Holiday celebration at Silver Falls State Park
Sunday, December 25, 2011
We visited Silver Falls State Park just a few weeks prior and thought at the time how much we’d enjoy sharing it with our kids. The campground is beautifully maintained and the little cabins seemed like a perfect way to sleep all four of us. $40.00 provides a nice cabin and a full trailer hook up. Site 24 is particularly private – not that it would have mattered since the park was virtually empty.
We arrived at 4 pm and set up the cabin and trailer with festive decorations. We brought along a little Christmas tree and the kids put colored lights inside the cabin. Todd also strung a set of lights on our Bambi 🙂 We were ready for some holiday fun! New cozy pajamas, a dinner of sausage and fondue, and peppermint hot chocolate rounded out the evening. The stars were spectacular under the clear December skies and provided a real treat as we sat around the campfire. Clear December nights are something we don’t see often in Oregon!
It was a peaceful and relaxing night, and I’m really glad that we were able to share it with our kids. Time goes fast, and as the years pass and our kids grow up, I’m really learning to cherish times the four of us spend together like this!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays……
