Camping

While Dan was on his vacation and before Kember started school we decided that we would go camping since we hadn't been this year yet. A fact that was very distressing to Dan. We headed up to Moose Creek Reservoir (not too far away, but don't ask me where, I have no idea) with Beth and Jeremy and their little girl Maeli. It was loads of fun. Not too cold (but not too warm either). I must say, I didn't sleep all that well, but I am blaming the fact that I was at the time around 8 1/2 months pregnant. Dan gave me the cot to sleep on though. He and the kids slept on the blow up mattresses. Kember had a hard night until she slept with Dan in his sleeping bag. Then Dan had a hard night because Kember isn't really the "give you some room" type of sleeper and we definitely aren't used to her sleeping with us. Caden woke up way early in the morning and probably woke up all the other campers in the area as well. I tried to get him quickly, but it took a while for me to get off the cot. Sitting up is hard and I was tangled in my sleeping bag. Ahh well. Anyway...it was loads of fun, and I'd write more details, but since it was so long ago I don't remember any of them. Enjoy the pictures!
Kember and Caden both took turns blowing up the mattresses. Okay, Dan did all the work, but they pushed once or twice.
This is where we got our water. The kids thought it was the coolest thing and Caden kept wanting "more". You can see him doing the "more" sign.

Kember was helping daddy set up the tent. What a big helper she is!

So, I really don't know what's up with these funny faces, but he just started doing it, and I'm glad I got a picture of it.

Saturday morning when we woke up we went for a walk. The guys found sticks, the kids found sticks and everyone was very happy with their sticks. The kids played with them for quite a while after we got back to camp. I declined my turn with a stick since I was having to lug Caden along (he is a very curious boy and doesn't move very fast if he doesn't want to), but I waddled with the best of them!
I'm kind of sad Beth and I aren't in any of these pictures. I say kind of because we were camping and so I'm sure I didn't look wonderful, but sometimes it would be nice to prove I was actually at an event. Oh well.

I totally understand the not being in pictures thing. Too bad our husbands aren't more interesting in photography or preserving these moments. :)

Do you remember going camping with us when you were living with us during the summer in Minnesota? I'm sure my kids woke you up.

I love that face that Caden is making. Hilarious. He is such a dead-ringer for Dan.
