I'm back from a little family camping trip. I'll try not to bore you all with too many cutsie family pix, but hey, this is what's going on with me right now. :)
So we headed out for 4 nights of camping fun with a 4 1/2 year old and 2 year old. We were feeling adventurous. And it could have been quite nice were it not for the unrelenting rain. As it is, camping with small kids is pretty messy, but the mud...oh, the mud.
Not to be negative...we did actually have a really great time. The first two nights we did the tent thing.
And the kids were pretty happy even if they had to stay inside it a lot.
The rain let up every once rain while and we were able to have a campfire and stuff. And one day was even sunny enough for the beach.
Plenty of sand and surf fun. (We were at Cape May, NJ)
Aurora made sand angels. At least they had showers at the campground.
I'm glad we squeezed in all the camping stuff we could, because night 3 was just a no go. One of the tents was sitting in a 3 inch deep puddle. It may have been possible to survive and not be totally miserable, but we opted for a hotel. It was sad for Aurora who wasn't ready to say goodbye to the adventure (neither was I), but the indoor pool was a big hit and really useful before summer swimming lessons.
And while it was rainy or cloudy almost the whole time there, some of the breaks were long enough to enjoy fun things like the Wildwood Boardwalk.

This is how we spent Father's Day...which I hope Dad and Pops enjoyed.
Of course with all the activity we were all feeling a bit like this by the end.
And now we're glad to be home.
