Camp Crazy

Well, we made it through our first camping trip with the kids. It was a lot of fun in many ways. There were a lot of firsts for the kids; first time sleeping in a tent, first smores, first cooking hot dogs over a fire, and so on. We went with friends of ours who have a little boy, Mikie, Tasha’s age and then a little girl, Kaitlyn, who is 9 months. We did a little exploring in the woods where we saw some awesome rock formations and had a great view of the lush trees and many more rock formations poking out of the treetops.

Everything was great…..except bedtime….let’s just say that our kids have never slept in the same room before and well, Kevin was so incredibly thrilled to have his big sis sleeping beside him that….he didn’t sleep! At least not until around midnight and then a fitful sleep for some hours until 6:30 or something. We’re still recovering! We’re planning on going camping one more time this summer at least, so we’ll have to get them used to sleeping together in order to actually feel human the next day.

Here are the photos from our weekend adventure:

All the running worked up an appetite and Kevin needed something to wash down all the dirt he was eating!
