Crane Prairie Camp Out, Part 2

Day 2 at Crane Prairie started with another trip to the store.  We probably stopped by the store about 180 million times during our three day stay.

  Need ice?  Walk down to the store.  Craving an ice cream treat?  Let's head on down to the store ;)

Of course, if we left the site for any amount of time, the chipmunks took over.  Someone forgot to put away the peanuts before heading out for a walk, and . . . well, little critters took advantage.  You would not have believed the mess they made!

There were millions {literally, though we didn't actually count} of these little tiny frogs down by the water.  The ground looked like it was moving, there were so many hopping around.  And they're the tiniest little things.  This picture is of Sierra's little hand holding one.

And we found the little swingset.  {Yes, Kenners wore her bike helmet the entire time.  Regardless of whether or not she was on her bike.  You can never be too safe, ya know}.

Kam LOVED the slide.  As you can see.

CampingPart2E

And again with the swing.  I don't know why my girls love this little swing so.  But I think it's just tradition.  Here is Sierra on it this summer, 2011 . . .

CampingPart2F

And the same swing {with my same little Sierra, just a little tinier}, Summer 2003.  My oh my.

Don't worry, only one more camping installment left ;)  Then we're on to beach installments ;)

Hope y'all are enjoying these last few weeks of summer as much as we are!

What a fun time! Those little critters can cause some problems for sure! I love the picture of little tiny Sierra, and I love Kam's dirty face smile:)

The chipmunk picture cracks me up. We don't have chipmunks down here, but the squirrels are the same way.

And Sierra- oh my goodness, she has grown so much! I mean it's to be expected and all after 8 years, but still. It feels like only minutes, doesn't it?

I love this camping series, so keep 'em coming!

Great pictures! Love Kam's face on the slide.
We have lots of chipmunks in our garden this year. I wish they were as cute as the little one eating a peanut :)

I love the swing/time lapse photos; priceless. And of course...I really should wear a helmet at all times too....if only I looked as CUTE.
The slide photo is amazing!!!!

ps. I love chipmunks, but they never took my nuts. :)

Omagosh, how fun!!! I love the pictures, so cute.
If there is a store anywhere near where I'm camping, I end up being there 75% of the time. :)
