I am having a hard time blogging these days...can you tell!? :) We haven't been doing anything too fantastic but we are staying pretty busy just enjoying Summer. When you live in WI you never know when Summer will be gone, it comes and goes too fast. We have been spending lots of time outside...fairs, parades, parks, pools, you name it we're doing it. The kids are loving every second of it and I have no idea how I am going to keep them busy this winter. :) So I apologize to those who actually care and have been waiting for a blog update...ahem, Nana! (My grandma) :) I will try to do better but it's hard sitting on a computer when it's so nice out.
A couple weeks ago we went camping up at Duluth with some good friends. We had SO much fun!! I was curious as to how the kids would do but they did perfect and loved every second of it. Matt and I used to camp pre-kids but we have never taken them. Not sure why, I think we just thought a hotel room would be better for them (or me!) :)
We were going to rent a pop-up camper but a couple weeks before leaving our friends asked us if we wanted to use theirs. Ummm, YES! Matt was pretty pumped to be saving the money on renting one and I was just happy to not have to use a rental...it's a rental people, you have no idea what happens in those things! Gross. So anyway, it was perfect. We have been throwing around the idea of getting one of our own so it was nice to try one out and see how we liked it. We liked it. :)
I am kind of bummed that I didn't get many pictures but that always means that we were having too much fun to break out the camera so it's okay. Here's a few from a little day trip we took into town.
There was 3 other families that were with us and 10 kids between everyone and they all had a blast! We were in the perfect group camping spot that had lots of room for the little ones to run and play, and that they did! Braden loved being able to get a dirty as he could...
Going camping is one of my best memories of a kid and I hope to make it something our kids remember too.
This is definitely something we will be doing much more of next year!
Thanks Tina and family for letting us tag along, can't wait to go again! :)
