Dirt, Bugs, and Sleeping Bags....



You guessed it! We went camping! I can't describe how much my boys love camping. It's like Christmas kind of. They walk around all day with a huge smile on their face, loving what is going on. They love the dirt, the food, the bugs, the animals, and sleeping in a tent! TJ hates being dirty! We only go for one night so we can come back and shower. I'm a little different. I'm not gonna lie, sometimes after a really hard volleyball practice, I would come home and jump right into bed without a shower. Not that I don't like a good shower! We are just a little different!

The crazy parents.

TJ went back home and took Hayden to his Mom's house. He was a whiny camper!

Grandpa made this bench for the boys...

Carter trying to wake Tanner up! That's why Tanner isn't in any of the pictures, he was still in bed!
Dad and Tan roasting mallows!

Can you see the layer of dirt on his face? :)


Carter and Meesh, the Gangsters!

What a fun trip! Until next year....

Very cute pic's. We have yet to try "real" camping. We set up the tent in the backyard this summer and that's as close to camping as we've gotten. :)

Are all of your Pickleville shows sold out? I know we're cutting it close but are trying to figure out how we can make it down there. Rod's schedule is a bit on the insane side these days but maybe me and the girls will come. Let me know if you have anything left. Thanks!

Very cute, Erin!

Guess what? I met Mr. Thompson's daughter. She lives here in Rochester. She was so embarrassed when she found out that I took driver's ed from her 'crazy' dad. I thought of you!

I'm more on TJ's side on this one... not such a fan of being dirty (or sleeping with the bugs)... but yay for you guys for getting out there and taking your little guys camping. Those will be great memories for them in the years to come.

That looks like sooo much fun! Zachary asks every day when we can go camping. We have a yearly tradition of camping in Logan Canyon/Picklville/Bear Lake every July, but this year we were not able to swing it. :(

Your camp trip looks like it was a lot of fun! Tell TJ to get a little dirtier...:)
