The Mother of two Dirt Clods

Since the move to our new home interrupted our summer camping plans, we decided to squeeze a camping trip out of the rapidly disappearing summer.  We loaded up the trailer with everything we own and went off to “rough it” in the wilderness!  My mom and dad went with us which made taking care of the boys so much easier.

The boys enjoyed all of the camping rites of passage: bug bites, eating watermelon, being covered with dirt from dawn to dusk, sunscreen, tan lines, swimming in the lake, eating B-B-Q… did I mention being covered with dirt?

Eating watermelon in their diapers. What a couple of hill-billy babies!

Nap time and camping do not go together!  He would occasionally just droop out of sheer exhaustion.
My mom brought him water balloons to play with. It’s all fun and games until one pops on you!
The lake was beautiful and the water felt very nice.
He is getting more and more adventurous in the water.  I’m pleased but it makes me a little nervous.
I honestly think he could live the rest of his life camping!  I don’t think he would even miss his home.

No camping trip would be complete without a little friendly card game and some late night snacking.  It was way past their bedtime but they wouldn’t be happy until they could join in the fun.
