We decided it was about time to take the family camping. I mean it has been almost 4 years since we received our tent. Oops! We wanted to ease back into camping, so we headed up to Travis AFB to the base camp site. We thought we would be camping near the base but it turned more into a tenting experience. Remember when I said that it's often cool, foggy and gray where we live? Well at the camp site it was well into the 100's and not a shade tree around our site! We ended up doing some site seeing, enjoying the base thrift store, walking around the BX and Commissary, watching Winnie the Pooh at the base theater and even some garage sales. We enjoyed the camp life of smores and sleeping on the floor. :)

|They even got to sit in some!|
|Tenting is tough!|
|There were Jack rabbits all over the camp site. |
He's the little brown spot in the middle of the picture.

to go there a lot when we lived in MD.
