We went on our first camping outing as a family this past weekend. For those of you who do not know, we do not go "real" camping. We have a camper and the campgrounds we went to had full hook ups, which meant full use of our toilet, microwave, air conditioning, heat, etc. It was a really good time and a much needed break away from everything by ourselves. It was rainy/stormy most of the day on Saturday, so we stayed in a relaxed. Charlie did great with it. Friday night he did not sleep as soundly as he usually does, but by Saturday night he was fine. One of Vince's major concerns was having Charlie and Chloe in the backseat of the truck together, but they were fine! We are looking forward to our next trip in August to Southwick Beach. We try to make this trip every year and love the campgrounds, but they do not have the nice amenities (electric, water, etc) that we had this weekend, so it will be a little more challenging with Charlie, but hopefully we will make do!

All hooked up and ready to go!

Please don't slobber on me Chloe!!

Friday night, camping pasta while Charlie sleeps

Sleeping peacefully!

Taking a quick walk in between storms on Saturday!

Mmm, I love frog legs!

Look Ma, no hands!!

We managed to pack everything up while Charlie slept the time away!

Back at home!
I missed my bouncy seat so much!!
