Not just a hotel on wheels, but camping at a camp ground for the expressed purpose of doing NOTHING! We did just that last weekend. And it was wonderful! We took the kids' bikes and jump ropes, footballs and scooters. There was a playground and we had a great time making s'mores! The weather was beautiful and we all had a blast. Enjoy the pictures.
Yummy S'mores! We usually have Hershey's chocolate bars for the chocolatey part of the S'more, but I thought it would be fun to shove a Hershey's kiss into the marshmallow....unfortunately I didn't account for the tip of the chocolate kiss cracking through the graham cracker. We made it work though - we just bit off the tip of the chocolate kiss before sticking it in the marshmallow.
Nardos is so good at butchering the English language. Each day, she would ask me if we were going to make "marsh-melons". What a cutie!
Beti thoroughly enjoyed the S'mores!
We fed the fish at the marina. They were huge and VERY eager to eat the fish food we were throwing in!

Yes! Those are fish - scrambling for the little nuggets of food.
This is Peanut (the dog) on his first camping trip. Alex was happy to sit in the camper and keep Peanut company. Peanut was OK, but probably won't go on many more trips. He was freaked out at every little noise. The fact that the campground allowed dogs (on a leash, of course) added to the wide variety of smells that he had to sort through just to find a place to wee! He was a little out of his element. I think next time, he will hang out with Grandpa for the weekend!
Nardos loves to "hug" on Peanut...I'm not sure if he feels the same!
I got the job of untangling the toys! In this picture, I am choosing my "happy".

Bob brought along his trusty guitar. Nardos caught him in this musical moment.
