Our Latest Camping Trip to David Crockett State Park



David Crockett State Part,

Lawrenceburg, Tennessee

After 2 1/2 years of praying, God finally blessed us with a camper. Not just any camper, but the exact camper we were praying for. We love to be together as a family, we love the outdoors, and we love to camp. We can still enjoy the great outdoors, but with the conveniences as well.
So, we went camping last weekend for the second time in our new camper. We had a great time. Our camping neighbors were Christian and very kind folks. I have heard many people talk about campers being the nicest people in the world. Well, that has proven to be true.
We had a few problems since we are new to the camper part of camping. Our neighbors were so helpful (from 25 years of camping.)



Here we are having problems figuring out how to work the awning.



Here is our little fire bug.



CJ and Nick playing UNO with our camping neighbors.


CJ counting the leaves on the new flower she found.

Nick picked flowers for me on the trail walk. He even pushed the limits to lean to the edge of the water to get that special one (while Daddy cautiously watched on.)


CJ carving her name in the tree.



Nick looking at the small waterfall.

This is an unusual plant we found while walking on a trail.

Saturday night, the family sat by the campfire and Daddy read scriptures to us. Luckily we had our own church service then, because we missed church the next morning. :)

Blessings,

Amanda Gowan

Oh my goodness! Those pictures bring back alot of memories. I grew up in Summertown and my first husband and I lived in Lawrenceburg. We used to spend so much time at that park!
