A couple of weeks ago, we packed up and went camping. It was so fun! It rained off and on the first afternoon, which added to the fun (and the post-camping laundry) and kept things cool for the rest of the trip. It was a much needed family excursion before the kids and I headed off to Colorado for a two week visit and Tory began his horrible summer work schedule.
Eating Cup O' Noodles in the rain shortly after arriving.
Searching for firewood. And Gavin is still working on those Noodles.
What boy can resist a puddle?
Mr. Hayden...helping with the fire (that we started with Magnesium and flint and steel, because we forgot the matches...)
Our wild turkey friend that wandered into our campsite and hung out all day with us. She kept the kids entertained for awhile.
Benson, trying to start something on fire, I am sure.
Mommy and Bella.
The second day, we played in the stream that ran through our camp and the river it flowed into. So much fun!
Gavin, relaxing by the river.
Bella...with sleeping bag hair. I love it!
Tory taking Gavin across the river and giving him loves.
Two of my Cute boys. Just before we got into a water fight. Tory mostly used Gavin as a shield against my attacks. Totally cheating.
It's hard to tell, but Hayden is crazy about Gavin.
It was the best weekend. And in spite of all the preparation and cleanup, I can't wait to go again in a couple of weeks!
