Camping 2011

Camping 2011 was lots of fun!  We decided to check in a day earlier than everyone else.  We got there in the evening and set up camp. The first night in the camper was a rough one.  It was hot!  I didn't slep much.  Plus Matthew fell out of bed 2 times.

He did have fun being co-captian!
He was proud and looked so grown up.  He was not thrilled to have his picture taken.
When he woke up, he came and snuggled with Daddy. 

There may or may not have been some tickling/giggling going on.

Later in the day, there was some fishing going on.
Daddy tried to get Matthew's fishing pole fixed up.

He was having fun and smiling for his mama!
 Emma was there too! 
Matthew helping Daddy with his fishing pool.
Emma got a fish and was pretty excited!

We moved locations and Daddy was helping Matthew fish!
He caught his "whale" (sunfish).
The night before we went camping, Matthew told Grammie and Papa that he was going fishing and he was going to catch a whale.
Being brave enough to touch it but he wasn't brave enough to hold it.
Our campfire one night!

Scott is the master chef when we are camping. 
He has this awesome griddle for his grill that he loves to cook on.
It works the best for breakfasts!
 Aunt Karyl and Aunt Debbie also cooking.
Aunt Karyl is Scott's aunt who started the annual camping trip 24 years ago.  I started going the year Scott and I started dating 16 years ago.  We do 3 days and 2 nights.  By the 3rd day, everyone is getting tired and a little on the grumpy side.
Matthew and Daddy hanging out.  I think they were debating about trying fishing again.
Matthew with his cousin, Eva.  He loves that girl.  He is always talking about Eva and asking where she is.  They had lots of fun playing together.
And giggling!
There was lots of swimming on the second day.  First day was way to windy and a little on the cool side.

Splashing himself!  He was a little braver in the water this year.
He was being a ham! 
He was very open and very talkative to everyone!
The ranger gave the kids these fun frizbees with the holes in the center!
This is how Matthew wore his!

The second night, we had a birthday celebration for Emma!
Her birthday party had been scheduled for a few weeks early but she ended up with hives of some sort (at first they thought chicken pox) so her party was cancelled and rescheduled for when we were all together at camping.
Matthew and Eva again!
Like I said, they have so much fun with each other!
Some more swimming with little boys with matching swim suits.
Matthew's little cousin, Jack, had the same swim suit!
After swimming, we had a awesome dinner of grilled chicken, cheesy hashbrowns, corn and dessert!
Then we packed up and headed for home.
After year done! 
We can't wait for next year!
