Camping At Verona Beach

This past weekend we were lucky enough to be invited camping at Verona Beach State Park. This was the third time that Chris and I have joined our friends for a weekend at this lovely little camp ground, but it was Lewis’ first time doing any camping and staying in a tent. He loved it and did absolutely great with tent sleeping!

Lewis had a wonderful time exploring the campgrounds, playing on the two playgrounds, gathering acorns, riding a bike trailer, making new friends, and eating camp food. Although the campground is on a lake and the park has a nice sandy swimming beach, we didn’t get to go swimming while we were there. The weather was a bit chilly and windy for most of our stay, and the beach was also closed due to blue-green algae blooms. We had a lot of fun and kept busy with other things though!

Lewis' first time in a real sand box. Too bad we can't build him one at our apartment!

Campfire and sunset. Lewis was completely entranced by sitting and watching the fire and the sparks drifting up.
