Our Everyday Adventures: Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park (Tabor City, NC)

I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are. -unknown

A few weeks ago we packed up our new camper and headed out of town... this time with one of the grandmas in tow.

Now don't get me wrong... we love the back woods, super chill, outdoorsy camp sites... but we wanted to have a little more "fun" on this trip. After some searching, we found Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Daddy Joe's in Tabor City, NC. This is our new favorite "all inclusive resort" type camp ground. Seriously... so much fun! Between all the pools and water slides, trails, camp activities, putt putt, coffee shop and ice cream visits, we think the boys had a good time too... We also found out it was "Christmas in July Week." Man, people love them some tacky Christmas decor! (feel free to click through the portfolio below.)

I love documenting our every day lives, and that includes our vacations and adventures! If you're doing something fun soon and would love to have it captured, I'd love to tag along!

Our Everyday Adventures: Barnwell State Park

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

Last weekend we went out on another little adventure, trying to meet our goal of staying in all of our state parks, then all of our states. 

We found one off the beaten path this time... we knew we needed to have some real rest and not much to "do" other than hanging out and fishing and riding bikes and such.

This place didn't disappoint. It was such slow living in fact that the two rangers made friends with my menfolk and kept coming around just to chat and invited us to a campfire (although it rained us out.) 

Definitely what we needed for some rest and relaxation!

Going on a vacation this summer? I'd love to chat about having me tag along to document it! 

How To Babysit A Grandpa

"Babysitting a Grandpa is fun-- if you know how."

Dads and Grandpas are always so hard to buy for... or is that just in our family?

We were walking around Target hoping for some inspiration and came across the book "How To Babysit A Grandpa." The man child decided we NEEDED to get it for Pa and let him read it to him for Father's Day. 

Well OK then... 

Time with each other and images that will last a lifetime (and beyond.) Best gift for someone who has everything!
