determined to try biscuits on a stick. I started to cook one this trip but it started pouring on us right as I stuck it over the fire.
Of course, the morning we left, it was beautiful and sunny!
I hope you have a great day!!
