It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that being in the great outdoors and spending quality time with your family & friends is going to make you happier. In my opinion, camping can be good for the soul too…

This past weekend we drove up north {again} to the gorgeous Redwoods in Mendocino County. It was a family affair with 24 family members in tow. We camped out at Richardson’s Grove Park {the campsite itself wasn’t my favorite, it lacked a lake and was too close to the highway}, but being immersed in those magnificent Redwood trees made the trip worth it.

Our itinerary was simple: get up early, make a hot, steaming breakfast, go for a long walk and attempt a swim in the river. For a change, it was refreshing to be disconnected from technology and instead we relied on senseless humor, games {pssst check out Apples to Apples!} and perfected the most delicious s’mores a kid {or adult} could ask for.

So grab your tent, and get away for a long weekend – just tell your boss it’s doctor’s orders.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures. Ole!
