Family Camping Trip 2013

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to go camping with our good friends Ian and Crystal for a weekend. We were crazy to do it seeing as we had seven children 4 and under. But we just went for it and it was so much fun! We picked a camp ground that had things to do there so that we wouldn't have to go far with our kids and they wouldn't get bored. So there was a pool, a playground and even mini golf. The kids had fun and we enjoyed time together. This was our first time not camping with Joshua's parents who always remember everything for camping and this was Ian and Crystal's first time camping as a family. So it was an adventure but we were prepared!
They had a train that rode around the campground a couple times
We went on a beautiful hike close by at Otter Dam that had a nice little waterfall...notice Gideon's new poochie lip look
Toddlers playing mini golf is really dangerous.

How many trips across water does it take 4 parents to get 7 children? (New math word problem)
Chloe sleeping in my arms while we were walking around--so sweet!

  1. Wow, y'all were so brave! I'm glad you had a good time! It's so fun that your two families could go camping together! :-)

  2. Camping is difficult without children. I do not know how you all pulled it off without any lost babies, hospital visits (from kids falling into the fire or picking poison ivy), or millions of bug bites :) I was so impressed with your adventurous spirit that I had Sam read through the post too. Now we know it's possible to take little ones tent camping :)
