Extended family arrived on Day Two of our Smoky Mountain camping trip in July. Upon arrival kids immediately explored boulders for climbing and waters for wading. And two generations of dads pitched the tent for our oldest son’s family.
As simple as One . . .
Two and. . .
Three . . . Shelter for three nights and two rainstorms.
Let the snacking and. . .
. . . visiting begin.
Visiting, playing, and sleeping close to nature is a sure appetite enhancer. Oldest son and wife supplied low-country steamed shrimp, grilled fare and watermelon for our first communal dinner. Sis-in-law Lila made mac and cheese, favorite fare of our younger campers.
Daughter-in-law Sarah, right, and grands Stella and Luke are among the 14 family members gathered for the first of our camping meals together.
