stylish camping

every year on the weekend after the last day of school a whole bunch of friends and our kids go camping. we have been doing it now for 7 years through rain or shine. we each have our own campsites but have a communal kitchen/ hangout site and everyone pitches in to make wonderful meals and then we swim, hike, knit, read, play games and relax for 4 days. after the last trip my friend celia thought that I should blog about it especially the strawberry shortcake i made. these are not the pics from our trip- our pics would involve a lot of muddy dogs and children. perhaps next year it will look more like this!!

or for those of you who prefer more "rustic" camping.....
