Camping with 2 Under 2

The best thing about camping is you get to be really, really dirty. No one cares. Except maybe my mom. I must say though, that she dealt with it rather well. My favorite thing to do was gather rocks and draw in the dirt with sticks. I also liked playing with the flashlight and climbing in and out of the tent. -Blondie

These are the faces I usually get when I have the camera. Confused and annoyed, but they tolerate it. -The Mrs.

Camping with The Mrs is like being with a hyper little kid. I was trying to relax around the fire and she was running around with the hatchet chopping down the forest. -Easy E

Blondie woke us all up before 5am. She was screaming because Dad put a blanket over her head. He was pretty obsessive about keeping her warm. I slept great and was a little sweaty in the 30 degree temp. I was in the sleeping bag with Mom. It was too cold for Blondie so we all got in the car. The parents drove as Big Sis and I slept. -Mae

Before heading home we hiked down into Tonto Natural Bridge. Easy loves this sort of thing and in order to get the full effect he has to get the history about it. I just enjoy the scenery and being with my 3 favorite people. The bridge was beautiful. It is the largest natural bridge in the world and has only been open to the public for 20 years. You are allowed to climb over and through the travertine to the other side. E went about halfway. -The Mrs

It looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I'm totally excited now. We'll definitely have to go soon (after winter time though). That first picture of Ava is so great. It's such a gorgeous picture. Maybe you'll have to start taking pictures of my kids for me.

rebecca,
i got it off hotslings.com and i absolutely love it. it was like the best $50 i have ever spent. it only bothers me when i have been wearing it over an hour or so. when i put mae in it she falls right to sleep. you order a size based on your measurements, so it's custom to your body. man, they should hire me!

Hayley--you should win mother of the year...camping is hard enough work when it's just adults...but with TWO kids!! That's awesome! We weren't brave enough this year....maybe someday.

I can't believe you went camping with the kids! We still haven't done that yet and our kids are 4 and 2! You and Eric really are brave ones!
