Camping

If you're following us on facebook, you noticed this status update on Sunday:

We did it! We camped! Five kids, four adults, one tent (with three rooms), one land rover, one truck, one stuck, one crash, one LOOOOOOONNNNGGGGG trip home...but we survived! Two two-year-olds, one six month old, and two seven-week-olds!!

Who said you can't still travel and have a life when you have kids? Of course, that life is vastly different...hehe.

Our view from the campsite:
 Our Three-room Tent
 We had two pack-n-plays in here (one for our twins and the other for our friend's kids) and a blue tiny tent (Connor slept in that so we knew he wouldn't get up and walk out of the tent in the middle of the night. It only zips from the outside so he needs an adult to help him out).
 I love this one of Connor looking at me!
 Our friends we went with:
 Hot Dog Sunset Dinner
 Me and the Hubby
 A Bottle by the Fire
 Connor took his job of gathering wood for the fire VERY seriously:
 Daddy and his boy. We tried to get him to put the flashlight under his chin and tell ghost stories. It was unsuccessful!
 Here's a better picture of Connor's little tent. The two pack-n-plays were on either side of him!
 Camping Kisses
 Bear Country:
 Mr. Howard took this first thing in the morning. Notice Connor's footie pajamas and stuffed monkey...oh and his hillarious facial expression:

 We brought Starbucks Carmel Frapuccino's with us and the boys heated them on the fire in the morning. Hot Coffee!
 Waking up by the fire in the morning:
 Daddy and Isabella in the morning:
 Apparently tantrums occur while camping too:
 Hot Bagels for breakfast:
 Pack-n-play in the woods for breakfast:
 The boys:
 Loon Lake:
 Loon Lake:
 When did our first get so darn big?
 Casey and Corbin

 I have this cool feature on my camera that allows us to take panoramic shots. Isn't it cool? You can click on the photo to see it enlarged! This was our campsite:

I have lots to add about the offroading portion of our trip...stay tuned!

At the least I would say you are brave...but I'm thinking maybe crazy is more appropriate! We took Paul camping this summer and it was rough...of course I don't consider myself a camper per say. Great job Momma! Good for you! : )

It's a PeaPod! I love, love, love it because you zip it from the outside. He can't get out without asking one of us to get him out. I was worried he would climb out in the middle of the night. My mom found it. http://www.kidco.com/main.taf?p=4,5
