camping...Williams and Megilligan style
these two look a bit serious about the map, don't they? :)
spent some time hiking trails
this little guy cracks me up. daily. he brought his canteen, compass, and bug backpack. he was ready for "camping". :)
my boys THRIVE outside, in the woods, on a trail, exploring. i guess that's what boys do! they loved having good friends to explore with.
aren't these two cute! Jackson decided to try on Addison's hat. :) Lindsey was too cute. she was SO excited about snakes, bugs, spiders. i couldn't believe it. at one point her mom and i were talking about how we couldn't believe she loved all those things and she said "i just love God's nature." how sweet is that! :)
waiting for the hot dogs. after we ate, Anthony took the boys on another trail and he said Austin and Harrison just talked and talked and talked. i know Harrison enjoyed being with another boy who loves the outdoors as much as he does. :) Brian and Reese worked on the fire for s'mores, Lindsey pushed Addison in the stroller, and Janet and I looked for wood and sticks to roast our marshmallows! :)
Brian was trying to take a picture of me before this with marshmallow on my chin. s'mores are messy y'all! :)
we had the BEST time at Umstead Park this past Saturday afternoon with the Megilligan's. we love this family and have been wanting to get together as a family for a long time. we finally came up with a plan and it was perfect!
Janet and i laughed that this was probably as close to camping our families will ever get. i do love to hike and be outdoors with the boys but i think sleeping outside is where i have to draw the line. i want my bed...or A BED. :)
and we all hadn't had s'mores in a while...they were SO GOOD!!! thanks Megilligan's, looking forward to the next time! :)
