camping

this was our very first family camping trip.
we all had a great time and dave is already trying to find another weekend to go before its too cold out.
if only the calendar wasnt already so full.
after crossing the swing bridge.
lilly was nervous at first (for good reason) but she ended up going back a 2nd time.
friday's dinner.
yum.
out in the river.
a gorgeous sight during our hayride.
5 mile canoe trip.
the kids didn't love it.
but they didn't whine the entire time either.
fun sculpture in the middle of the river.
message in a (mike's hard lemonade) bottle.
with a real message.
from someone who lives in bowling green. 
small world.
cohen's little potty corner.
used a few times when a bike ride to the nicer potty was going to take too long.
cohen wouldnt even step near the 'hole in the ground' potty a few sites down.
(and i do not blame him)
off schedule + hot + tired = falling asleep on a bike ride
saturday's dinner.
foil dinners.
my favorite.
(this may get a post of it's own someday...)
twine anklet made at the art center by mommy.
lilly made a necklace.
meant to get a pic of the kids with the tent.
oh well.
what is camping without smore's?
daddy caught some fish.
this one is a perch if i remember correctly.
and lilly's favorite part.
becoming instant friends with our campsite neighbor, Rachel :)
she's 6 too.  they loved hanging out all weekend.
and don't forget Mindy :)
making a candle.
this is what i get when i ask cohen to point to the river.
i giggle and he asks me to take another picure of him pointing.
this is how we all felt coming home.
ready for bed.
and a good shower.

I love how kids cross their legs when they fall asleep in the car. Mine do that too.
Looks like you had a very fun trip. :) Aside from the sleeping in the tent thing, I'd love it too! :) LOVE the potty corner.

Did you tip over in the canoe? Seriously, I do that every time. But maybe it is just me and my poor balancing skills!
