Fresh Air.

A couple of weekends ago, we made our way outside of the city to a Retreat Center in New Hampshire for a little outdoor fun. We stayed in a little lodge with beds and a bathroom, and there was a little kitchenette there so, it wasn't necessarily camping but, we were outdoors a lot.
The first night, we decided to cook our dinner over a fire.
Everything tastes better when cooked over an open fire.
Trader Joe's Nitrate Free Hot Dogs are the best!!
Oh, and we had S'mores for dessert, of course!
I love how their feet are propped up on the same rock in this picture. Like Father, like son.
Here's my little hiker with her walking stick.
We took a couple of nature walks. We even saw a wetland, which
was great for an impromptu science lesson taught by my husband.
I took several pictures of them all walking with their sticks,
this one is my favorite!

We had such a fun time. It was really nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and be in the peace and quiet for a couple of days.
It was like a breath of fresh air...literally. :)
