Camping

We went camping again this weekend. Lucy got up bright and early on Saturday morning so we made it to the campground by 9:30. Plenty of time to have lots and lots of fun in the sun, meeting and chatting up our new friends.
Betsy and Ivy form a game plan for the day.

Morgan and Mel took a tour of Minnesota before they found their way to Interstate State Park in WI. I took the kids to the naturalist event.


They became slightly engaged in the activity at hand. Of course Lucy made her own craft which was nothing like the craft the naturalist put together.



The kids were very excited when it was time to hit the beach. Lucy of course swam like a fish, shark or mermaid depending on the moment.

Brian and Mindy joined us for a couple hours.

and she sleeps

the morning after, camp pack up in a rainy rush
Once again Lucy proves that she is a darn cool camper. She LOVES camping. She sleeps good in the tent, is fairly content playing with dirt/water/sticks and stones and eats like a maniac in the fresh outdoors.
