This weekend, we went camping! It was my first time, and it was a SUCCESS! We camped with another family from church and it was great to get to know them better. We "princess camped" in a trailer, and sleeping in the great outdoors on a bed is a real treat, I tell you what.
We went up to Starlight Mountain Theatre and watched their live performance of South Pacific on our first evening. We camped right there at Starlight afterward, enjoying Crouch, Idaho. The next morning, we woke up and made "baggy omelets" and headed out to Cascade to our next site.
We set up camp at Arrowhead RV Park which was an amazing campground right on the Payette River. They had bathrooms and showers, a giant fire pit, a totem pole carving station, and lots of activities for people who vacation there for the summer. We parked our trailer right on the Payette, and couldn't have had a better view. Daniel and I had just planned on staying the first night, but after seeing our spot for the second day, there was no way we were going to go home and miss it.
Saturday afternoon, we fished, swam in the Payette River, played with the most adorable pug puppy owned by the campers next to us, ate huge bowls of homemade chili, and relaxed the evening away. Daniel and I were up bright and early on Sunday morning to head back to Boise, and were greeted by quite a few deer on our drive home. It was a wonderful camping trip and I can't wait to go again soon.

We stopped by a flea market in Cascade, Idaho.
A good look for the brothers. These flea market finds were sure hard to pass up!

We may not have been in the rough-and-tough wilderness of Idaho, but my first camping trip was one for the memory books. A big thanks to the Rowe's and Coleman's for the awesome time!
