Labor Day Weekend

Over labor day weekend we took the family over to Greenleaf State Park.  It was the first time we took the kids camping. 

Here was our home for the weekend.  We had a great little spot right on the lake.  The boys had a BLAST! 

The twins....well....not so much.  They were a off their schedule and did not appreciate the beauty of the outdoors.  Instead they (Maya) screamed every time a fly got near her.  She hated all bugs and anything that resembled a bug....even grass clippings.  The poor baby got stung by a bee, which just proves to her that she should fear all bugs.  She kept asking to go home and wanted to watch Care Bears. 

Ely took the boys fishing several times a day.  They caught lots of little fish but nothing worth keeping to cook for dinner.
Gavin keeps asking when we're going back.  He absolutely belongs outside. 

There is just something about a fire that hypnotizes you.

Even the most wild children.

Zander fishing off the docks.

Camille being extra "cheesy"

Ok.  For those of you who can't tell the twins apart.  Maya's the one who did not like camping.

Gavin caught his first fish....but I wasn't there to witness =(

I spent most of my days at the playground with these two.

It was definitely a lot of work camping with four young children (esp 2 girly girls!) but we can't wait to go back.  Hopefully this spring the girls will be a little older and more easy can dream right?
