At the tippy-top of Two Bears Farm is a little hidden gem - our campsite.
It's a mile and a quarter up, steep old logging roads, into a solitary hidden world.
Cort and I did the hike together.
And Reid rode on Daddy's shoulders.
Would you look at how happy Pierce is? This is a kid that LOVES the woods. And I'm so proud of him for being able to make the hike all on his own - it truly is a strenous hike, albeit short. And yes, he's wearing pajamas. He insisted.
At the top, there are plenty of rocks to climb.
Benches for sitting.
Pine cones for examining:
Can you smell the fresh air yet?
We brought supplies for s'mores! I'm always on the lookout for unusual marshmallows like caramel or coconut. This year I found MONSTER marshmallows! The hugeness!
I wasn't quite sure how to go about eating this monstrocity of a s'more.
No worries, though, I managed.
And I shared, too!
So I had a brainstorm in the store that we could try to make s'mores from Peeps.
Oh dear. That's just wrong.
Say it ain't so!
I have to say...peeps, when roasted, develop a hard caramelized shell of sugar on the outside.
Oh boy is it good! If you didn't have a campfire handy, I'm sure you could try this under a broiler.
We may be forever s'more spoiled now.
Can you get Peeps year-round?
Pierce stayed up to camp for the night with his dad, and I carried BOTH twins simultaneously down the steep mountain in the dusk. My hips will be paying for this for days.
Do you have any special tips for making s'mores?
