silver falls

Oh, Silver Falls... you made for a camping delight.

We planned a last-minute camping trip to Silver Falls State Park. Stace and her family were going to join us, but the brakes on their truck had other ideas. They had to turn back, but we carried on.

It was as stressful as camping with kids always is, but still pretty idyllic. After staying up late for s'mores, Grace fell right to sleep while Addy sang to herself with the cover of the tent pulled back so she could look at the stars (her request). Darling.

(What was NOT darling was realizing Doug and I forgot to bring the warm blanket we'd planned to cover us. We had flannel sheets and a thin blanket, so whilst our girls slept great, we did not. Son of a gun.)

The next day we hiked to three of the ten falls in the area. Addy maxed out on all the walking, but all the hiking was worth it. The falls are absolutely beautiful.

Silver Falls was originally pegged to be a national park in the 30s, and I can definitely see why. We'd definitely go back.

I can see why, too! And you probably already know this, but your girls are the cutest girls, ever. Oh my goodness, they are just darling!

We'll definitely have to check it out now...you guys go to awesome places. Per your blog post, we just went to Hug Point State park this past Saturday and we loved it. We'll have to do a play date soon now that we're finally here.
