I am still trying to adjust being a mother of 2....and a good wife to my amazing husband....so, pardon the lack of posting...some things are just more important right now than sitting in front of the computer. I'd rather be interacting with Noah while he still WANTS me to play with him...or just sitting with James...because I know all to well how fast they grow up. Seriously, it seems like we have a little man in our house, not a preschool aged son. ;(
All that said...let's get down to updating.
A few weeks ago, Jon's friend Wade (who happens to be an extremely avid rock climber) invited our entire family to go camping with him for a night. Jon, after asking Wade multiple times if he knew what he was getting himself into camping with a family of 4(...2 of the persons going being under the age of 3), told him yes we'd love to go!
So, we took off...our goal for the camping trip was to find some great climbing rocks for Wade to visit in the future.
Wade has this super cool van, not much bigger than ours, but it's a camper. So, the hood has a pop-up feature that sleeps 2 peeps up top and then 2 more on the seat(that turns into a bed) This van is complete with a stove, fridge and table! Yep, I loved it!
We had a blast. I was extremely sore by the end of the trip from all the uphill hiking we did...but it was worth it to hang out with the best boys in the world! (Wade..included;) )
It has to be said that these "rocks" are very illusive...although pretty enormous...they are quite hidden in the woods...so it took lots and lots of hiking and land navigation skills to find them.
Here's the boys as we are about to embark on our 2 1/2 hour car ride to the rocks. :) Jon graciously sat crammed in the middle of the boys' carseats....don't be fooled, it really was quite roomy, just not with 2 big carseats in the back.
And..the big boys...bc let's face it, they truly act like little giddy boys when they get to go "outside and play with the rocks" :)And us after a great meal...chicken pasta cooked right inside the van. :)
And, surprisingly, Wade said he had a great time with our little family at the end of the trip!
I will leave you with a smile...from James:)
Updates on him to follow...
