Sunday afternoon we headed to the Mississippi River State Park in Marianna, Arkansas for a few nights of camping. Tucked in the middle of the St. Francois National Forest, the park offers tons of great hiking trails and a wonderful primitive camp site on Bear Creek Lake. Camping on a Sunday and Monday night was a great decision because we basically had the entire campground to ourselves. Our tent was park out on a peninsula like portion of the park and it was the most perfect spot to hang out. We fished, explored, cooked lots of yummy food and just enjoyed a few days of being unplugged. The days were warm, nights cool and the smell of Fall was in the air. Asher rolled in the dirt, built a hot wheel track around our campsite and I’m pretty sure his fingers are still sticky from all the marshmallows he ate. I hope that someday he’ll look back and have the best memories of the little mini adventuring trips we take him on… xo.
