Taking a five month old and a two and a half year old anywhere, I mean camping, for five days is a gamble. This time around we came out on top. I am so impressed and so in love with my little family. 

Camping and being outside are two things that Jarod and I are quick to agree on and can do well together. So to celebrate the end of his semester, we threw our tent, some sleeping bags, a dog and the two cutest kids I know, into the Pilot and headed north east to the Adirondack Mountains. 
It was a laid back, low key, low expectation family trip. We ate meals around the campfire, went on a few hikes, saw a waterfall, played in the river, had a fox visit, learned to poop by trees, ate a lot of "golden bwown" marshmallows, played in the dirt and pine needles, weathered rain and wind, and watched Daddy climb "waaaay up high". Charlie Ann had some of her cutest sayings thus far.. Including, "I so excited!" "A lottttttta times" "woasted mashmawwows". Completely adorable. She was genuinely thrilled about every part of the trip. Tripp was a trooper too. He was teething most of the time, which meant more nursing through the night, but otherwise, he loved being outside too. 

Let's keep our fingers crossed that these kiddos will do this well again in another month or two :)
