The inaugural camping trip of 2012 was a success. Since I’m having all sorts of troubles finding my ability to write complete and wordy blog posts, let’s take baby steps through a picture story, shall we?
Our little home for the next 3 days.
Typically, we drive up on Thursday, and home on Monday. Unfortunately for everybody involved, Audrey had hand, foot and mouth disease and had a 103º temperature earlier in the week. We had actually discussed cancelling the entire trip. On Thursday night, she bounced back and was her usual adorable self on Friday morning. So… we camped!
Audrey gets her hair all prettied up inside the camper.
Tyler and Grandpa used walkie-talkies all weekend. Tyler’s handle was “Little T” and Grandpa’s was “Big G”.
Audrey was her gorgeous self
The dogs played (Delilah, and my parents’ two dogs, Molly and Max) and got FILTHY!
Poor Audrey was VERY tired from all the playing…
Tyler and I caught a baby snapping turtle!
Audrey got dirty… she loved it and still managed to look beautiful!
Tyler got filthy! He loved it and looked like a raccoon.
Audrey got thirsty and had a nice, cold Coors Light.
Tyler and Grandpa Little T and Big G caught a 16” bass with a Spiderman fishing pole.
Did I mention that Audrey got filthy?
It was fun! An absolute blast. Unfortunately, Tyler caught Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease from Audrey and became very lethargic on the last day of camping, and was an absolute miserable mess for the next 5 days afterward.
But, it was all worth it! It seems that everybody in our family loves camping, so I think we need to plan a couple more outings this season!
