We went camping last weekend with Rocky (Royce's brother) and Carol for Rocky's birthday. It was a lot of fun, and so good to get outdoors again. The girls had a really good time together, and Royce went the whole time without a computer! It was a big step for him, and he said it was so nice to be able to step back and relax a little bit. :)

This is Chloe our little niece. By the end of our hike both girls got really tired, and Rocky was carrying Lyla, Carol had the big backpack with all of the bottles/water, so Royce took Chloe on his shoulders, and I carried Emmaline on mine, and by the end both girls fell asleep.

Bath time!

Yeah, we also kind of learned that camping with a baby isn't really a good idea. :) Lyla was almost a year old, but it was still really hard for Rocky and Carol, because she was really cooped up, and couldn't get down on the ground to move around because she liked to stick everything in her mouth. They were even smart enough to bring the pack and play, but even with that she still got frustrated. So for us it was a really easy nice trip, but it was a lot harder for them. And the mosquitoes ate all of us alive! We even put on bug spray, but my legs were covered. But camping at Emmaline's age was really fun, so maybe just wait a little longer. :)
