Camping in Island Park

While Emma was at youth conference for two days, Rob took the kids camping with their Aunt Janet and Uncle Tate and all their kids and a few friends. We had a BLAST. It was Ethan's first time camping. We like to take our kids out camping before they turn one year old and Ethan is no exception. He loved it. Below is Cosette fishing with her cousins Faith and Shandell, three peas in a pod.Nearing the end of our camping trip, Isaac is helping his favorite uncle roll up one of the tents. This is the famous Uncle Tate, cowboy extraordinaire.
On the trip we past several fields of flowers. Yellow and white flowers as far as the eye can see in some cases. I have no idea what they are but it took my breath away. You just can't go a full camping trip for the first time and not have your picture taken like a hundred times. Here is Ethan and his larger than life Dad. Fun was had by ALL.
Rob, Cosette, Isaac, and Ethan slept in a tent and slept very well I might add. We got in bed about 10:30pm after roasting marshmallow's and singing songs by the camp fire and didn't get up till 6:30am for Ethan and 8ish for Cosette and Isaac. It helped that we all slept on an air mattress with plenty of covers.

What a great dad to take all three kids camping by himself. It is very pretty there. Thanks for stopping by when you where in California. It was great to see you and the kids.

Thats brilliant!! Love the photos, but I wonder if Phil will be that good to take our children, that is once we start a family :-)

It looks like sooo much fun! Jacie has been camping once now, but we plan on doing it a whole lot more!
