Labor Day Weekend Camping with Friends

Wells State Park, Sturbridge, Massachusetts

After skipping 2020 because 2020, we made our annual camping-with-friends long weekend happen once again, this time in Central Mass. Despite the torturous traffic for Emily and Nathaniel on Saturday, and the bizarrely uneven campsites (some huge, some tiny; some steep, some grassy and flat; nearly all with odd rocks right where you'd want to pitch a tent) and the off and on rain all weekend, we had a fantastic time. Apple-picking and a chance to hang out with Suzi's family, in the state for the weekend to visit in-laws, were just bonuses. Next year the kids are doing all the cooking, we think. There are enough of them, and they're sure big enough.
