Friday Randomness 10-16-15

  • We went camping last weekend at Gifford Pinchot State Park in Pennsylvania (just south of Harrisburg).  It was a relatively short drive from the DC area (except for all the Friday rush hour traffic we hit), and we had a gorgeous lakefront campsite!  So relaxing and just nice to be outdoors!  We stay indoors much too often.



  • As soon as I get back from a trip, I always start planning another trip.  I can’t help myself, it’s a compulsion.  I was thinking about another beach camping trip next year, like our trip to Assateague last April.  But I was thinking that May might be a better month since it would be warmer.  Our beach camping at Assateague got pretty chilly at times!
  • I keep tinkering with different methods of organizing camping supplies, but haven’t found the right technique yet.  How do you organize your supplies?
  • Can you believe that the holidays are right around the corner?  We stopped by the Lego store at Potomac Mills Mall earlier this week and I was already eyeing up some Lego sets for my niece and nephew!  And maybe even a Duplo set for my 2-year-old niece.  I’m worried about keeping  my 2-year-old niece occupied when my family comes to visit for a few days around Thanksgiving, and I figure that Legos could keep her occupied for a few minutes?  One minute?
  • Speaking of Thanksgiving, it feels like the holidays are right around the corner!  Ken and I are hosting Thanksgiving this year again (like we did two years ago), and I’m already planning menus!
  • My sister and her family spent last weekend at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, TX.  That’s the second year in a row they’ve gone, and they all really love it.  There’s apparently a lot to do right on the property.  I might need to go visit that sometime soon!
  • Did you see this article about Koko the Gorilla and her new kittens?  Adorable overload!  Be sure to watch the YouTube video at the bottom of the article.  
  • I keep trudging through the 4th season of Prison Break, very, very slowly.  That show really jumped the shark after the second season.  I thought the season premiere of The Walking Dead last week was really intense.  Yikes!

Have a great weekend!
