Camping!

Friday night we took off to see how the boys would do camping. We had a blast (until it was time to go to sleep that is)! Zions is beautiful and the campground was awesome. Best of all its only like a half hour from our house. We had foil dinners, smores, sat around the campfire, and in the morning had pancakes, hot cocoa, and strawberries. Caleb loved it and was so excited to sleep in the tent we didn't have to fight him at bedtime. He unloaded the car for us into the tent and set his bed all up.
Davis is at a hard age because hes still a little clumsy and him running around the fire scared us a little. So this is how he ended up enjoying the fire. He also didn't want to go to sleep. He finally ended up with us but since it was cold he would dive over the pillows and get out of the covers so we finally let him cry for 15 mins at 1:00 in the morning until he fell asleep in his pack-n-play. We were surprised by how cold it got at night.
Doesn't Davis look like hes having a blast! He has the best faces when he gets into trouble or when hes sad. I'm so glad we were finally able to kind of catch it on camera!
Caleb's sweet bed head from falling asleep on the way!

See cant you tell we had a lot of fun from these faces! We learned A LOT about camping with kids and look forward to a fun campfire filled summer!

Those are great photos! You'll love those when they get older, I'm sure! That's a brilliant idea, by the way, with the play-pen around the fire.

How fun! Chad and I have talked about going camping with the kids down there. Maybe this summer since the two trips we've tried to plan for California have been canceled.

That sounds fun! How lucky you are that you are so close to Zion. I LOVE Zion!

We've got the National Park pass so entry into the park is free (you still have to pay the camping fee). You should just stay longer after the wedding that might be here! It would be so much fun!

Very nice. I like the sad/angry face and the fire pack-n-play best.

The circle of life. I think we took you kids to the same camp ground.

How fabulous! Da ja Vu! When you kids were young, I tried to convince Dad it was "The family that Prays together, stays together", but he didn't buy it. What he finally bought was "The family that camps together, Stays together"! I think we were both right. I love the faces- perfect shots on both of them! I have to say that Davis has the most expressive eyes and completely expressive face! "With one look you know what I'm saying". Go Davis!

We went to Zions last year as a last-minute Dyer family trip and it was a blast. I told Jake we should do it again...because it is so fun adn beautiful! We'll have to get together.
