Spring Break 2018: North Carolina, Part 2

If you missed North Carolina, Part 1, you can catch up here.

On Friday morning, we played around the campsite and ate an early lunch. After lunch, we headed to Mike & Eric’s friends’ goat farm in Rougemont, North Carolina. Elodie Farms is a 1910s tobacco farm turned into a goat dairy farm by Ted and Sandra. They have around 40 mix breed goats (and a donkey!) on 17+ acres of pasture and make fresh goat cheese and crackers among other things!

We all had a blast walking around the farm and playing with the goats. They are such fun animals! There’s not much else to say about the goats, so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking:

After playing with the goats, we all headed back to the campground for our last night together. Some played cornhole and some went for a bike ride. We all ate dinner and ended the night relaxing around the campfire.

The next morning we packed up and said goodbye to Rolling View Campground. We left the campground around 9:30 am but didn’t make it to Caledonia State Park in Pennsylvania until 6:30 pm! We hit road closures for the interstate we were supposed to get on and traffic due to bridgework.

The campsites at Caledonia were pretty tight. We were very close to our neighbors and thankful that this was just an overnight stop. We kept the truck hooked up and didn’t take any of the outdoor stuff out. We made pizza on the grill and ate dinner inside. After dinner, we went for a walk to check out the playground in our loop. The boys were disappointed when they discovered it was only a swing set and two seesaws, but they played anyway.

The next morning, we woke up and the Easter Bunny had come! The boys were pretty confident the Easter Bunny would find us here as he found last year when we were camping on Easter. The boys opened their baskets and headed outside for their Easter egg hunt.

After our Easter excitement, we ate breakfast and then went for a hike to find the real playground. It was a nice hike and the boys enjoyed this playground much more.

After the playground, we cleaned up inside and hit the road to head home! Wynn and Judy left North Carolina that morning and caught up to us on the road. We stopped for lunch together at Cracker Barrel and then finally made it home.

And that wraps up our Spring Break 2018 camping trip! We had a great trip — from hiking in Shenandoah National Park and exploring Luray Caverns to riding on a pontoon boat, playing with goats and lots of family time.

Spring Break 2019 is already booked and it’s going to be MAGICAL! 🙂
