We camped for two days at a state park in western Maryland. Our campground was in the hills next to a clear lake.
It was nice being out of the hustle and bustle of the big cities for awhile. Midweek in September is a great time to camp, not only is the weather fantastic, but the parks are empty. There was just one other couple camping nearby.
We enjoyed a beautiful hike around the lake where the boys were inspired to build a lean-to shelter and Jovani got to catch some fish. The boys played on the playground nearby, we did some schoolwork, and just enjoyed the quiet.
