week review

Well, we made our first camping trip of the year......over half way through the summer! This was a first for both Gabe and Nolan. It was quite the experience and I think it ended up being pretty successful. James and I both agreed if we had to rate it, we would have rated it about a 7. The weather was perfect, company was perfect, food was yummy, kids had a good time. The only thing that put a kink in our camping trip was the fact that neither James or I slept AT ALL. I am one who needs it to be completely silent to be able to fall asleep. With the other campers at the site staying up a bit later, campers coming in really late to set up camp, and there were 2 wonderful raccoons who decided to spend some time at our camp, at one point deciding to battle it out over some graham crackers. And then the cherry on the top was when Nolan decided to wake up around 4:50am for the day. Yeah.......fun stuff. I was a bit upset/tired, and we both thought he had woken up on the wrong side of the bed since he wouldn't stop crying, and we thought he was just being whiny. I sat in the car with him while he cried and ate Doritos until other people woke up (we were at a camp ground with A LOT of other people and didn't want to wake anyone up) Come to find out that Nolan was sick....we left a lot earlier than we expected since we couldn't keep Nolan happy. We got home and all of us fell asleep for 3 1/2 hours and when Nolan woke up he had a 103 degree fever and wouldn't eat. So if Nolan hadn't of gotten sick, I think it would have been a fantastic trip!!

Waiting for Heather and Jeremy to get there
Sunset on the snake river
Eating some fantastic Peach Cobbler dutch over style
"It's gonna be a little socca player"
The little beach that the kids loved
Gabe swooning Brenley
4:50 in the morning eating some Doritos
playing in the water before we took off...it wasn't the warmest (then again, it was only like 9:30)
So the beginning of this week was used cuddling Nolan while he got better. I also got to go see the Emma Smith movie with my best friend. It was so nice to be able to go see it and learn more about her and her life, what an amazing woman.

That picture of Gabe and Kaden still cracks me up!

I'm sure my rustling (and tripping out of our tent) for my 5 bathroom runs throughout the night didn't help the sleeping situation either. But we had fun, next time it will go smoother... I hope.
