Our First Trip In The Camper

Our First Trip In The Camper

This past weekend, the Cummins family took off for King’s Mountain, SC.

It was our first real trip in our new-to-us camper, and it rocked.

We loved the experience, made a campground friend, and got to explore.

Here are some photos of things we did, places we saw, and pretty things along the way.

We browsed a little gift shop in an art center and found some creative things!

While camping, we visited King’s Mountain National Military Park.

The park had some outdoor tents set up for colonial activities. One of the activities was dressing up. Anna participated!

We pulled over by the side of the road to take this picture, then jogged across the street to take the picture below.

Dad thought the campsite looked so great, he snapped some photos before we packed up.

What do you think of our Cummins Diesel? We like it quite a bit. Must be the name.

We kids loved biking around the campground.

Dad thinks we should write “Happy Camper” with a smiley face across our travel trailer. In this photo, there are two happy campers!

Well, there you have it, folks.

Our first trip in our “home away from home.”

We have our own little Rocinante.

Watch out, America. The Cummins family is on the loose. 😉
