Joe was planning to have a guys’ fishing weekend this past weekend, so the kids and I had originally planned a low key weekend at home. But plans changed on Thursday, so we decided a last minute camping trip was a great idea, especially since we haven’t had much time to use the camper this summer. Jayde had a friend’s birthday party on Saturday, so we just stayed close and headed to the Fremont Lakes with my brother/sister in-law and their kiddos. Friday night, the kids got to try out some sidewalk paint my sister-in-law brought.
My sister and her family came out for a while that evening too, so I tried to get a picture of all of the kids around the campfire….it was a good idea in theory but after about 10 pictures, this is the best I got – love these kids!
Saturday morning we went for a bike ride and then went fishing for a little while, and the kids each caught a fish…Danika actually caught 4 I think!
Jayde had a friend’s birthday party in the afternoon, so the rest of us played Mancala for a while – my brother loves board games as you can tell:)
We also went to the park for a little while – Ashton has mastered the monkey bars, which I didn’t realize until this weekend. He’ll be the next American Ninja Warrior!
Some friends came and had some drinks with us Saturday night at our camp site, and Sunday morning we headed home and I spent the day in bed with food poisoning or something like that…not a fun Sunday!
We’re glad we got to camp this weekend – it’s always nice to get away and relax for a bit ….although with kids camping is not always relaxing:)
