In the little town of Duck Creek there is a big festival called Duck Creek days every year. We had heard about it before and were excited when some of our friends decided to go. We don't get very many chances to go camping so we jump on every chance we get especially with our good friends and all their kids. I knew Claire would have a blast. Everyone else went up a day before us but because I had to work we couldn't leave till Friday afternoon. We got up there kinda late and just ate dinner and went to bed. We had the perfect camp spot where everyone could park their trailers. I guess I can't really say that we were camping because we stayed in our friends trailer and that is as nice as our house. On Saturday morning we rode the four wheelers and took the razor into town. Duck Creek is seriously so cute! There are just a few little stores and restaurants and a gas station and the whole town is just lined with cute cabins. When we went back to camp we just made lunch and hung out. Claire had so much fun just wandering around and playing with all the kids. There were a couple little girls that were about 7 or 8 that just took Claire everywhere with them. They made Claire feel so special and cute. They even took her on little (very slow) four wheeler rides just around our camp site. I have never seen a bigger smile on Claire's face!
Later that day we went back to town to go to the Duck Days festival. I was surprised at how big it was. There were so many food and craft vendors and so many toys for the kids. It was pretty hot so we didn't stay too long. We let Claire go down the big inflatable slide a few times and we ended up buying her her very first watch. She was in love. We then ate a cute little pizza place and then headed back to camp. We didn't do much else the rest of the trip but just hang out and it was so nice. It was so nice to get out of the heat and just relax all weekend. I unfortunately didn't take very many pictures but I got a few good ones.
There were 2 dogs up there and Claire would not leave them alone!
Claire kept picking me flowers and making me bouquets the whole trip
The older girls braided Claire's hair and put flowers in it because she "wanted to look like Rapunzel"
On our way home it started to rain and view from Cedar Mountain was so pretty.
It was so fun to spend time with our friends and let Claire play with all the kids. I think we will have to make this trip an annual tradition!
