Ready...Set....CAMP!!!

Let this be fair warning that there is lots of cuteness and smiles intertwined in these pictures.
It was a perfect camping trip once we got going!

We started with a couple of strikes.

Strike one: we lost our camper's spare tire and the arm it was on somewhere between home and the lake. Not sure what happened and really hope it didn't cause anyone any problems.

Strike two: It was raining and chilly when we arrived...we had postponed our arrival for a day because the weather was supposed to be beautiful! But it did clear up as we were setting up.

Here is what it cleared up to look like...
this was taken next to our camper...this was our view all weekend!!
The rest of these are in no particular order...
Tyler learning how to use a walkie talkie.
Tyler and his new "friend" Samantha.
See....they were too cute this weekend. Just buds. I'm not allowed to betroth them...yet.
These were the brave males of the group. Jake & Eric, Tyler & Crosley.
This is Sophie...one of the other curly headed-identical twins that we went with this weekend.
S'mores after lunch for children is SO much better than right before bedtime...for everyone involved!
Samantha...I think she's the next official S'mores spokesperson...don't you think?
Sophie (purple) and Nora (blue), loved the dogs this weekend. Which is good because the dogs stayed tied up most of the weekend.
In the words of Holly..."The cutest breakfast EVER!" I couldn't agree more.
I love this of Holly & Jake! Their little girl was trying to take their picture, so I snapped a couple of the whole situation...Jake was horsing around...and I caught the eye-roll from Holly too. Classic love.
This was at the beginning of the day...Jake battled the tent and won!
My fun friend Holly cooking breakfast in the cold wind...we moved cooking locations after this...
Us...through the chaos!!
Holly...just being Holly.
Oh look....a picture of Eric & I. love it.
oh...another one!!
Camryn and her camping buddy, Lydia (Holly's oldest)
Amber being Amber....she found this stump that she pretended was a horse!
I don't get many genuine smiles snaptured from Amber...this one makes me grin everytime!
Dad & Amber
Cuteness in the camper (Lydia, Camryn, Samantha)

And for even more pictures....go see Holly

Needless to say, it was amazing. Fun, easy, awesome. Definitely worth doing with this family whenever we can make it work!!

Holly makes a good point on her blog...7 kids...only scrapes and bonks, no major owies!
