I didn’t have my first taste of s’mores until I was 41. Despite a lifetime of camping and roasting marshmallows, it wasn’t until I had kids that I discovered the chocolate graham cracker concoction.
When my kids came downtsairs and saw Hot Wheels tracks on the table, they lost it. When I said we would take the tracks camping, their creativity exploded.

The absolutely most perfect place to spend a day is the beach. Aspen Beach at Gull Lake features a long shallow shoreline where kids can run and play.
