Weekend Roundup

I think I will copy Wendy and do a Weekend round-up series. It was a busy weekend resulting in a lot I want to document!

Friday after Merci got home from school we packed up and headed to the camp ground.
We were pretty hungry since Josh and I forgot to eat because of all the busyness of getting ready.
We stopped at McD's and wondered how much longer until we got to the campground.
To our surprise the camp ground was seriously across the street.
We felt silly for not being able to wait a bit longer to cook some hot dogs or something.
Oh well.
We had fun, the kids were surprised that their aunt (only 4 years older than Merci) and uncles (11, 16, & 17) were there and immediately got to driving us crazy.

We started the nightly tradition of glow sticks, sparklers and smores!





And this is how close McD's was, this is from our camp site:


We were really roughing it with this so close and WiFi
(even though I contained myself and didn't bring the laptop)

Don't want to bore you, so stop back the next few days for the rest of the story!

Wow, great pics! Looks like E is having a blast. And M looks like she's about 15! Sheesh, they are growing up so fast. J is almost as tall as me. Although at my height, thats not all that hard to beat.

Camping were always such great times for my cousins and I. You are giving your kids great memories.

LOL!! boy you guys were roughing it. Too funny that you could see McD's from your campsite. I love that:) I don't think we had one for like 2 hours around us. I am glad that you guys had soooo much fun! I can't wait to hear the rest of the story. Oh, and when did Merci get so grown up?!? It's happening to Wesley also! AHHHH!!!!

Sounds like alot of fun! We love to go camping too. We are planning our next trip for October, since that is when it finally cools off here in FL!

OMG, Merci does NOT look 8 in that picture. She looks like a teenager! Sorry we couldn't make it. Looks like you guys had fun though!
