Camping Trip

Last year after our first ever family vacation (just the 6 of us) we decided it needed to be a yearly tradition.  So, this year we found a really nice camp grounds just 45 minutes from us.  And when I say "camping", I mean CAMPING - tent, no water/electricity at our site, camping.  Yeah, most people thought we were crazy but we had such a great time.  We went on Sunday and came home on Wednesday.  The van was PACKED but we fit it all into one vehicle and didn't forget anything major.  We had perfect weather both day and night.  We slept in the tent, we had picnics every day, we went swimming, we jumped on the big jumping pillow, did arts and crafts, went on the water slides, used the banana bikes and big bikes, went for walks, went mini-golfing, went for train rides and tractor/hay rides and we went fishing (Gavin caught a nice catfish and Carley caught a nice Croppy and everyone caughts TONS of little fish - like they could have almost been the bait they were so little, but it was so much fun to watch them having fun catching so many fish and Kyra and Gavin both bait the hooks and take the fish off - something Jed is thankful for since I am NO help in the fishing area - any aspect of it). 


 Kids had to have socks on while doing the jumping pillow, which is surrounded by tons of sand - so needless to say, we went through a LOT of socks!
 Craft projects - they were in heaven, crafts every day at 11:00!

 Our turtle friend visited us every day when we were fishing.

 Kyra "cuddling" the worms we were using for bait?!
