Labor Day Camping


For Labor Day we went camping with our good friends Brit & Summer & most of Brit's family. We had a great time & Brit's family was awesome, making us feel totally welcome & like we were one of them. My parents were gracious enough to let us take their home on wheels, and can I just say how awesome it was to not have to sleep in a tent for 4 nights! Not that I wouldn't have, just saying!

Despite the overall wonderful weekend, the trip got off to a rough start. We left a couple hours later than planned, I got a flat tire & we had to wait almost half an hour for the boys to catch up to us & fix it, and then the dually that Jeremiah was pulling the travel trailer with overheated on the dirt road on about the 2nd of 10 miles to the campsite! Brit drove Summer, me, the kids & the trailer w/the 4-wheelers & dirt bikes to the campsite, which we rolled into a little after 12:30am! Around 1:00am he took off on one of the quads down the mountain to get Jeremiah, and Summer & I finished getting the kids into temporary beds. Around 2:30 Brit got back into camp, and about 40 minutes later the trailer was in camp & parked. We had to move a few things around to get the slide-out out & get the beds made, so we finally got into bed around 4am!

The rest of the weekend was much more fun than the first night! Here are some highlights:

OMG! So the picture of Jack sitting by himself in the camo jacket is cute. And in the pic where Ellie and Jack are on the power wheels together is super adorable. If Els was a little older she and Jack could look like twins!
