November 22, 2009Location: Deer Creek State Park
One of the greatest things about state parks is the connection with nature. After eating our oatmeal breakfast and finding creative ways to clean our hands and dishes, we were off on a family hike. We found a trail lined with leafless trees leading us to a partially drained lake. Signs of fall were all around and interesting to those of us used to the evergreen landscape of GA.
Much of the day was spent driving, driving, driving… Devotions today were taken from a chapter of the book, Singing through the Night. Other than that there was a lot of reading, wading through school work, music and audio book listening, facebooking, drawing, bickering, sleeping…. You get it. Nine people – plenty of activity.
Once again we arrived at our campground, Hershey KOA, after dark. We made sure that this time we chose a campground that had warm showers and water hookups. It was a special treat to have full hook ups and not worry about how much water we used to clean the pile of dishes that had built up over the past few days. The day closed with bowls of hot chicken soup, toasted Ciabatta bread, Brownies and a viewing of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. We're feeling a bit more like we're on vacation.
