This was a picture taken and Grandpa and Grandma R's house. The girls have to share a bed when we are there, and it always surprises me to see how they are sleeping when I go into check on them before we go to bed. K and H.
We decided to take our camper for its first expedition into the wilderness (at least with us!). We took off to find the perfect camping spot. And we drove and we drove and we drove and checked out several spots, but couldn't find "the" place. So we ended up driving a lot farther than we thought, but we finally found a good spot.
One spot that we stopped at had so many mosquitoes, it was HORRIBLE. No way were we staying there! We found an off road camping area. Of course, there were no bathrooms or running water, but that is why we have our own camper right!?!
We set up camp and got some dinner cooking. The girls had lots of fun playing in the field by us. There were lots of flowers, and log stumps to play on and with.
This is the camper all popped out. We fit pretty good in it, but we may not as the girls get bigger and longer.

The girls warming up in the sunshine the next morning. They had lots of fun playing in the fire dad made to warm them up that morning. After breakfast and packing up we headed of to do a little paddle boating on Causey Reservoir.
This was the first time we have taken our paddle boat to this reservoir. It was so beautiful. It isn't very big, but it was gorgeous there. There are not power boats allowed on Causey, and it was nice and quiet and peaceful.

A our adventurous one. She was the only kid that went for a swim. The water was a little cold.

We thought we would come to a little beach or something we could have lunch on, but we didn't. All we found was a big rock by the side of the water. We pulled over to it and the girls climbed out to eat their lunch on the rock.
H. It was a fun day until we were headed back to the truck. A accidentally nocked off our rudder, so we had no way of steering the boat back to shore. DH was brave and dived in to help push us back to the shore. We arrived (and ordered a new rudder and an extra just in case this happens again). I love going out camping and spending time together as a family. We hope the girls are making fun memories they will take with them throughout their lives.
