Bella seem to be the winner as far as "who could wear the most dirt!" No matter how many times she got wiped off that darn dirt would just come back. I think the crunchy part of all her food became second nature by the end.
Grandma Jan found some great things down by the ocean for all of us to look at! She is always teaching even when she's not at work so we all learn from her...
The camping trip was right by the beach up in Fort Bragg and it was so beautiful. It was so nice to be in the cool air and away from the heat of Roseville. It never got above 70 degrees while we were there and it was freezing at night.
Even the older kids thought that playing in the dirt was the funnest thing to do. I guess they had to take full advantage cause this never happens at home. The boys didn't want to shower the entire time. This really was camping at it's fullest.
Holding her for four days straight sure does take a toll on your back! Where's my sister Camey when I need her?
I of course didn't pack enough clothes for all the kids. I somehow got out of the apartment without any pants or underwear for Brooklyn so towards the end she was wearing Blake's stuff. It is almost like we have three little boys running around camp. The girls end up wearing old boys clothes every year.
Emry has come with us to each camping trip to Fort Bragg. This is the third year we have done this. The kids all have enough junk food to eat themselves sick. But we of course make sure the get real food also...
And more trees
This was the first year Dallas came with us and he did a great job! I was so happy he was able to come with us this year...
Grandpa Marc was a great hand cleaner, no matter how much dirt they got into he would find them sooner or later!
She went around picking flowers and giving them to
everyone who would take one.
Joe and Ben were playing pass and Joe managed to throw the ball at the same time that Ben was jumping over a huge log. So when Ben turned to look up and the football smacked him right under the eye. Of course it has to be the end of the ball that hit him in the eye!
We only get these once in a while, usually one of us are the one behind the camera. Ben has to take it, my arm is to short and I always cut one of us out...Even on camping trips you can end up with twins outfits on accident. Bella and Auntie Kalynn dressed in yellow stripes and overalls.
We need a vacation from our vacation!
That's when she decides that two hands and the mouth provided great coverage and insurance not losing it again. She kept track of it for the rest of the bath and made sure this toy was hers once the sister's got in the tub!
