What a wonderful weekend we had camping together! I'm amazed at how many people don't like camping, and equally how many people think I am crazy for camping with such little children. It was absolutely fine, and our kids slept so late both mornings, that we joke that we may camp every Friday night just so we all can sleep in on Saturday mornings (all 3 kids slept until about 8 am - that's late for us)!
When we arrived at the campground on Friday night, it literally started pouring the moment we drove into our site. Yikes - my husband got everything set up quickly as I stayed under the trees with the kids, and we only got a little damp. Saturday morning we woke to beautiful sunshine, and we figured if the kids could sleep so great in the rain, than surely they would sleep even better after a busy day in the sunshine! And we were right. After a full day of watching mountain bike races and walking, we headed back to camp and ate spaghetti and garlic bread, and then enjoyed smores with our neighbor-campers, who had 2 young kids. It was a fun time. Here's some pictures of our adventures!

I was thankful I brought our middle son's favorite toy - a toy lawnmower. He is such a busy boy! He works even while on vacation!
