Part of the reason we chose one of stops to be Lake Anna State Park in Virginia was because it is just under an hour from where we used to live. The park itself is nice with some trails and a lake beach, but we also had the opportunity to visit our former home and see some friends.
Everything tastes better when you're camping! Pancakes for breakfast.
We visited Woodberry Forest and the big girls played dress up with Sophia.
Aurora was in the kitchen looking for snacks.
That afternoon, we went to the Woodberry Forest pool and met some more friends. Then Sophia came back to camp with us to spend the night.
"Don't go too deep!" said. Their definition is different that mine.

We had to make sure Sophia got the whole camping experience, which of course includes making s'mores.

Camping is for the dogs!
The next day, Sophia's family came out to Lake Anna and we spent the afternoon at the beach and had a picnic dinner together.
Events included pole climbing. Sierra was an expert.
Jason had lots of help building a fire.
The kids throwing "poppers" at the ground.
We love this family!
