Camping We Will Go

This weekend my family along with my Mom and Dad went on a weekend camping trip. A local camping area hosts a children’s fishing derby. It is free and the kids win prizes for most fish caught, biggest fish, or for just signing up.

Our friends have a trailer at this campground and they were nice enough to let us all stay in it. It was big and very cozy.

We went to the beach. It was Oney’s first time camping and the first time on the beach. He loved it! Oney also has a thing for rocks. Camping was a great place for him to find rocks to play with.. When I say he has a thing for rocks, what I mean is he will find one and keep it. Never giving it up. He would sleep with it if I let him. Forget spending money on toys, just get this kid a bucket of rocks and he will be good to go.

Grandpa and Big D took the kids fishing. Lil D caught a 24-inch Carp. I think Carp is a disgusting fish, but they caught it and it was huge. In the fishing world I guess that is all that matters.While the kids and the men were fishing, Grandma and I set up our chairs at camp and we relaxed! Yes you heard me right, we relaxed for a good hour, and it was wonderful.

The Camping trip was a lot of fun. I can't wait to plan the next one.

At the end of the trip Big D had Lil D swimming without his float and going underwater. I love Dads.

This is my attempt at a sand castle.

Here is my clan. One day I will get a picture of everyone smiling and all eyes are open.
