We Survived and Had Fun!

We arrived at our planned campground Friday night to find it hadn't been opened yet.  So we drove back down to the Little Naches campground just down the road.  We found a great spot, and set up camp in a downpour.  Dana and I were soaked and freezing by the time we all ate hotdogs and pasta salad in the trailer.  It didn't look like the first night was going well, but by the time we put the boys to bed, the rain had stopped and we went out and gathered around the campfire Dana made and ate s'mores.

Saturday and Sunday were beautiful.  Better weather than they had in town.  While we haven't been camping in over a year and a half, it felt like things were back to normal being outside and enjoying ourselves.  I think the boys really liked their first trip, and we are all looking forward to the next time.

Fabulous family fun! Personally, my idea of camping is a cheap hotel, but I do love family vacations and s'mores!

Rain and camping just are not fun.
We once woke up to snow everywhere, it was a big surprise.
Looks like it was a great time!

This really makes me want to go camping, too. Especially with a camper. The boys are so cute
