Family Camping Trip 2017

 This past week we went on a camping trip with my family. It was our first time camping since the girls have been born. They loved it! Sleeping was a bit of a challenge but I went into it with very low expectations, so they did better than I thought. They wouldn't go to sleep until 10 or 11 but once they were asleep they pretty much slept all night and didn't get up too terribly early. They were so tired that they napped easily most days. By the last day they were both little sleep deprived wrecks but other than that they had fun ha.

They loved playing around the campground and got sooooo dirty. 

                                                      A nice picture taken by Esther. :)

The girls loved spending time with their grandparents and aunts and uncles. 

The many faces of Adele. 

I'm not sure what's going on in this picture. 😂 Esther really wanted to be Moana so we had to get creative with the dress up. 

E and A playing with "magic sand".  We brought a few activities and toys but in hindsight we should have brought more because they ran through them pretty quickly. And we needed them entertained while the adults played board games. :)

Sweet little Adele during one of her rare naps in the tent. Don't be deceived by the pack n play in the back, Adele refused to sleep in it. 

Preparing for the rainstorm. 

There was a little pond with canoes at the campground. Esther looooved them and I had fun in them too. It was a bit of a trust exercise because she was so afraid they would tip at first, but once we got out on the water she had a great time pretending to be Moana. And singing "Row Your Boat". 

A beautiful view. 

We made a little side trip down to my parents so everyone could shower and the others in our group could go to the lake. We had to make a stop at Walmart to replace Adele's favorite toy, Mimi, that got lost on the way down. Luckily Cedar City is diverse. ;)

A camping bath for both babies. 

When we told Adele it was time to get out ha. #dramatic

Roasting "Marfmewwows"

S more's for breakfast. 

Playing in the stream.

More canoe pics, with Ruby the dog. 

We had a fun time and I'm glad we have a long weekend to recover. Maybe now I will be braver and take them camping more than once every 3 years. :)
