Last week our social media outlets were a bit quieter than usual. My husband and I took our four youngest children on our first week long summer vacation in almost eight years!
A local campground is owned by a family that attends our church, and we were able to book a cabin for an entire week! An adorable rustic cabin, with a full bed and two double bunks made for our humble abode for seven days.
The campground, which is known in the area for its resort feel and plethora of kids' activities, was the perfect spot for our 8-, 5-, 3- and 1- year-olds. The kids enjoyed a week of old-fashioned fun swimming, fishing, playing on the playground, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, and eating dinner right off the fire every night.
It's nice every once in a while to get away from the everyday tasks of laundry, dishes, and screens to just enjoy some one-on-one time with your family. It worked out great even for mom and dad - who had a great week sitting around the campfire at night chatting and laughing instead of dueling laptops on the couch at night as we complete our daily tasks.
Great times were had by all!
If you're in the Southern Maine area, I highly recommend Flat Rock Bridge Campground in Lebanon, Maine. If you're interested in seeing more of our trip pics, just search on Facebook and Twitter using #cabinlife.
