Memorial Day Weekend… the weather was gorgeous, and the time was right to take the girls camping.
We found our campsite down by the lake got to work setting up the tent.
Even diva girls love spending time in the woods… who couldn’t be happy in gorgeous surroundings like these?
Well, maybe not these diva girls. It was a long way from the dream house. I suspect this the roughest camping trip these girls had ever been on, but I can’t be sure…
One of the very best parts of camping… the junk food, of course. Anything goes when you’re camping, and hot dogs are THE BOMB when cooked over a fire out in the woods.
We laughed… a LOT. Annie even laughed when she fell backwards out of her tiny green chair. If you know Annie, “falling out of chairs” is one of her skills.
We did decide that it was time to pass her tiny green chair down to the baby and get Annie a real, grown-up chair. She’s a first-grader now, after all.
Then, you know, everybody had to take a turn falling out of the tiny green chair.
See? Camping is the best form of family entertainment.
Waking up in the tent. Sleep is the greatest out in the woods… though we did hear some spooky coyote noise around 4am. We weren’t scared though because we’re tough like that.
Seeing as how we forgot to bring a mixing bowl for our scrambled eggs, we got creative and cracked eggs into a used (rinsed) Gatorade bottle and shook them up good, because we have ingenuity and creativity and don’t need a darn mixing bowl.
Breakfast burritos were SO good…. crumbled, browned sausage, scrambled eggs, and shredded cheese on a tortilla. There is NO better breakfast.
We set up our breakfast buffet on the back of the golf cart. Heck yes, Velveeta shreds! Junk food is THE menu when you’re camping, and don’t you forget it.
The fire seemed to follow Katie Beth around no matter which side of the fire she sat on. Smoke follows the pretty people, we told her. I wish I was ugly!, she said.
See? Smoke. Following Katie Beth. *I like how the sun is streaming through the trees in this picture…
The kids’ favorite thing? Getting to drive the golf cart. We drove for miles through the woods.
Driving the golf cart = Annie face – level fun.
