Camping on the Cape - Day 1

We got on the road for the Cape on Wednesday a little later than we had hoped. There was so much to pack in the van and we had a few stops to make before really heading off.

We hit a few bad traffic spots and had a few crying bouts, but we made it to Brewster safe and sound.

Before even setting foot on the campground we had to be sure Abigail set her feet in some sand. She did not stop talking about the beach on our trip down, she was really looking forward to this part of the trip.
We spent a good hour or so at Breakwater Beach.

The tide was low and we made our way out pretty far before Jonathan suggested we head back. The tide seemed to come back in at a good rate.

After collecting some shells, playing in the water, and building a sand castle, we headed to Shady Knoll campground.

Jonathan and I set up camp while Sarah watched in the pack 'n play and Abigail took attempts at running off whenever we weren't able to involve her in tent building steps. After setting everything up, Jonathan started a fire while the girls watched VeggieTales in the tent.
So, we thought we'd try our hand at camp food that went beyond hamburgers and hot dogs. We thought we'd try cooking in foil pouches. Tonight's dinner: BBQ chicken and potatoes, prepped and packed at home. It was really good!

We ended our day giving Abigail a s'more, putting the girls to bed, and having a few s'mores ourselves. All-in-all we had a great first day of camping.
