Our Labor Day Camping Trip

Our family LOVES to camp!  Yes, even when momma is struggling through morning sickness...I was honestly hoping the fresh air would help...I think it did!

Last time we went camping (see link) I was 7 months pregnant with Liberty...(and now look at her!)

I think I've camped while pregnant with each of our kiddos...
I even remember camping when I was 7 months pregnant with this big guy...

So here we are again in our favorite camping spot...

Brats and hotdogs for dinner...


Lots of playing in the dirt and sand...

















And finally time to sleep...

The nice thing about camping is that everyone works and plays so hard that bedtime is welcomed by all!

GOOD MORNING CAMPERS!!!

Wanna guess who our morning person is?


Our sweet Daddy cooked us eggs, bacon and sausage for breakfast...

We enjoyed every bite of the yummy breakfast!


Packing up is always a little sad...

This time Liberty wanted to help put the tent away...
We had such a fun time and can't wait to add one more baby to our 3 room tent next year...
and chances are, I'll be pregnant again, so as to not break tradition, of course!!! :)

I've just never been brave enough to go camping. Maybe I will try it now. We too, have 3 boys and a girl. I'm sure they would all enjoy it.

That looks like SO much fun!!! Unfortunately my kids won't sleep ANYWHERE unless it is in their beds in THEIR rooms! :( They are super sensitive about that for some reason, so I guess we'll have to hold off for now. Where were you all at? It looks beautiful!!!

The memory of you on the 'slippery rock' is quite vivid! Fun times! I remember being pregnant with Micah and thinking 'how did Grace camp when she was pregnant with Trusten...sleeping on the ground is the last thing I want to do!'

Grace,

I am so glad you all had such a wonderful time!! It looks like a lot of fun. I only camped while pregnant with my first one, it was great!

I enjoy camping but it's been so long since I've 'even done it! At least I got to imagine what it would be like thru your pictures.

In the middle of the night for the bathroom call of nature, what do you do? I was always unwilling to do it since I didn't want to squat in the pitch black in the woods pregnantly (is that a word?). I think we have decided that we are going to give it a whirl next year with our four superstars.
