Camping with my boys

This past week, William, Charlie and I went up to Cyprus Lake (the provincial campground just south of Tobermory, Ontario) to camp for a few nights. I would be kidding if I implied it was not a whole lot of work, but it was absolutely worth it.  The boys were (mostly) wonderful, and we spent 3 days exploring one of the most breathtaking places in the country. It was a beautiful thing to spend time with my kids doing something that we all genuinely love - hiking, lake swimming, sitting by the campfire, and sleeping all snuggled up together.

Here are a few pics...

The boys also thought that it was important for me to include notes on their most recent culinary creation, called simple "The Masterpiece"

Squish both sides of a pie iron / campfire cookers with refrigerator crescent roll dough (no need to grease the pie irons).  Top one side with marshmallows, chocolate chips, caramels, and crumbled graham crackers.  Put the two sides of the pie iron together and place in hot campfire coals for a few minutes, checking it frequently until it is golden brown.  Let it cool (else you burn your mouth on the hot gooey goodness) and enjoy!!!  Needless to say it took them a while to come down from the sugar high that night...
