This was the first “real” camping expedition we took our new camper on.
The 4th of July we “camped” in Dan’s backyard, but that hardly counted I say.
Backing up to last fall, we bought a camper that needed a “little bit” of work. Little bit being the key to a good deal, a small winter project and you know, all those good things. Well, “little bit” became hugehugehuge and after consuming Eric for all of Feb, March, April and half of May, I named the camper “The Girlfriend.” He gutted the entire inside and rebuilt it. It was a major project but all of his hard work paid off and we now go camping in luxury. Well, almost, we still might be classed as slight rednecks, but it’s an upgrade for us. I don’t even have a picture of the girlfriend, but she went along for sure.
The weather was beautiful, warm days, cool nights, lovely camping weather. You actually felt like sitting by the fire as opposed to the weather right now.
Mr D was loving it too. Outside, hotdogs and ketchup, swimming, sticks, stones, dirt, bikes to ride. A boy’s life!
He is way over confident at the pool! He has no fear whatsoever. Just jumps right off the side.
Not sure what to do with him. Usually when we go to the pool it’s just the kids and I and there in no rest with him. It was good to have his Dad along to help chase and watch him all the time.
The girls put Tim to work right away…
No rest for him when they are around.
This campground had a hot tub off to the side of the pool. It really felt good to sit in there and watch someone else entertain your kids. 🙂
I have a really good picture of Mr D and I in the hot but the old man in the background with white wrinkly skin and a farmers tan rather kills the mood so I won’t post it. 🙂
After dark we played with our cameras and lights. 🙂 Girls got a kick out of this.
Thankfully this little road was rarely used and he could putter up and down it with his stick and trike.
I think I’m finally getting used to a boy. You can not cloth them and expect them to stay clean. Once they are dirty, don’t change them, just let them be happy and dirty. He was!
We went a little 2 hr canoeing trip on Sat.
To say the river was loaded would be a gross understatement.
We spent most of the time maneuvering around tubes, canoes, floats, and you name it.
The girls had never been canoeing before so this was a huge deal to them. Tim, of course threatened to tip them all the time and scared them by slapping his paddle on the water.
Once again, the boy and water go hand in hand. He would have jumped out given a half a chance.
The campground had a free putt putt course so putt away kids!
Dakota was serious about it. If you got in the way, not his fault, he was hitting that ball.
And my favorite picture of the weekend.
Mr D and his beloved “nummies.”
Just realized I didn’t put a picture of on Sarita and her growing belly… oh well, I’d say she won’t mind. 🙂
Have a good weekend.
