First family camp trip!

We have been camping before, before having kids that is. So it's been a while since we camped! 

We thought it would be a great experience for the kids. I was a little hesitant at first but my husband reassured me that it would be fine!

And it was better than fine.

We had a wonderful time and perfect weather. I was impressed at how well the kids adapted. 

We went to a camp site just 1.5 hours away. We took the scenic route and the drive was so beautiful and peaceful. 

We arrived and set up camp right away! 

Little k was happy to help daddy. 

And baby M was loving the freedom of walking all over new territory. Ha! 

The camp site had the lake just a short walk away. I never camped at a place like this. How perfect. To walk to the water. 

The lake was clear, clean and peaceful.
We spent 2 full afternoons there, taking it all in! 

It was soo relaxing. The kids were so good too. Baby M even napped in my arms to the sound of the water. 

Mmm the Mr cooked all our yummy meals. We had Pichania, beef ribs, hotdogs, sausages and i made a pasta salad already prepared for our sides. 

We had tons of snacks, chips, nachos, candy, cookies, chocolate! 

Smores of course! 


Little k loved helping start the fire and make his own smores! He likes the marshmallows burnt just like I do. Ha! 

Sitting in the dark by the fire was really nice. One kid for each of us in our arms, sitting close and cuddled, telling stories and roasting marshmallows. Definitely a new family tradition for us. This family time was so special and a great experience for the kids. 

Little k was so curious. Always asking questions and helping out. He loved being outdoors and loved all the new things he was learning. 

The kids were soo excited to sleep in the tent. They would jump around and play with the flashlights. They both fell asleep fast once we cuddled them up with blankets. The nights were a bit chilly but we cuddled close! We all slept great! Surprisingly! We had a queen air 
mattress and lots of blankets! 

This morning we woke to some noise and when I looked up I saw baby M got to some snacks 
He cracks us up! 

For breakfast I brought my grill and a old coffee maker I had in the basement. Ohhh this was perfect! Hahaha 

The kids would play and explore as we cooked. 

We also brought a hammock.

Baby m would sing to himself as it rocked. 

I'm so glad we did this little camping  trip.  A perfect way to end the summer. We all got to be so close and the kids learned new things. The best part of camping is not looking at the clock... Just wake when you want, cook when you want, sleep when u want, play, relax whatever! When you want. I think that's what the kids loved most about it as well. 

Camping 2016!
