We had a wonderful trip......

Hey everybody, we are back from our camping trip. And it was wonderful. We had a day of warm weather, with a night of chilling temperatures that made sitting around a campfire a delight. And then we had a day of not so warm weather, but it was still a gorgeous time.
We went to Manatee Springs State Park and I have to tell you the wildlife there was incredible.
We were sitting around the fire one morning and three deer walked into the campsite adjoining us. It was incredible. I have a picture, but I can't get it to download because my internet connection sucks, but, it was beautiful.
We saw manatees in the river. And for the first time in a long time, I was able to walk about 1/2 mile. That was a treat for me.
We camped with a friend of my husband's from his work and his family. It was so much fun. Our children are similar in age and they had a ball and played together like they had known each other forever.
We are planning on camping with them again around Spring Break time.

I hope you all enjoyed your Valentines' Day weekends and enjoyed any treats that you may have gotten.

Last chance for Becky in the Trenches to contact me about her prize from winning my contest. If I don't hear from her today, the prize will have to be given to someone else.

Have a great day, and an even better week.

Welcome back! Your trip sounds wonderful! We are looking forward to camping with the kids this year - Littlest one is finally old enough to sleep all night in a tent!

While I am not a huge fan of the great outdoors, it does sound like you had a nice time! The manatee sightings would have been very cool!
