Our camping adventure began heading towards the Willow River campground outside of Hudson, Wisconsin just across the border from Minnesota. This was the same campground we went to last summer, but this year we had Bodhi in tow!
We set up our tent right away. We weren't sure how all five of us were going to fit in there!
The weather was clearing up, so we headed down the long steep path to Willow Falls.
It was just as beautiful as I remembered from last year and more stunning than expected.
We headed up the 200+ (!) stairs to get a great overlooking view.
Bodhi didn't want anything to do with the stairs, so Joe brought him around a long incline and met us about halfway on our way back down to the falls. Everyone was pretty winded!
Back at camp we watched the kids play in the tent, jump rope and blow bubbles.
We went into the town of Hudson for a yummy dinner and then came back, because the kids wanted to get started right away making s'mores!
Lowell got a huge kick out of charring his marshmallows.
YUM! Several s'mores were had by all.
Then we settled in for an evening by the campfire. Chloe worked in her smash journal.
Bodhi was pretty tuckered out by the end of the afternoon. Pretty exciting day for him!
We woke up pretty early and took a short walk by the lake. Then we headed home very tired, with smiles on our faces. We can chalk up another fun summer camping adventure!
