our first family camping trip.
tent camping is the way to go! we all piled in one tent and everyone (5 years and under) slept longer than they do in their own beds!
pots make better hats than anything else.
always, ALWAYS take this man who is a camping pro. he's teaching these boys how to do it right.
if you stick out your tongue just right, you can climb to the top of the playground.
accomplishing the monkey bars makes grey smile really big.
squeezing daddy's face makes will laugh REALLY hard.
sticks are a boys best friend. entertainment for hours. i know what will top our christmas lists!
simply being together outside with nothing to do but be together made us all smile really big.
tackle mommy while she's down was another pastime.
three boys on a log. in the woods. doesn't get much cuter.
hot chocolate and s'mores will make it into every camping trip we take. the campfire was the place to be.
the perfect time to roast a perfect marshmallow.
licking your fingers till the sticky is all gone is much better than washing them.
snuggling up in our sleeping bags to keep the cold out, french press coffee by the fire, a family hike, and long night conversation were some of my personal favorites from the trip. i really enjoyed the simplicity of camping. and not having anything to do. time actually moved very slowly. it was fun to watch the boys play with sticks and hide and seek in the woods. to just be outside and right smack dab in the middle of creation.
it was a major success.
