This was our second attempt at camping since Ashlyn was born. The first time was miserable for all parties involved. But this time was so much more fun. We left Friday, October 19th and planned on camping 2 night, but only made it one night.
We camped at Stoneman Lake and it was beautiful during the day. Low 70's high 60's. The night time was a whole different story. It was COLD! It was in the mid 30's. We were all bundled and the kids stayed warm but me and Chris could not get rid of the chill. Stony lent us his tent heater for the kids which helped a lot. I probably would have stayed warm if I hadn't gotten sick in the middle of the night and had to keep getting up to go outside.
Needless to say we decided the one night was enough and we came home Saturday evening.
Even though the night was cold and we didn't sleep, we still had an amazing time. Caiden LOVED getting dirty and playing with the other kids and just running free. Ashlyn hardly complained we set up her play yard and she enjoyed the out doors as well.
The boys practiced shooting the bows Granddad Tony brought, The girls watched and sat around the fire just relaxing and having a good time.
Tony and Sherry also knew of a zip line near by, so we took the kids there to have some zip line fun.
Overall it was a good trip =)

He kept yelling faster and for me to let go
I let go and he loved it
