camping, oh yeah!

At times we exhaust ourselves searching  out entertainment for our kids, leap pads, iPads, plays, movies, museums, play sets, the list could go on forever. None of these are bad but most of the time our kids just want to run, get muddy, and have our undivided attention.
(yes I realize my child is wearing soccer socks, he was cold & we had to improvise, I am mother of they year who never checks the weather)
This past weekend our kids entertained themselves and loved every minute. The time spent packing, setting up and tearing down campsites was worth every dirty face smiled we saw along the way and boy did we see a lot of dirty faces.

Who knew they made triple decker air mattresses?

Our kids got along so well and ran hours on end, were filthy,muddy, and stinky.
 Since they didn't  have mounds of toys or electronic devices to fight over they joined forces & conquered the hills, mud puddles, sand & rocks, and the boogy & goat man that they swore were in the woods.

As for the adults we worked very hard to collect a new "bonfire scent". Which can only be attained by positioning your quilt draped body by the fire for hours on end and enjoying great conversations.
I am pretty sure this is the closest Katy ever got to a tent the entire weekend. 

 Wendy was out of town so Brandon was unsupervised.

 Believe it or not the guys stayed up talking around the campfire long after the girls headed to the tents. 

After this weekend camping moved a lot closer to the top of my list. But not just camping, camping with great friends and families.
We will have to start our countdown over for our next camping adventure.
