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.  

Have you been to this one?  

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!
