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!

End of summer fun!

Ok so my titles these days are all the same. My blog is my own little snap of all the fun things we do as a family. I love being able to search a year or month and read up a little summary of fun times. So my titles, meh, not a big deal. 

Now back to summer fun!

Birthday fun! August is full of birthdays! 

Friday we had a breakfast date for my sisters birthday! 

The kids had a blast! They all ordered the same thing with a chocolate milk! 

Mmm going for breakfast is one of my favorite things. I think us moms had at least 4 cups of coffee that morn. Ha!
Mmm eggs, bacon, pancakes. Sooo good! 

Then we headed to the zoo

Hhaha ok so we were a little terrified. These animals were chasing us for food! 

And boy was It was a hot day! 

After the zoo we went home to relax then got ready to go to the drive in theatre! 

We love the drive in!

We changed the kids into their pj's. We brought pillows and blankets and got comfy! 

The kids were so cute, eating their snacks and chatting away.

Then Saturday was birthday party number 2 for my niece! 

Little k isn't a fan of face painting, my older niece convinced him to get one on his hand. He was cool with that! 

I love this pic. He was Sooo happy that he got ghost busters! 
Little Mikey loved the dairy free cupcake his Tia got him. Nomnomnom 

The fun didn't end there! 

We had another birthday party Sunday. 

We were exhausted from the weekend! Saturday nights party had us home at 3am! 

The weather has been great. So daily bike rides are a must! 

This week is all about back to school prep! 

Baby M will be off to daycare in a month too! So I'm getting all his things ready too! 

These little guys are growing up so fast! 
These Darth Vader pj's with a cape just are too too cute! I sent my husband to the Disney store last week to pick up some pj's and of course he picked Star Wars pj's!

Summer fun!

 Summer has been fun and full of family events! 2 weeks until school begins and we have many more fun things to do with the kiddies! 

My adorable niece turned 6 years old. Our August is full of birthday fun! 

Last week we were a little down in the household. The kids had hand foot and mouth virus. It was so painful for baby M 
Thank goodness it they got over it quickly! 

My cousin got married last weekend. She had a Henna Party and her ceremony and party. 

It was my first time attending a henna party. The evening was beautiful. 

I was honored to do a reading at their ceremony. 
I wore a simple black Calvin Klein black dress with my gold tip MK shoes and purse. I curled my own hair with the curlpro! Ha! 

The reception was so much fun, with amazing family! 

I had this dress tucked in my closet for about 3 years! Tags and all! It fit perfectly and was perfect for the event! 

The kids looked adorable!!

The next day we headed to the race track. Our new family tradition. The kids love it and the husband and I are getting competitive ha! 

We don't want the summer to end! 

Yesterday was the last day of soccer for the season as well!

We went for ice cream afterwards to celebrate! 


Have a great weekend friends!
