Happy Campers

Our weekend of camping went much better than I would have expected, quite thankfully. The weather was beautiful and Adrian was wonderful.

I got a taste of what life will be like from here on out; when we arrived at the campground, Jeff and I each received a brief "Hi!" before being shoved out of the way to get to Adrian. This was the first time Auntie Jenny and Uncle Dave (and Dave's girlfriend Jenna) were able to see him so we were just his ride there for all
they cared! ;) As you can imagine, he wasn't put down very often.

This camping trip is all about the fishing for the guys (and maybe some of the girls too) so they were up before dawn every morning and out til nightfall every evening. Jeff caught a 10lb salmon (estimate) on the last day so we've had fish the past two nights. That was the only fish that was caught for the weekend. Better luck next year!

In recent years, the boys brought the boat back to the campsite for the day
and we'd spend some time on the beach. This year, they decided to anchor it off shore instead (the boat launch is about 15 minutes away) and go tubing. The kids (and mom and dad!) had fun tubing around the bay in their new flat topped tube. It looked like fun but Adrian and I stayed on shore and watched. Or, I watched and Adrian slept!
