been camping


Well, hello.

We're back, and although I'm tired - exhausted, actually - I thought I'd sit and savor the trip a little longer by looking through my images and chatting for a minute with you.

A few highlights:

*A deer, running through our campsite as we started setting up the tent. And then Cal telling us it was a doe.
*Forgetting the s'more ingredients, except for the marshmallows, and everyone (except me) being cheerful about just roasting and eating the marshmallows.
*Sitting around the campfire and having Abbott say, 'I wish this could last forever'.
*Falling asleep to Alexi reading aloud from Greatest Hockey Stories Ever Told.
*Spying a chipmunk cleaning out a container I used to make pancake batter.
*Listening to 'Here Comes the Sun' from another campsite this morning.

I hope your week is off to a good start.

Summer isn't over until you get a good camping trip in. So glad you had a good time! And funny about the s'mores--I did that on our last trip too!

So much fun!

Your boys are really stretching out all of the sudden. Frightening how quickly they grow!
