Euchre at 10,000 Feet

How to Play Euchre – Teaching A Michigan Tradition
It was the first commercial flight for our kids, and everyone did well. We even played a little Euchre to pass the 4 1/2 hours. Madeline thought the take off felt like riding a roller coaster. Southwest constantly served us free snacks and drinks; our two checked bags full of camping clothes and gear were free as well. On the way home we’ll choose seats away from the wings so we can see more of the United States below.
If you’ve never played Euchre, it’s a game many people in Michigan play when camping.  Want to try it?  Instructables.com had a great tutorial here:  http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Play-Euchre/

Fall Euchre Snack Mix and Festive Campsites

Are you looking for festive campout ideas?  I always start by looking around our house.

Fall Mantle
Fall Buffet

 

What can I borrow from the mantle or buffet to make my camper feel like home?

How about taking along Mr. Owl and setting some fall leaves around him on the table?

A couple of small ghosts set amongst gourds, or the ceramic pumpkin full of candy?

If you are looking for a crafty idea, maybe something to do with the kids, Frankenstein is easy to paint and adds a wonderful glow to the picnic table.  All you need is the correct size mason jar, or any jar you’d like to up-cycle, glue, two nuts that look like the correct size for “ears”, and a candle.  Super cute!

My Fall Euchre Mix looks festive and is loved by everyone (especially me, because many of the ingredients can be purchased at the Dollar Store).   It can be easily put together at the campground.  A perfect job for the kids!

Fall Euchre Mix
