We took our 1st family camping trip this week. We headed up Farmington Canyon and found a nice shady spot at Bountiful Peak Campground. Not quite what Logan was visioning, but it worked out really well.
2 Kids + LOTS of dirt + laid back mom and dad = a FUN camping trip
Sophie spent much of the day and evening digging in this sandy dirt. She was looking for treasure!
Both kids were so dirty--I seriously don't think either one of them had ever been so dirty. I guess that means they had a good time, right?
We took a hike, which didn't really go as planned. Sophie refused to walk and then later needed to go potty and wasn't thrilled about becoming one with mother nature. Therefore our hike was cut short in order to make it back to the potty seat set up at camp:)
Good times at camp!
Collin held onto this box of Rice Krispy Treats all night long. He didn't want to eat one, but he had to hold them.
We roasted hot dogs, and made s'mores. The kids were eating all night long. I didn't take a picture, but Collin had set up his own camp on the table surrounded by chips, chocolate, marshmellows, graham crackers, and apple juice!
Sophie felt more at home once we discovered a pen and paper in the car. She could color her life away, she seriously loves it.
There never have been 2 kids more excited to go to sleep. They could not wait to get in the tent-- We wouldn't let them in it because of all the dirt they were covered in. Once they got in, they were bouncing off the walls. After finally getting the kids to sleep, I was thinking this might not be too bad--despite the hard ground that my pregnant self was not too thrilled about sleeping on! After several hours, Collin woke up crying. We got him settled down and then Sophie woke up crying to go home to her own bed. She cried for probably a half hour before going to sleep and was up off and on throughout the night. We also had a racoon rummaging through our camp. Needless to say we were all pretty tired the next day! Despite this, it was a fun camping trip and one that I hope we try again (this time with an air mattress!)
