This past weekend we went camping at Clear Lake with all of Dave's family. His two brothers and their kids were there, as well as his Mom and stepdad. We had sooooooo much fun! The boys were thrilled to be outdoors, of course. Coop had never been camping, so it was all new to him - and boy, did he make the most of it! He and Hunter ran all over the place with their cousins. They played football in a big open area, we took walks, collected sticks for the fire, went out fishing a couple of times, roasted marshmallows, slept in a tent, and saw an elk! It was an exciting weekend for our two little guys.
My favorite part was being out in the boat fishing. I caught the most fish and the biggest! Of course I had to let the boys help me reel them in. It was just so peaceful being out there. And so beautiful! We zoomed right by our church camp a few times, which brought back a lot of funny memories. All in all it was a very fun weekend. Our whole family is ready to go again soon. Dave has even mentioned that he'd like to quit playing softball and buy a little motorhome and go camping every weekend. I wouldn't say I'm quite that ready. But I'm getting there!
