Fall is a special time up at BNW. The valley seems to come alive after the stifling heat of summer celebrating the cooler fall weather with apple festivals and county fairs. One more thing to celebrate:
Our Apex is here and on site! That’s Poppi’s trailer to the left behind our site. It’s so wonderful to be so close yet have your own space. One of the best things on our Apex is the dinette. Not only can it seat all five of us but it’s transverse, meaning it extends from one sidewall to the other sidewall. That means it’s over 7 feet long from head to toe and if you read my last post you’d know how much I like to straighten my legs while I sleep. I know it sounds picky, but your knees will thank you.
More fun in the leaves! Just something about a pile of leaves that kids love to jump in so much. Sarah and Ava had so much fun I didn’t even mind having to repile them.
Did you know BNW had a “singing rock?” Completely missed on their brochure and website.
Even Ryan enjoyed camping! He was born just a few weeks later, guess he couldn’t wait to get started!
Our favorite weekend at BNW is their Halloween weekend. This is held during Columbus Day Weekend each year and the kid’s have a ball! It’s now their first of two Halloween celebrations. Sites are decorated in spooky fashion, there’s a Halloween parade (pictured above), trick-or-treating, costume contest and even a haunted hayride! It’s also bittersweet though because it’s one of the last camping weekends left as the season ends on 10/31. If you’re like us and the kids are back in school and schedules busy, it may very well be your last camping weekend and you’ll find yourself taking down your decorations and winterizing your camper at the same time.
Tigers were the theme this year:
I just want to thank my father-in-law, Mario for all the beautiful pictures of this 2013 Season as they are solely from his camera. Maybe we’re too busy chasing after the kids but I’ll definitely strive to improve this during the upcoming 2016 season. Stay tuned for the summer of 2014, thanks for stopping by!
