Crane Prairie Camp-Out, Part 1

We've been camping twice this summer. 

That seems like a lot for a woman who just had a baby in June ;)

But we love to be with Jeremy, and Jeremy happens to love camping and fishing. 
So. 
 There ya have it.

Camping, Day 1

It is a tradition to start out a camping trip with a stop at McDonald's.  We have to stop at the grocery store {across the street from McDonald's} for ice and gas before heading out anyway, so we figure we may as well.  The girls love it.  I don't get anything.  I have a very sensitive, weird stomach. So I stay away from food altogether before a trip.  Otherwise it's lots of stops.  And that's not fun for anyone.

Kam got milk.  Her favorite drink. 
Side story: Sierra loved milk too.  More than Kam, even.  Kenners?  Can't stand it.  Never could.
CampingPart1B
This time we stayed at the campground that had full hook-ups.  Plenty of water.  Electricity.  Ahhhh, that's how I like to camp! :)  Some friends stopped by to visit. 
And roast marshmallows.

Kam quickly made friends. They began coloring, and the rest is history.

CampingPart1C
Kenners roasted more marshmallows.  She very much enjoys the sweets.  A girl after my own heart {though I can't say I'm a big marshmallow eater}.

And Sierra, she's my big helper.  I think she'd hold Taylor all day long if I'd let her. 
But I don't. 
Because I can't get enough of her myself ;)


CampingPart1F

She also enjoys snuggle time with her daddy.  I love that she is such a girly girl, but loves to fish and spend time outdoors too.  Well-rounded, that girl ;)

Liz that looks like so much fun! I love the marshmallow picture:) Maybe one day we can come join you on a camping trip...I bet Jeremy would have a blast with Jason and my boys! And you know I would love some girl time:)

Y'alls camping trips always look like so much fun. We are in such a state of severe drought right now that campfires are not allowed. And were y'all wearing long sleeves? *sigh* If only.

So fun! These are great pics!

Precious! I love how Sierra is such a big help. Reagan was like that with Bailey so I can only imagine how much MORE of a help she would be now. You're raising a sweet little mama. :)
Ok, so the milk thing...Reagan is my "milk is gross" kid. The other two...we have to cut them off at some point. :)

Camping with electricity...not that I can do! How fun that you do something that Jeremy enjoys. I only really like marshmallows with S'mores.

I really wanted to camp this year but it's been way too hot here. I love your pics. The girls are precious! I love a really burned marshmallow but I only eat them when we're camping. Weird.

A girl who hates milk?? Oh no. We looooove our milk over here!!

You guys are so much fun. I love camping. Sort of.
Your girls always look SO happy.
I love that you had Kenners wear a helmet to roast marshmallows. :) good move, it can be dangerous.
Take care, Suz
