Our Family Camping Trip!!!

We are very blessed to live within 40 minutes of two really nice State Parks.  So we decided to take our first camping trip this weekend.

It was a GREAT trip!

DAY ONE:

While I was setting up our temporary "home"...SJ was curious to see what I was doing :)


First thing, T-Man found a toad he named "Beans"

After setting up camp, we went
HIKING!!!
...through the "Ancient Trees" of Cross Timbers...



There were some parts of the trail that were flooded...

Taking "a little rest"

SJ had it easy!

The boys liked reading the signs




We came to a point where our path was flooded, so we had to make our own path...

It was kinda scary, I'll admit!

But WE DID IT!

The boys were EXHAUSTED, but we made it!

We got back to camp and started getting ready for dinner

Enjoying the peace and quiet!

T-Man loves his new toad!

Precious Boo

SJ went to bed before the sun even went down! He was tired!

Ryan making sticks for marshmallows...yummy smores!

The boys loved playing in the dark!





We stayed up playing hide and seek in the dark
And once it was bed-time, they went to sleep in about 5 seconds once we got into the tent!

DAY TWO:

And sweet little SJ did SO good!

This playground was right by our tent site, so the boys spent lots of time here too!



We had a blast! These were some of our BEST family memories yet!!!

Your little guys just melt my heart! I WANT TO LIVE CLOSER TO YOU!!! I loved the video with the birds chirping and sweet Samuel waking up. I can't wait to get some camping in this summer. In fact we are trying to think about what we want to do for our anniversary, so maybe I will suggest that. Thanks for the pictures of your handsome little men ( and Bean too!).
