Good morning! I don’t care how rough the night was, there is just something about an early morning campfire that is completely peaceful. There is just no way to be upset with a little cutie in footie jammies sipping his juice box next to the campfire, no matter how fussy he was the night before.
And, watching your husband and daughter cook breakfast while you sip your morning cup of coffee; priceless!
Oh, the fountain… I was so thankful that we had the one and only pump that did not drain. That way whenever tired boy got a little too clingy, we could head to the “wa-wa.”
Mountain skies need no comment.
After breakfast, we headed to the lake to rent a pontoon boat.
We should have brought our fishing gear!
It was so awesome to have the dog come with us, too! He was just dying to jump out and chase some ducks. And, this is how current attempts at a family picture go. **sigh **
We stopped for a while and let the kids dip their feet in. If we had thought ahead, we would have had them wear swimsuits to jump in for a quick dip. Next time.
Exhausted from the night before.
So, every time Tricia and I have gone camping together, lunch has always been quesadillas and spanish rice. We couldn’t break tradition, of course!
After lunch, we walked back across the street to the lake.
This dog was sooo happy… even if he couldn’t catch a duck, he sure had fun trying!
Brave little monkey had to swim!
For dessert, Tricia brought all the fixins’ for campfire cones. They were a huge hit with the kiddos!
Day 3 coming soon…
