First Family Campout

A few weekends ago we went camping for the first time as a family at Tyler State Park.  Blake loves the outdoors where he can totally be a boy! 
Recently Mike bought a new tent...and I have to admit I really like it! It is enormous and has two for our stuff and one to sleep in!

My parents were such great troopers! My dad is not a fan of camping (or especially being cold...I guess that is who I get it from) but he will do anything for his grandson:)
One thing I also really love about camping is that Mike does ALL the cooking! It sure was yummy!
This park really is BEAUTIFUL and a great place to go for a hike!

I think having two boys in our family there will be lots of camping in our future! I am learning to love it and would not miss this fun opportunity with the two guys I adore:)

Those are great pictures! We'll have to get our families together to camp sometime. I think my boys would love it!

OK, I am just verifying that the "having two boys" comment referred to Mike and Blake and was not some subtle way to announce you are having a boy? I don't think you are far enough along to know that but I just needed to double check. How is potty training going? Missed you at BSF.

That's funny...I read your comment the same way Christa did but then realized it wasn't possible yet. Hmm...if it's a girl, she's going to have to learn to love camping too! I bet after the camping trip, Mike is even more in love with you. =)

When I wrote it I thought it might be misleading but was to lazy to re-word it! Yes, I was referring to Mike and Blake...hopefully we will know in a month or so!

I really like Tyler State Park! One time, in our 1st year of marriage we were really bored on a work night so we decided to pack it all up and camp out one night! Random! We got up and made ourselves a good campfire breakfast and headed back home in time to get ready for work! Ha! Thought I'd share w/you! :-)

Great pics of your family campout!! Have I told you that we're planning a family trip to CO this summer? Ton wants to go there since she's prego and will be needing to escape the summer heat.
We are really going to miss spending time with you and Blake. And I equally hate that I won't be here to see baby #2 when it arrives.
