Over Memorial Day weekend we joined two other families for a camping trip...or was that a guys weekend with their dirt bikes and the wives and children tagged along? I'm not too sure :)
We went just an hour and a half away near a lake in Oklahoma. When we crossed the boarder Bergen was SO excited and very excitedly told me we were now in "Olohomo!!!" Hilarious!
Camping was fun and a good (but incredibly muddy) overall experience for our first family camping adventure. But holy cow! It's so much work getting ready and then recovering from it afterwards. While we were camping Bergen could not stay out of he mud! We would get him cleaned up and not 5 minutes later he would be muddy again. All of the kids were that same way! The first day I was mad and frustrated about it. I finally asked Bergen why he wouldn't stay out of it and he said because it was so much fun. Then I figured out I just needed to embrace the muddy mud. It was better after that, well not the mud, he was still muddy, but my attitude was better.
The men took their dirt bikes riding on nearby trails...in the mud :) Travis had a good time doing that.
The girls took the kids thru the mud to the lake, kept the kids entertained, oh and cleaned up a lot of mud :) Have I mentioned the mud?! All mud aside, we had a great time and were so glad we could go!
