Well I finally got Rich to unload the camera from this summer........a man job in my book, I should have him teach me, but everyone needs to be needed, right? The boys, (Rich and Logan) went on a 50 mile hike with the scouts!! They love that kind of thing, hiking is one thing, but 50 miles sounds like torture to me!! They survived, and what an acomplishment.
We had our anual week long camping trip with family and great friends, real camping, none of this campground thing. We drive off road, about 23 miles to get to "our spot." Rich found the greatest place a few years ago, we usually don't see another person, it's great!! We take quads up, and it is our favorite thing to do with our kids. They love no chores, riding, and getting dirty, no baths, lots of snacking, great meals, and GREAT company! It's surprising, but they never get bored. They run and play all day. I love it because I sit around all day and rarely get up. Ivy did really well, she wasn't crawling yet, and was quite content sitting on my lap, or in her bumbo seat. She slept great, too! She has her dad's heart, and she loved rocking on the hammock with him. He is always so great with the kids...especially the babies.
