The Simple Life....Camping with the Clendenins

A few weeks ago we met up with our favorite fellow honeymooners and went camping with Bart & Jenn near the Suwanee River. In true form, the weekend started out with some drama when Manny jumped out of the truck and immediately ran over our neighbor's site and engaged their dog in a fight UNDER their RV. And also in true form, Bart jumped right under the RV and yanked Manny out while I screamed at the top of my lungs. (If you recall, our last visit with the Clendenins involved a squirrel on the loose in our house.)

After the dog fight, J and I decided we should get settled in and put up our tent. We were quickly embarrassed by the size (or lack there of) our tent was in comparison to the Clendenins. Bart hit the nail on the head when he said it looked like their tent gave birth:

Their Tent

Our Tent

After we discovered there was a huge gash in our brand new air mattress and J went to Wal-Mart to get another, we finally settled down to some grilled hamburgers and veggies. I wouldn't really call our camping the "simple" life, because we definitely didn't go hungry. We had pancakes, french toast, sausage dogs.......

Saturday we went canoeing on the Suwanee River which was a blast. Even Manny buddy got to go on his first river trip. The water was so calm and we even stopped at a place that has a natural spring that used to be a resort 100 years ago. It even had it's own railroad and people would come to from all over to experience the "healing waters" of the spring. There was still some of the stone walls from the resort. It was really amazing. We even saw some "friendly" critters along the way....

The camping resort had a neat craft village and ice cream stand that we also hit up. Saturday night was a wildly competitive round of Phase 10 that was won by....I hate to even say this...Jeremie.

We had so much fun with Bart and Jenn-we feel like we have known them forever and are so excited about their new addition that is arriving in September! So the next get together will have one more in this picture...
