This was our last day camping and geocaching in PA. It was an exciting day yet a rather sad one. It was the last day of our family vacation as well as the last real camping trip with the boys. We all can not wait for them to come back for some winter action!

Strawberry picking is so much fun!!! Bowman’s Orchard is where we went and we got to ride on a tractor to take us to the fields.
