This is what I call a Mother's Day weekend. Sunny Spring weather (even though it is a little chilly), the smell of the campfire, and I am actually sitting here with my feet up underneath a grove of pine trees. Peaceful. Serene. Even with the yelling of my kids in the background from the playground, I am happy. Maquoketa Caves was actually Nate's idea this year for our first camping trip. I had never heard of it, but I am always willing to try something new. This is our tenth camping trip in our fifth wheel and we have yet to stay at the same place twice. The caves are only an hour from our house which was ideal for a weekend we had to be close to home to go to Bubba's soccer game on Saturday and his flag football game on Sunday

Still can't believe this weather. The kids have been enjoying so much time outside, they are so sad when I have to coax them inside to get ready for bed. Getting ready to travel this past weekend to Ohio, I had to think about what to pack because the Quad Cities were supposed to be getting cooler temps and rain/snow as the weekend came. Luckily we skipped out of the crummy weather and headed right into more beautiful weather. Thank goodness because I had packed alot of shorts for the kids!
We sneaked out of school and work a day early to enjoy a nice 3 day weekend in Ohio. Also this way mommy didn't have to travel 7 hours one night and get up and run the next morning. The extra day was awesome.
