Camping Continued . . .

So, as you recall, Brian took the kids camping a couple of weeks ago.  I finally have the pictures from Brian and James so I thought I would finish the report. 

After loading up the van they set out on their trip. 

Riding in the van.

After about nine minutes of driving (maybe less) they stopped for lunch at CiCi's Buffet.

Where Jon loaded up his plate.

They had a good lunch . . .

But it was time to get back in the van.

For the long drive.

With a full tummy, Andrew fell asleep.

Pretty soon they had arrived and worked together to set up camp.

  After everything at camp was squared away they headed over to play in the splash zone.   

Looks like they all had a fun time. 

They also took some walks through the swamp trails.

They found several snakes while walking. 

They had burgers and chips that night for dinner. 

The next morning dawned bright and promising.

They visited the nature center that is in the park.

And saw lots of cool things.

They also took more walks.

There were boardwalk-type trails to explore.

Faith and Jon having fun.

I guess it was hot out.

When they got back to camp they had hotdogs for lunch over the campfire.

Then it was time to pack up and, after another visit to the spray park, they headed home where Peter, Matthew and I were waiting for them.

They had a good time camping and I think the plan is for all of us to go along next time.  Peter really really wants to try it.

Glad they had fun. Camping was always fun when you were a kid and even when I was a kid. You might need another tent though.

Luv Ya, Grampa

I agree, looks like fun. I would not like to see the snakes though in the swamp. Love you all!
