Another Week of Camping!

30 Jul

We went camping again with our church. It was fabulous! I love camping. I’m always bummed when we have to break down. It’s so great to be away from the “real life.” It doesn’t seem to matter what the kids consume that week. More sugar and snacks in one week than they do the whole year it seems. There are so many other kids and families and everyone takes care of each other. We camped at Bellows Beach which is owned by the military, so it’s different from most camp sites in that it’s really secure. It’s usually very clean and they do have hot water showers! It was awesome. We can’t wait to go back next year.  Hopefully for TWO WEEKS!

Remember this pic?

I painted a ton of faces for a few hours one night.  It was really fun.  I haven’t done it in a while.It doesn’t get any easier than this…These girls had so much fun together!  They even had sleepovers at camp.

This guy loves the ocean.  It’s the one thing that keeps him from taking a break to eat.My baby girl really took to uncle Nate.  It was really nice for me 🙂She was very happy when he brought her ice cream.  Twice!We shared dinner duty, so it was nice to only cook for half of the nights.  I think we got the better end of the deal.  They made steaks and we made chili!See the crab in the yellow boat toy?

It was convenient to have an endless supply of sand.  There were no issues with sharing.
This little blonde girl is moving back to the mainland in less than two days, so they were pretty much attached for the whole camp out.  We’re really dreading their departure.Happiness.It was nice to see these two getting along 🙂

My boys.

I love camping.  We never missed our church camp out growing up.  It was always a huge priority in our home.  I understand why.  So many memories.
