his words were balanced on my knife

this past weekend we went camping with some friends. it was a good time – anyone who knows us knows we are die-hard camping lovers (we even went camping on our honeymoon!), and the boys had a blast. but i gotta say…it’s a lot of work! the cooking and food organizing was a job in itself, and doing it while chasing a 3-year-old (especially one who is totally obsessed with the campfire) was pretty tiring. and of course i had to get my period right before we left. but we still had a lot of fun – the evenings were filled with eating and s’morin’ and chatting around the fire, and saturday we spent the day at a nearby beach.

the boys loved helping pants put up the tent.

and sharkey was totally obsessed with his flashlight the entire weekend. even when it was light out.
our tent:

our campsite: (love shark on the trike)

the view:i know he’s not a baby anymore, but i still want to eat him. so squishy and delicious in his button-down shirt.

sky was really into helping make the fire. i think he was trying to use his magical powers to get one started.

i guess it worked.
i don’t know what happened here. but i’m pretty sure it happened while pants was watching the kids.
at least they slept great!
this is becoming a familiar sight, unfortunately…
i gotta say i’m loving how sharkey is getting pretty attached to pants lately.
me and the boys looking for crabs…
…do dead ones count?

  2. Love it! The pic of Shark with his pants down cracks me up. I also love his ‘closeness’ with his dad. So cute, no wonder you want to gobble him up. (:
    And Skylar is so big boy with the fire. Your fam is so adorable!
