Ticks and Frogs and Bears...Oh, My!

We had our first family camping trip this weekend! It rained a little soon after we got there, but that did not dampen our spirits!

I told Garrett that camping was cool because the boys could pee pee in the woods! He thought that was great until we discovered 2 ticks in his underwear region...1 in a specifically not-so-fun to remove spot!

We roasted marshmallows, cooked hotdogs and did a little bear hunting! Garrett and Charlotte were just sure we would see a bear!

  • Me: "I'm hope we don't see any bears...I would be scared!"
  • Garrett: "Mommy, I'm not scared because God is always with us! If we do find one, can I ride on his back?"

I'm pretty sure this is as much hiking as Nana and Poppy have EVER done!





We made some "Snores" as Garrett called them!

And found a few frogs after the rain!








Silly 'ole kids!

And, just to prove to you that I actually WAS there:

Cute! (except the part about the ticks - ouch!)
I love that Garrett pulled out a good old Sunday School truth from a few months ago. ;)
