081216 – 081416 Summer Camping Trip

Over the summer, Kyle invited me along to a handful of family BBQs, as well as his family camping trip. I personally think the family get-togethers are kind of cool since my extended family rarely meets up as much as we used to.

Back in August, Kyle and his extended family did a big camping trip at Lake Camanche. The only time I’ve ever gone camping was with Alpha Phi Omega, so this was the first time I went “real” camping without all the planned activities and games. I guess “real” camping is just hanging out, cooking, and eating. It was pretty chill!

We went kayaking, relaxed in hammocks before park patrol told us to take them down, and fished! It was my first time fishing. 🙂

During our last night at the campsite, a group of us hung around the campfire roasting marshmallows and watched for shooting stars. One of my favorite parts of the night, however, was spotting the space station with everyone. There was something quite beautiful about everyone’s excitement and interest at that very moment. ❤
