Pitch The Tent

Last weekend marked our Annual Sibling Camping Trip and it was a huge success.  The boys were in outdoor heaven with swimming, boating, BB gun shooting, s'more making and everything else wonderful that comes with the great outdoors.  And Sutton enjoyed making her first appearance on the camping trip by sunning, sleeping in my arms and eating dinner by the fire.

We had awesome weather, which was a relief since it was supposed to storm pretty much the entire time, however the mosquitoes were out with a vengeance.  We all were eaten alive while laden with repellent   In fact I am still waking up in the middle of the night itching and the boys looked like they had chicken pox for 3 days.  But, hey that's what comes with camping!

Chris chose to enjoy one more year of the baby stage and lovingly escorted Sutton home for the night - what a sweet husband I have!  They met us at Bob Evan's the next morning for our traditional after camping meal of pancakes and hot chocolate.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Sutton's 1st boat ride, she really did enjoy it!

Shayden, Quinton and I tubing with Uncle Luke, Claire and June.

S'more Face.

The Hard Core Campers (you know the ones who stay overnight).

Headlamps ROCK.

On one final note, remember 2 years ago when I did this and really had wished I packed a bottle of wine so I could have slept better - well update on that front.  This year I did partake in wine and it didn't help a lick with the sleeping....just thought you should know.
