a few months back, we made plans to take brody camping at lake carlyle for the long weekend. needless to say, we picked the hottest weekend we have had so far this summer. it was their fireworks festival, so we wanted to be a part of it this year.
we were thankful for our pop-up and we spent a good deal of time inside enjoying the air conditioning.
we had a few short adventures outside too. the first was a walk to the suspension bridge and some up close examinations of the fishies.
we made sure to drink lots of water since the weather was so warm. b loves to drink out of a 'grown up' bottle.
we spent two afternoons at the pool too. it was so nice to dip our feet in and cool off.
Saturday, we went to the fireworks festival over the lake. It was nice to be so close to the fireworks, and watch their reflection over the lake.
sunday, we headed into breese, il in search of some good food and air conditioning. on the way, we encountered a john deere dealer.
b was in tractor heaven!
we ate at a hole in the wall pizza place, the food was ah-maz-ing!!
so, that was pretty much our little camping weekend in photos.
hope you enjoyed it!
