A weekend of CAMPING!

We were invited to go camping with the lovely
for the weekend.

Coming from a family who enjoys
cruise ships & Marriott
this camping trip was a FIRST for
Me and Miss.
(i have gone with the Frames before, but never with Ry)

I must admit this was no 5 star hotel
it was a heated trailer with
power, showers, warm water, toilet,
cozy beds... you get it.

If Jessica would have told me about the
newly hatched grass hoppers that ruled our camping
turf I think I would have gratefully declined her
offer, but she was "clueless" about this fact.
Upon arrival and opening the car door to fund
who greeted our capris and flip flops.
It took me a few minutes to step out of the car
and bravely conquer these nasty creatures
I had to be brave around shorty since I have already
terrified her of worms:)
I only screamed softly a couple times.
I unbuckled the Diva and held her hand across the
grass when she realized there were jumping bugs
She insisted that I pick her up and hold her tight.
(were such girly girls... sad)
Once she was finally comfortable to get down she would say
"excuse me little grass hoppers"
I laughed a little.

Rylee and her other half, Aspen love to
just as "sisters" should.
This trip was free of most torture because the
outdoors has no room for ATTITUDE:)
They had a great time together
which means...
We all had a great time together!

Aspen's 4 wheeler that the girls played on

Whats camping without a mouth
and a fist
FULL of Jerkey??

Stylin' Ry ready for a long Saturday ride!

(Ry, Mommy, Jessica, Irelynn, and Elle)

We packed lunch and headed out Saturday
for a long wheelin ride!
It was a BLAST for everyone!
The weather sucked as you can see by our
clothing but the company was great and the
scenery reminded me of home.
~Mt. Vernon, WA~

One stop was along a creek.
Miss and I brought our handy, dandy,
and you better believe we
stomped around in them throwing pine cones, rocks, flowers,
leaves, branches... pretty much anything we could find
that might float down some fast moving water!

Ry and her mommy

some slept...
Aspen slept due to a short night sleep, and a
relaxing ride.

...some played...

... and played...

... when Aspen awoke, we played some more!

the water was Freezing, but
KIDS didn't seem to mind.

Exhausted Ry finally fell asleep with a bouquet of
hand picked
The trip was a success
and if were ever invited again we will gladly
tag along!
Thanks for the fun trip
and a warm trailer!
