Way back in January, I gave the Ringing Rocks Family Campground a call. Mr. Hero and I had spent our anniversary in Frenchtown, NJ last year and we really fell in love with the place (coincidentally, this little town is also home to Elizabeth Gilbert and her husband's store, Two Buttons...if you are a fan of the book and movie, Eat, Pray, Love). But besides the Elizabeth Gilbert draw, Frenchtown is a quiet little artist town dating thirty years or so before the American Revolution. Once I saw the Delaware River and the bike path running right alongside it, I knew this would be an amazing place to take the kids and Mr. Hero for a small vacation. And boy was I right on this one.
Here are some of the pics from our trip:
|our cabin- costing us $109 for 3 nights|
|biking the path along the Delaware|
we ended up biking 16 miles in 3 1/2 hours
Mr. Hero, Mr. Tailor and Mr. Reporter all took
turns giving Mr. Ninja a lift whenever he pooped
|crossing the Delaware into Lumberville, PA for lunch. We|
ate at the Lumberville General Store, where we had cold
cuts, soda sold to us in glass bottles, "Joe's" potato
chips, and Juicy Fruit gum- which was a lifesaver in getting Mr. Ninja and
Mr. Cook back to camp.

For Memorial Day, we wanted to learn more about the
importance of Washington's crossing of the Delaware.
(OK... truth be known... I'm a homeschooling mom and
needed to get a field trip in for the boys' portfolios).

He's now $25 richer!
How about you? Where do you like to escape for your summer fun? I'd love to know.
