4th of July Camping

We went camping for a couple nights for the long weekend with some great friends. My children were pleasant and got up before 7 on both mornings, so while the rest of the camp slept and Ben and I started breakfast, mine went down to the sand and played. This way they didn't wake up the rest of the kids and adults, I wanted them to remain our friends. We had so much fun and went from dawn to dusk (or way past midnight for the adults). The kids swam, fished, played in the sand and on the paddle boat, sat by the fire, ate til they could eat no more and enjoyed being outside. Fireworks were the highlight of the weekend thanks to our friends Kraig and Melissa, Beau talks about them nonstop. It was a great trip and we can't wait to do it again next year. We are now on the lookout for a small pop-up camper that will make things a little easier then just tenting it.

Just for clarification, Luke is not looking at her butt in this picture he is watching her play with the fire poker.
Here he is examining his ladybugs, although Ben thought if he had a flower he was saying "she loves me, she loves me not" because his little friend Bridgette kept sitting next to him and then getting up over and over. It was cute with them both in the chair but she never sat long enough for me to grab the camera.
