Camping

Well, we survived our weekend of camping. This is the second year that we have been asked to go with the youth in our branch on their camp out. This year they are going to Martin's Cove in Wyoming for Youth Conference and this was kind of a preparation for that.

I was really surprised at how well Travis did. He was such a trooper! I was kind of unsure how he would do with not being able to get down and move all around as he pleased during the day, but he did good...that night was another story. I know I shouldn't expect to sleep while I'm camping, but I wasn't expecting that every time Carson or I moved that he would wake up. Oh well.

Carson was in heaven the whole time we were there. He loves being outside where there are sticks galore, cows, horses, and marshmallows! What made it even better was that his favorite friend from church was there too! We enjoyed great food (we had goat...a first for me...), riding horses, roasting mallows, and good conversation. We are so glad that we have such a fun family in our branch that invites up to their property to party with them!

I just had to post this to show Travis' teeth. He now has four of them! Once the first one popped through, the other three were right behind! I'm sad to say that the poor kid is looking like he is going to have my HUGE teeth...

Hoorey for camping!!! Carson looks like he was eating it all up! Travis sure has a mouthful!

The boys sure look cute and right at home in the camping atmosphere. It all looks like fun (except for the no sleeping part.) ;)

How fun!! Every time I see Travis he reminds me of Misse's daughter Zoe. She's 10+ months old and has 2 teeth. We went camping this weekend too, along with Misse and her family. The kids did pretty good during the day, but like you, the nights were less than ideal. I can't believe Carson is riding a horse--what a big boy!!

Looks like you all had a complete blast. Our YW in the Ward are gearing up for camping this next week. Luckily I injured my arm and can't go now. Actually, I was kinda looking forward to spending this time with my daughter. Always next year, but who knows, I might be "uncool" by then.

Oh, his teeth...too cute!
