Memorial Weekend Camp-Out

The weather's been great lately so we decided to head up to the mountains for a quick camping trip. We love going to McGaffey; it's quiet, there are tall trees, green grass, wildflowers. It's just so soul-refreshing! This time was also special because it's the last time I'll be able to go for a while. We enjoyed playing in the meadow, hiking to the fire-tower, chocolate bananas, and just being together as a family. Some friends joined us (unplanned) and it was a great surprise, and fun to hang out at the fire together after the boys went to sleep. The only thing we need to improve upon is our sleeping arrangements - the nights get COLD up in the mountains, and we ended up with the boys in a sleeping bag with each of us (that was a tight squeeze for me and Garrett).

We made it!

Chocolate bananas!

The boys decided their shirts were too dirty to keep them on
