The Great Outdoors

We had so much fun on our camping trip – but we were all exhausted Sunday night, and then Monday was the first day back at school!  Whose idea was it to do this the weekend before school started?  So although I STILL haven’t unpacked everything from the  trip, I did want to post some pictures.  Priorities, ya know?

Hopefully work and soccer will allow us to do a few more trips this Fall.  And my brother thought this whole thing was a bad idea

This is forced family fun at its finest!  No, seriously – we love it.  If you haven’t been camping lately, or ever, you really should try it.  Especially if you have little ones.

    Maybe I’ll send some to you guys – you know, with your “I don’t care, obviously, ’cause I’m never gonna get around to sending it” package. 🙂
