ok…. i will have to wait and post some pics for you to get the full measure of fun we had camping.

we have just returned from 3 days, 2 nights of TENT camping with 4 adults and 6 kids.  The youngest of the kiddies being 4 and 3!  (they did awesome by the way…… may have had the least complaints from them… aside from my 4 year old daughters RIDICULOUS drama queen moments!)

we hiked, ate, tried to sleep, played skip-bo, ate, went to the park, fished, ate, ate and ate!  🙂 

i’ll get some pictures up as soon as i get all of the laundry done from the trip…. hmmmm….

oh goodness, kids say the……
