Holly and Scot left early to get us a good spot, and Sean and I drove up with Nikki, Ben, and company.
Nikki and I braved the back with Logan and Austin.
Sean was Ben's "navigator".
Our sweet camp site area, complete with a place for the kiddos to play.
Holly bought this sweet net to cover all of our food/prep area. GENIUS.
Holly and Scot
Story of my life...
That's better :)
Our sweet new tent!
Logan got a little muddy...he's still adorable though.
Doing what I do best, brushing and flossing.
The kiddos playing around in the dirt.
We all thought it would be fun to canoe down the river. We "thought"... :)
Sean being his photogenic self. All of the leaves were just starting to change, it was gorgeous.
Nikki and I love pictures. Even when we're make-up free and camping.
...and this is where the fun began. This 98749283 year old van took us up this hill to the start of the canoe trip. It barely made it up the hill, I think we were all a little nervous at this point.
My favorite smile of Logan's! He and Austin did NOT like the canoe ride. Hence, Nikki and Ben had a terrible time too. I felt really bad because there was really nothing any of us could do once we were on the river, because the entire ride was pretty much downstream. Logan cried the entire canoe ride, poor thing. Nikki basically was having a panic attack because she thought her kids were going to die. Next camping trip...probably no canoeing. On a lighter note Sean, Holly, Scot, Ryan, Nathan, and I all had a good time though. :)
Scot, Holly, and their kiddos decided to leave after the canoe excursion. The rest of us thought we would take a train ride around the camp site. It was meant for kids, but we still had a good time!
It was all pretty cute.
Bonus: I got a funnel cake and some drinky-drank. Yummmmm!
It was such a fun trip, we had a blast! I'm so glad we went, even though it was last minute. Funny/not so funny story: It's about a 2 1/2-3 hour drive away from home. Nikki and Ben switched drivers on the way home, and when Nikki got out she dropped her phone on the side of the highway. Of course she didn't realize it was gone until they got home. She and Ben used their gps tracking app, saw where it was, and then she and Holly drove 2 hours back to Oklahoma to go and get it! Shockingly, it was unharmed, just sitting there in the grass on the side of the highway. Crazy!!! God bless smart phones.
All in all it was a blast, and I hope this has filled Sean's "camping canteen" until at least the spring. Yay for camping. :)
