In Mid-June we went camping at Pawtuckaway State Park in New Hampshire with our friend and neighbors Dana and Rachel and the boys: Miles, Linus and Zack.
We usually go to Pawtuckaway in September a couple weeks after school starts. At that time it is less than half full and peaceful. It can also be a little cool for swimming (although that never stops Audrey). This was our first time in the middle of summer. We loved it.
We had camp sites across from each other and Dana and Rachel's was on the water. There's a great swimming spot there with some large boulders the kids can easily get out to. They love to perch on them and jump off.
The weather was ideal, with warm but comfortable temperatures. Not too many bugs. We got in lots of swimming, some canoeing and at one point the kids all disappeared for a while on an adventure of their own.
We'll definitely have to go back in high season next summer!
Oh, I almost forgot. At one point they gave the girls a few dollars so they could go to the camp store to buy candy. Audrey came back with crickets! And she ate them!
