We recently enjoyed a fantastic camping trip about three hours south, in Big Sur. Our friends the Adairs reserved a beautiful group site and invited half the ward—and cooked for all of us! They were a flawless team, making cooking for seven little families look like just another day at the campground. AMAZING!
Trenton enjoyed lots of time with his BFF, Colton. They spent an entire evening either running from (imaginary) tigers or climbing this huge rock.
T actually asked me to go get the camera after submitting it first thing in the morning.
Roasted marshmallows for breakfast—why not??
After packing up Saturday morning, we drove just a few miles to Pfieffer Beach. These two cuties spent plenty of time screaming "RUN!" and sprinting from the waves.
I wish this beach was a little closer than three hours because it was gorgeous AND kid friendly. :) The still but clear water behind the boys in the above picture was perfect for them to play in. Not too deep, warmer than the ocean, and no crashing waves. As you can tell, Chase is really into smiling for the camera these days. Ha.
And sometimes T surprises me. :)
Even without preparing dinner or breakfast (thanks again, Nate and Annie!), camping is still unavoidably a lot of work. Ryan and I decided we're okay with a once-a-year camping trip for our family... At least for now. Although if all my friends are going (like they did this time), I could definitely be persuaded to up that number!
Last year's camping trip can be seen here and here.
