This past weekend we drove an hour away to go camping at Mineral Wells State Park. We went with 3 other families in our ward and it turned out to be a BLAST! Each family had a child that was 18 months or younger so it was interesting during bedtime, but all turned out great. One of my friends brought her fly fishing gear so I got to witness my first UP CLOSE person fly fishing. I can now understand why people LOVE fly fishing. It was awesome to watch.
Another friend made some Australian bread that you cook on the end of a stick. It felt like playdough, and I can't remember the exact name of it, but that was fun to do along with the s'mores. We fell into bed around midnight and Austin woke up at 4AM and insisted on getting out of the tent. I coaxed him back in bed with me and only woke up one other baby(oops) but finally got him calmed down and back to sleep until 6:30. Not bad! I brought an egg carton foam pad and a thin mat to sleep on and it worked GREAT. I'm excited to go again in the next month - hopefully!
In the morning we went on a hike(walk) around the lake and then packed up to go home. Austin fell asleep instantly in the car which was around 2 PM and stayed asleep until 5 PM that evening. I think we tuckered him out. Sadly, I forgot my camera so I have nothing to show! Next time!
