First camping trip of the year – 2013

This last weekend we took our first camping trip of the year. It was my birthday and Michelle planned a weekend away in Ashland Oregon. The weather was beautiful for this time of year, we had 88 degree temps. We stayed at Glenyan RV and campsite just outside of Ashland, which was a very nice place with a little stream running through the park. I love Ashland for all that it offers for both summer and winter activities. Mt Ashland ski resort is just a short 30 minute drive up the road, and then there is the Shakespeare festival, and all the great food. Great food being a relative term depending on your taste. We have been to Ashland several times but only eaten at one restaurant. I love the Black Sheep Pub, coming from England I enjoy the traditional pub atmosphere, food and drink.

On Saturday we drove up to the ski area just to look around. We have yet to ski there. In the afternoon we went to “My Fair Lady”. It was a fantastic performance. The kids did great during this 3 hour show. Tristan’s favorite part was “Eliza where are my slippers!”. Yep it was funny, guess you had to be there though. We ate and drank at the Black Sheep twice that day. On Sunday it was mother’s day, we had a slow start to the day packing up the trailer and taking a walk with Sadie. We checked out late so that we could go into town for a brunch. Yep you guessed it; we ate at the Black Sheep.

All in all I had a great birthday weekend tied in with mother’s day. The kids were fantastic and it left me looking forward to the next trip. This happens to be this upcoming weekend. Daddy Daughter camping weekend.
