Camping at Jordan Lake

We decided to go camping on a short, overnight trip at a nearby campground.  After we set our campsite up, we went fishing at the lake off the shore.

At one point, Phoenix came running over to me, not quite crying, but almost.  He had gotten stung by a yellow jacket.  I told him to stop playing over where he had been.  He didn't listen.  After two more stings from yellow jackets, he stopped playing in that area.  Some people have to figure things out for themselves. 

Audrey crafted this horse out of the driftwood on the beach.  She is so creative, and she really does have an artist's eye.  She loved "riding" on it!

Check out the fish that I caught!  If I remember correctly, each one of us got to reel in a fish!  

As always, Travis got to do all of the dirty work.

We roasted hot dogs, ate s'mores, and started a fun family tradition of telling scary stories.  It was a fun, quick trip.  The next morning, just as we had finished packing up, it started raining.  It was a bit warm, a bit humid, and the bugs were so loud it was almost deafening...but all of that is to be expected in the NC summer.
