Camping

We spent another wonderful weekend in McCall.  Our whole family had such a good time.  This was the first time we've taken the kids camping for two nights and I have to say the second night is the best because everyone is so tired they all slept through the night!  It rocked. 

While camping we did our best to wear out the kids beyond all belief.  The first night there we took the kids huckleberry picking. 


Bonnie did a really great job helping Jay pick berries.  I had Charlotte in my arms so I wasn't much good except for telling them which bushes were full berries.  These are the yummiest berries ever!  Jay and I had huckleberry pancakes for breakfast the next morning (the pancakes rocked)!

The next day we spent at the beach, as the kids like to say.  It was really Payette Lake and was so beautiful.  The weather was just perfect and Bonnie had a great time seeing how far she could get in waist deep.


Chas just played on the beach and Charlotte scooted around all day on the beach.  It was just a blast.


We got back to our campsite pretty late that night.  Charlotte went straight to bed and the kids & I watched a movie.  Isn't camping grand?  We have a small portable DVD player and it was so worth the money, at night it's a great way to get the kids in the tent and just calm down before you stick them in bed. 


We camped right by the big rock again and had many adventures trying to climb the rock.  But at this point in my day all I want to do is this:

Oh how I love to sleep.
