Guys – there is nothing like being away from technology for 24 hours. Seriously – it’s pretty amazing.
OK – I did have my phone with me, but reception was spotty at best, so I only checked once to see if I had an SOS call from Jen, and once to post this picture.
We stayed close to home for this one, camping just down the road at Fort Kearny. I am a little ashamed to say this is the first time I’ve been there! But it was wonderful. Seriously fantastic. Plenty of water to fish, a large swimming beach, and gorgeous trails that take you straight to the Platte river. My girls loved it. My sister’s kids loved it. Each year we will plan a new camping spot throughout Nebraska making this the start of a summer tradition.
There’s still plenty of warm weather to check it out! May I suggest bringing a crazy comfortable sleeping bag though? My back still hurts from sleeping on dirt. (I know. I’m a camping rookie. More details on that tomorrow!)
Here’s a few more scenes from the weekend. Hope yours was fantastic!
