Weekend Camping

So we went camping at San Mateo State Beach this past weekend. I'd share pics but um, yeah I left the camera in the motorhome. Woops! Will have to run by it in storage soon so I can get those pics! The kids had a wonderful time. We had a decent campsite too. Unfortunately, this campground is 1.5 miles from the Beach. But since we told the kids we were going to the Beach, we made the trek to the Beach. Just wait until you see the wagon, loaded with kids, chairs and ice chest. This "trek" was more like a hike. There were two BIG hills. And hauling this probably close to 200 lb wagon was not fun. At least I didn't have to do it. Thanks Babe! =) So we were able to spend about 2 hours at the Beach. It took us almost 40 mins to hike to the Beach. On the way back we took the road 1/2 way and then got a lift from our friends who had a car.

We had a good time. This campground would not be my ultimate favorite to go to. There really isn't much to do. The Beach is far away. There is no playground. I mean you can hang at camp but the sites aren't all that big either and I know it's summer but all the sites were really brown, as in dirt. And lots of it. We had water and electric hook-ups which were nice. But with CA raising its prices on camping, this campground will now be $60 a night. Definitely not worth it in my opinion.

Pics will come soon! I promise!

Glad you made your camping trip! What a bummer though that you had to hike to the beach...yeah it will be nice to see a pic of this loaded wagon. Isn't it nice when the husbands are around to help take care of the kids. Yeah, $60 for camping...that seems like quite a's not like there is maid service involved!
