Our First Camp Out

We've been talking about taking the kids camping all summer. So, we made a last minute decision and decided to go this past week. We camped for 3 fun days and 3 restless nights. The weather cooperated to a T. The nights were cool and the days perfectly warm. We had a great time and thankfully no mishaps. This was our campsite. It was right next to the lake and had elec. hookups.

Weston wanted to go fishing one morning immediately after he woke up. I think he had to sit a while longer to finish waking up. He didn't want to bait his hook so, Mel helped him.

Weston was instructing her on how to bait the hook how "daddy said".
The campground had a playground. Which they all enjoyed.

I think this tire swing was their favorite. I could hear them screaming all the to our campsite when Mike was twisting them.Mike starting the fire for breakfast.
Mike cooked us two yummy breakfasts. Biscuits, homade hamburger gravy, scrambled eggs and bacon.
Breakfast closeup.....We had a blast on the paddle boats. We took them out two different days.The girls made some new friends while were there. They had a lot of fun playing with them.
I couldn't resist taking this super sweet picture of Grace. She looked so cozy asleep on the tent floor.

Looks like so much fun! We've been wanting to take our kids camping sometime, but haven't had time yet and we don't have a tent yet!

Looks like y'all are having a fun summer! I saw a cookbook the other day called "Campfire cooking" that had all kinds of ideas for cooking like that.

I know I posted a comment already, but I didn't comment on all the pics. Mike is a great Dad and its good to see him taking Mom and kids camping. It looks like they had alot of fun. Cherish, Mel, Weston & Grace have great parents.
All the pics r great but Weston with his pole setting beside him is addorable. He is one handsome little guy.
