More about Camp!

OK, so Thursday we pull into the campground, and start figuring out what campsites we want...we come up with two main options: secluded, peaceful, room for kids to safely run....or close to the bathrooms? Hmmmmm....we chose the secluded, albeit fearing the wrath of the women in the church! LOL (y'all aren't reading this are you???? LOL) We decided that folks could walk, I mean we were going camping, right? (besides, we stick a potty in our tent at night for the kids to use!) So we chose the pretty, secluded campsites near the river....BTW, just so you know, although we were camping we do get sites with electricity and water....LOL After picking the sites, the fun was on! We pulled out the tent and Dad and Jazz got busy setting that up, while Mom and the others got started on grilling some hot dogs for lunch. Then it was on to making up the beds....and then due to the fact that Jazz was whining, it was time for a nap. So Momma cornered the baby, while the others went on the hunt for firewood. After naps, we went and rented a boat....now this was really cool...for $5 you could have the boat all day! Now these were aluminum boats, and to get to the water, you had to go down a steep set of steps down the river bank....So we picked up the boat (yes, literally "picked" it up, and yes, it was heavy!), and carried it to the top of the stairs....now what? Heath, smart cookie, decided that the best way to get it down there was to throw it....just kidding....was to slide it down the steps holding on, and it worked very well! So we finally got it in the water, and climbed in the boat and set of down the river with Daddy, Lyd and Jorge paddling, and Mommy holding on to Jazz, while Jekkie just enjoyed the ride! It was sooo quiet and peaceful, and the kids really did a great job of helping dad. Then there was a call from above us....others had arrived....

To be continued.....

Awesome! Can I come next time??? :)
I hope we get to come over soon! Oh, and how did Jared go with setting the tent up? He must be getting bigger than I thought! :)

I was thinking the same thing. How big is Jared now??? Then again it would have been more suprising if he was grilling the hotdogs!!!
