How was everyone’s weekend? :)
On Friday afternoon I said my goodbye’s to Rocko, picked Mike up at work, and hit the road towards Acres of Wildlife Campsite in Steep Falls, Maine.
OK, so the other day I said I was going camping but I guess it was more like glamping. Mike, our friends, Matt and Jaime, and I switched it up this year and rented a house on a campground instead of staying in tents…… And it was awesome!!! I highly recommend this to anyone who likes the idea of camping but doesn’t really like to camp.
Welcome to our Chickadee House:
Yankees :( – Sox :D
On Saturday we rented tubes and floated down the Saco River. This is probably one of my favorite activities that I’ve done all summer. The views were gorgeous and we were able to relax and just float away! Can’t wait to do it again next year!
After a lazy day of tubing we went back to the glampsite for happy hour at Chubs Pub, played a couple of rounds of Scattegories (I’m obsessed), and hung-out by the campfire for the rest of the evening.
Jaime’s Famous S’mores: graham crackers, marshmellow, and peanut butter cup!
After drinking and eating crap all weekend it’s time to get my butt in gear……..
