camping... kind of.

this summer my parents took their camp trailer out to the spot that we would camp at growing up. it is lush and green with a tiny stream that we would keep our watermelons cool in. when we were little me and my brothers would play barbies (i know, i know, thats what they get for having an older sister) and push them in a little boat down the stream. it is so fun to go back to that same spot with my kids. we drove out for the evening for foil dinners and adventure.

i showed addie the things i would do as a child out in those woods. we found a stick for a baby and a big leaf for her blanket. a cut off tree stump worked as the bed. she stirred leaves for the babies dinner.  she had so much fun holding the lantern when the sun went down. what a simple pleasure.

callie wanted to sit and observe. she watched the men start a fire. she was excited for the yummy hot dogs and smores.

uncle kevin took the girls on a little hike/walk. he took them up the hill to the high rocks and peered over the edge. i almost had a heart attack. but they LOVED that! uncle kevo is so much fun.
