Camping in Kentucky

Saturday morning we drove with two other couples, Josh and Leah and Scott and April, to Frankfort, KY to go camping and canoeing at Still Waters Campground. On the way there we stoped at a yard sale that spands the entire length of highway 127. It was a pretty neat concept...the sale lasts all weekend and people sell everything right there along the side of the highway (it's a two lane highway, so it's not as dangerous as it sounds). People sold everything you could imagine...vhs tapes, christmas decorations, clothes, shoes, records, camping gear, books, cups, shelves, chairs, squirrel skin blankets (Seriously! But we do live in KY), lots of antiques, and so so so much more. When we got to the campground, we checked in and then started setting up camp right away.
Here's a pic of the boys setting up the tent we shared with Josh and Leah:All done:Our home away from home:After that was done we all got ready to try out the canoes.

The girls, right before our canoe adventure...April, me, and Leah:

The boys trying to figure it out...just kidding! they were good with the canoe:Tried to get everyone in the pic:
After the canoe trip the boys made dinner: burgers, hotdogs, chips and cookies-we were really roughing it!The rest of the night was spent around the campfire...s'mores were such a treat! We had a great time with our new friends and we definitely want to do it again soon!
