What do you know... it's that time again. It's our second annual camping trip with Uncle Rudy, Aunt Andria, Dominic, Donovan and Devin. This year Aunt Andria's brother and his family joined us again in the fun. FYI - I'm blogging months after the fact.. Yes I'm a terrible blogger
So the plan was for all of us to drive up to camp near Sly Park. Dad and Bianca backed out to go play in a Soccer College Showcase Tournament. So Dad helped me pack up most of the car before he left. Sydney, Peyton, Kamren all in carseats - CHECK. Everything packed and ready to go.

A couple hours later Tios arrived and we set up camp. Everyone helped out and we were settled in fast. Kamren enjoyed exploring all of the campsites, he ran around kicking up dirt and playing with baseballs. The cousins kept each other company and only a few times I had to put Kamren in the playpen so we could get things done.
We ate BBQ'd ribs, potato salad and fruit salad. Yum.
When the fire was started Kamren was mad because he didn't have free reign anymore. He hated being confined to the stroller, playpen or peoples arms. Oh well, safety first... No accidents allowed.
Chris and his family arrived late and finally it was time for smores and bed. First night sleeping was hard. Hard ground and sleeping bags makes for a cranky mama... The kids slept pretty good. We fit perfectly in our new tent with plenty of room to play.
Day 2 the girls plus Kamren, Devin and Dominic took a trail hike to the waterfall. It was a good mile + and pushing the BOB stroller wasn't a picnic. Kamren fell asleep on the hike in, there were a few scary moments pushing along the edge of the cliffs, but we made it. Beautiful waterfall and swimming hole. We all goofed around in the cold water and watched crazy guys jump from the boulders.
