Pop Up Fall Rally

September 7-9, we took the camper back out to McKinney Campground on Lake Allatoona. We were joining a group of other pop up camper people.  There is a website/blog/portal that has been a good resource as we've been getting in to this camping habit. This is the same group we camped with our first time out of the driveway back in the Spring.  This Fall Rally had most of the same people plus a lot more!  It was a lot of fun.
They had the weekend really well organized including a scavenger hunt for the kids on Saturday morning.  Heidi and Rachel really got in to that - they wanted to keep looking for things!!! There was also a corn hole tournament for the adults and a pinata for the kids. And Saturday evening was a potluck dinner that was delicious, fun, and entertaining - complete with door prizes!

It did not take long for all the kids to start playing together. Our site was on a circle that was perfect for riding bikes and scooters - it turned in to a mini Grand Prix! At one point there were about 6 vehicles cruising around the circle.
The pinata not only contained candy, but toys too! Playing with their new army men.
This was our wildlife sighting for the weekend. She was right next to our campsite.
 And the girls enjoyed walking along the lake looking for shells and pretty rocks.

The weather was wonderful. It was a little warm on Friday night, but Saturday it rained a little (not enough to dampen any plans) and brought in the cool temperatures.  We woke up Sunday morning to wonderful Fall temperatures (thus, Emma is in her PJ's with a fleece jacket). However it did warm up enough for us to take a little swim in the lake before we broke camp. It was such a fun time!  We've got to find a way to get out there more.
