The Dirt Hill

The kids discovered a dirt hill to ride their bikes and scooters down.

Jake- at first they were really nervous and kept their feet down but then they warmed up and were soon flying down.

Another Day . . .

Another day camping. . . .

 The kids were so worn out by the evenings that they pretty much passed out while their heads were falling onto their pillows.

Jake and the boy. I always bring him with us to let the drivers know that kids are around. Someone at camp called him a turtle and after looking at him, I think it is a turtle.

Jaileigh took a million pictures. She loves to take pictures. She even took a picture of a guy on his bike that stopped to talk to us. He even smiled for his picture.

Jake, Anthony and Jaileigh became really good at riding their pedal bikes. We camped next to some older kids and my kids followed them around on their bikes and learned some new tricks. They know how to pop wheelies and stand up while pedaling now. You would never believe little 4 year olds can ride like they do.

Camp Day 2

The good part about us camping so close to home is Mike was still able to go to work every day. The kids and I hung out and played the days away. The kids did a lot of bike and scooter riding, digging, swimming, running, bug hunting, tadpole collecting, duck and goose chasing, fire building, and socializing to name a few things.

SPrINg BrEaK 2013!

I had grand plans for this spring break and because life happens, our plans changed. We changed all the reservations and activities I had planned and opted to stay right here in our hometown and camp. The kids didn't know any better and it turned out for the better.

Even though the RV park is less than 2 miles from our house the kids thought we were really far away.

After dinner we went to the pool. This spring break was really cool. I didn't get in the water because I was too cold. The kids only lasted about 20 minutes and then they were ice cubes.

Michael was trying to show off his smore. Gross!
 
 
Jaileigh was having a bad moment. Lots of tears, yelling, and whining. Such a joy!
