summer is coming to an end

i love the summer, and hate to see it end, but there is nothing like the feeling of fall. the air is starting to feel fall-like already and i am looking forward to the cooler days and nights, sweaters, pumpkins, leaves (except raking), upcoming trips, and my favorite-apple dumplings. i'm hoping we get to go camping this fall, something we don't get to do often enough. last year we went to hickory run state park and had a great time, despite the slightly crappy weather and too crowded-and-not-enough-trees campsite. if you haven't ever been there you should go. there is a boulder field that is amazing to see, pictures really don't do it justice. it is a huge field of boulders (16.5 sq acres) that were brought to the area about 20,000 years ago, during the last ice age.

oh and this is how we roll, beef stew cooked over the fire in a cast iron dutch oven. it was delicious. (oh and i had nothing to do with it, it was all d.a., chef extraordinaire)

moz loves camping too, or so we think he does. he's content anywhere, so maybe he doesn't. haha. unfortunately he recently hurt his "good" back leg so he's a full time limper now. vet appointment is saturday, wish us luck.
