Camping Trip

We went camping over the weekend with our friends the Eagar's the Halterman's. It was so nice to get the heck out of the valley and up into the cool mountain air. The boys had a blast! It was M's first trip, and E's first trip with friends invovled. They both had an amazing time. It was E's fantasy come true, being able to play with kids all day long -- from the moment he woke up until the second he went to sleep. And M loved playing in the dirt and following the big kids around, of course consumption of dirt was a huge priority for him and unfortunately most of my pictures don't do the dirt goatee any justice.

I had fun visiting with Deirdre and Kendra and was so glad to be amongst trees. And aside from the mosquitoes, it was a better than average camping trip. I hope that they had as much fun as we did and will be willing to go back with us sometime.

Here are the pics:

Here is E in the hamock

M eating something random off the ground
E took this picture of his friend Jack
Poor Gavin was eaten alive by the mosquitoes, the white on his forhead is Calamine lotion
This is the fire pit that the kids built, and there are two paths leading up to it. Quite the engineering feat

Awww... That looks like so much fun. Mosquitoes kinda ruin the moment, though, huh? Glad you got to get away.
