Camping: Water, Bees, and S'mores

This past weekend we went on a family camping trip (3 nights). Thought I'd share some pictures. Which I totally stole off my mom's FB page (thanks, mom!). One of these days I'll download the pics from my camera on to the computer. Probably. Maybe. Anyway, here are a few of my favs from last weekend.

Baby E was all "Heeeeeyyyyyyy!! I looooooove me some camping, y'all". Seriously he does. Mostly because there are lots of rocks to taste. With the kid, it was sticks. But baby E is all about the rocks.

We went on a cool hike up to a waterfall. I carried E all the way up and down. I think it was close to 3miles counting the trek back and forth to the car. The kid ran back and forth and all over the place. I bet he did at least 50% further than the adults.

My boy loved the waterfall. We were there 2-3 years ago, but of course he doesn't remember it. This year he was big enough and steady enough to climb around the rocks and water billygoat style with the "big" kids. He was in heaven. See that grin? It was plastered on his face til we headed back down the mountain.

Then there was pool time. Remember that time I freaked out, thinking my baby E hates water? Yeah, that was funny. He's on his way to being a surfer. I'm pretty sure.

I mean, he loved (!!!) the mountain stream we hung out in for the afternoon. I was thrilled about this because it's one of my favorite places on earth.  But, considering there were rocks, and rocks, and then a bazillion more rocks, how could he not love it?!

The kid also loves it there. And, again, he got to climb all over and romp about in the freezing cold water, so what's not to love?!

Then there was a play at the campground that night. And, I must say, I do believe I have about the cutest bumble bee ever. He cracked me up, too. (Also note how strange he looks without those 2 top teeth. Well, strange to me at least...)

The last evening ended with S'mores. And, really, I ask you - is there a better way to end a camping trip?

Today's Lesson: To quote myself on FB today, "Sometimes the dress that seemed perfectly appropriate while you were standing at your mirror at home, does not seem quite as appropriate when you are sitting down at work."
