Last Thursday we arrived home from camping only to have a whirlwind of a weekend and leave again on Tuesday of this week to go visit my sister and her family for three days. We just got back last night and let's just say it's good to know we'll soon be back to a little bit of a normal routine. I think I realized how much I thrive off a routine and when it gets a little out of whack, I'm not quite sure how to handle it all. It's something I'll keep working on (being spontaneous and having a "go with the flow" kind of attitude), but it's definitely something I'll by no means ever master!
In an effort to get caught up, here are some pictures from the camping trip the four of us took last week. It was a fun, frustrating, funny, and full of firsts kind of camping experience! The best part about the trip was seeing the excitement in everything that Mikayla and Austin experienced. I would do it again in a heartbeat just to see that!
There were moments I realized that TENT camping with a 2-year old who has moments of resistance (to put it nicely) and a 3-year old with a little sass may not have been the greatest idea, but we did survive. Not only did we survive, but we also realized that our mini van is pretty soundproof in a pinch.
I'm not sure but I think when I looked in our rear view mirror as we were driving away to head back home, I saw our camping neighbors doing a little happy dance.
Yea, I'm pretty sure they were.
