Family Camp

>> August 19, 2007

Last week was a pretty crazy week - getting ready for Epic's all-church campout (shopping for 50 people), still working on home stuff, getting ready for the first day of school (coming this Wednesday) at a new school.

Camp was sooooo much fun. We camped at Pismo Beach in Oceano Loop. The last time we camped in a tent, Merritt was 2. Needless to say, our tent accomodations were a bit tighter this time around, but we were plenty comfortable.

Merritt had a blast. He got to ride the dunes in a Rhino, which was an experience in itself. He also went boogie boarding for the first time.

Mason thought camping was the best. He cried when it was time to pack up and asked me this morning to go back. He would be happy if we lived at the campground.

Molly did great! She even slept through the night every night we were there.

We left camp last night at 10:30 pm so we could be home for church this morning. Now I am just tired, and it is obvious from their behavior that the rest of my family is too. So we will all be going to bed early tonight. It's time to start getting Merritt in the school bedtime routine anyways.

Here are a few more pictures from camp...

Mason was singing "Wipeout" while pretending he was surfing.

Mmmmm. S'mores

It was really cold at night, but Molly stayed nice and toasty with our friend Chris. It was good practice for Chris too who is currently expecting his first child.

PS. Here are a couple of pictures from the day Molly turned 11 weeks old that I kept meaning to get posted, but alas had no time to sit at the computer. As you can see from one of these pictures and one of the pictures from camp, she is trying really hard to be a thumb sucker.

Looks like you guys had fun :) Sounds like you are also very busy! Are you remodeling the kitchen at your new house yourself? Are you teaching? Hope everything goes well the first week of school :)

Hey Rhonda... we are getting ready to go on our church campout too. Going to Big Bear. It's fun to spend the weekend with families that you normally just see on Sunday or for a few short hours on another day. Wish you were coming with us. Cute pictures. But, where are the ones of you camping????

Great pictures! Molly looks like a doll all wrapped up. I miss our family camps dont you? Your post is great and I am glad you are home safe and had fun. Dont kids make camping the best! They make everything more exciting. I always tell them how bored I would be without them to liven things up. Love you friend!
