The Big Camping Trip!
We had such a great time on our camping trip to Gamble Rogers State Park in Flagler Beach, FL. We got to stay for 8 whole days and enjoy the beach with my mom and dad and sisters. It was wonderful! Flagler Beach is one of my favorite places in the whole world...it is a charming little beach village full of character. Gamble Rogers is right on the beach. The kids did great...they slept in a tent for over a week without any complaints...they are such happy little campers! We spent most of our time on the beach, but while we were there we also made a trip to St. Augustine to eat at our favorite shrimp joint, O'Steens, made a trip to Ponce Inlet to see the lighthouse (Clifford, the Big Red Lighthouse, as Avery named it), and made several trips to the "red box" to rent fun kids movies to watch in the tent after dark. It was a week full of family fun!
