Going Home Day, 11-25-15

We were actually slow getting up this day.  Watched some TV, made a last small fire, Cayden rode his bike, we were lazy, just soaking in the last few moments of camping.  We ate lunch outside and then got everything packed up and everyone loaded up and headed home.  That's an advantage of camping close to home, the leaving morning doesn't have to be rushed bc there's not a long drive home.  that's nice.  :)  We fed the pelicans before we left, then went on a phone hunt!  Chris thought his was in his pocket and then it wasn't and after walking the grounds, we finally found he had actually left it in the RV!  LOL.  *rolls eyes*  The little boys rode home with Glenn and when we both got there, Glenn said he had to pull over bc Keegan accidentally dropped his stuffed police dog "Maximus" out the window!  He was so upset but Honey found Maximus and the dog survived the whole ordeal!  Whew!  LOL.  Willow was so glad to see everyone, she was sooooooo hyper!  lol  We are so looking forward to our next camping trip!  :)

camping day 4, 11-24-15

Oh my, why do we always wake up so EARLY while camping?!?  lol, seems we are almost always just about up with the sun!  ALL of us!  Maybe its the close quarters, or that more sun shines in or that we are just excited to be out in nature or perhaps we sleep better bc we are more relaxed and need less.  I don't know what it is but I know it is!  lol  Pancakes for breakfast this day.  Daddy makes the pancakes!  He's the pancake maker!  :)  Keegan asked, "Can I go out in the wild and find some leaves and stuff?  I know my way back."  I love how much my babies love the outside when we are camping.  At home sometimes its so easy to just stay in, camping kind of forces us to really get in touch with the outdoors and we all really enjoy that!  I feel closer to my family to while we are out there.  We can really just focus on us and its great!  We ate lunch outside.  Enjoyed a game of Apples to Apples (we played it backwards) with the olders while the littles played at the playground.  Then Glenn took the older ones on a bike ride to the nearest convenience store to pick up marshmallows that someone forgot to buy!  Isn't that a camping necessity?!  How in the world did I forget those?  I did though!  but o-well they got a good memory out of it!  :)  Then there was cooking dinner and of course some country music to help with the cooking!  Dessert of course was roasted marshmallows.  I like mine burned!  :)

camping day 3 , 11-23-15

oops, I forgot to finish blogging our camping trip!  lol, Let's see what I can remember (I took a few notes, so I have a little help!)  We all played with a play dough set we won from Toys R Us.  The littles were super excited and kept calling it play doh land or world!  lol.  I had forgotten how much I like play doh.  lol  This trip, Kayson discovered his shadow!  He was talking to it and trying not to walk on it and wondering where it went at night!  We enjoyed dinner outside by the fire and then I did some crocheting for Christmas.  I love sitting by a campfire and being in nature.  The people just across the road from our campsite put up a big white sheet and projected a movie onto it.  That was neat!  We could sit at our campfire and see it and even hear if we were real quiet.  :)
