Be prepared for a picture overload. I couldn't help myself.
Last week my family went camping and overall we had such a great time.
I learned a few things while I was there.
I'm a little (maybe a little more than a little) more high maintenance now than I was when I was younger. Things like my own shower, bathroom, mirror, etc. definitely weren't an inconvenience when I was eight.
I am an official converter to the one piece swimsuit.
For those of you that asked before, this one is from Old Navy but is a year or two old.
I'm thankful for the men who set up our campsite when we got there.
This little man even did his part.
I don't think I could ever eat enough s'mores to make me feel sick or to get tired of them.
My sister is one of the strongest woman I know. After being diagnosed with Lyme's disease a few weeks, and feeling quite terrible she still wanted to go camping. And then after a health scare and trip to the ER while we were camping she was beyond a trooper with such an amazing attitude.
She is incredible.
My nephew is now officially a runner.
And I'm already planning to fulfill a dream of mine and run a mini race with him this next year.
We did quite a lot of practicing while we were camping.
Starting stance, countdown, finish line. We did it all.
I have the most sweetest, cutest and most loving nephew in the world.
(This one I already knew, but think so even more.)
I appreciated the break from phone, internet and even blogging.
These kids LOVED the beach and we had so much fun playing.
Camping is hard when you have little kids. Even with nine adults.
But luckily the kids don't even have a clue and loved it.
Flies, dirt, wind. Nothing bothers them.
(I can't say the same for myself.)
I absolutely love my family and feel like they are my greatest blessing.
