Each year several families from the neighborhood arrange a camping trip at Falls Lake. This year we had 7 families camp and it was awesome! We always reserve the same campsites that back up to a huge field and a playground (i.e. more space for us and keeps the kids entertained for hours).
Our little home for the night (actually the twins and I went back home after s'mores). I'm all for camping, but not with 4 month old twins. No thanks :) They were good sports though. They were held by everyone there, rolled around on a blanket :)
I dyed noodles for their camping necklaces.
Otherwise, you found the kids playing various games on the playground, searching for bugs in the big field or eating!
The little bug catcher. I see you, P!
Some of the Dads grilled dinner
Lots of children- lots of food!
It was a great night and really neat how all the kids get along so well. We couldn't ask for better neighbors and we obviously really enjoy spending time with them :) The only bummer of this trip was at 5:30 AM Will said his tummy hurt and threw up in the tent. Adam cleaned up W, woke up P and drove them both home. That is a bonus of camping nearby! He later went out later and enjoyed a campfire breakfast and packed up with everyone. W appeared to be fine afterwards, he said he ate too many cheese balls. Well, lesson learned!
