I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

Aiken State Park South Carolina - Trailer Trash Tuesday

This was one of our all time favorite parks. Aiken State Park South Carolina. It was all on sand with pine needles in between the camp sights. The ranger was laid back and easy going and would drive you back and forth on the river for Canoeing.

But the best part was the lakes and all the tadpoles, frogs, snakes, butterflies and lizards. Every afternoon we would bike over to a hidden lake with our baskets full of sandwiches and lemonade.
The kids brought a mason jar to catch critters in then release them unharmed. I swear I need to write a book "101 uses for mason jars."





 

 

The fishing lake was daddy's favorite, this was the lake that had the tadpoles and snakes. So daddy fished, the kids caught critters and I sat on the bench and knitted...each one of us was in our idea of heaven.
 

 
The had a really neat hiking trail...most of it was boardwalk just right for Trinity.
 

This road went all they way around the campground it was a little over a mile and we kept going round and round it and never saw a vehicle. We have this on our "Must go back" list. This is not a campground for someone who needs a Walmart ten minutes away. But more for someone who wants to get away and enjoy nature.

Sweetwater State Park Camping - Trailer Trash Tuesday

Last weekend we camped for four nights at Sweetwater Park on Lake Allatoona. It rained the whole time! The kids brought some handwork, artwork, games and puzzles. And we stayed inside most of the time listening to books on CD from the library. But whenever the clouds took a break from the rain we headed out a few times we just couldn't wait so we got the umbrellas out and went splashing around in the rain.





Sorry, these photos were lost...I am trying to locate them to share








As you can see the Cats really get exhausted roughing it...I think they moved to eat. The kids had to force them out of the trailer for a walk...well OK they just stood by the door meowing to get back in...just too much nature for them I suppose.
