Camping trips!

OK so here are some pictures from our last two weekends of camping. I know I was a little crazy going camping TWICE being 8 months pregnant but hey I love camping. The first weekend was a family reunion with Jason's extended family and the second was my family (parents and three siblings and their families). We had a great time both weekends and loved being up on Mt Graham. Who can argue with 70 degrees, cool breezes and shady trees. Anyway here are some pictures of our fun.

I know they look like beer bottles but one of the treats we enjoy when camping is Henry Weinharts Root Beer. If you haven't tried it, do, it is sooo good!!! Tolson had fun playing with the bottles and making Beer goggles!!!
My sister brought her Quad and the kids had great fun taking rides on it. We camped up from an organized site so we had to go get water and take the trash down and this came in very handy.

Tolson loved playing with his older cousins. They are so good with the little ones and are always willing to help. We roasted hot dogs for lunch one day and the kids had a great time.
These are pictures from the first weekend(sorry they are in the wrong order)

This is Tolson playing with his Favorite Uncle Neil. After camping on the Mt we came down to Safford and had a swim party /BBQ and he loved playing in the water. What a great uncle to take him around and help him swim! They both had a great time!

This is Tolson with his cousin Amulek. They are great pals and loved exploring and chasing bugs. they were taking bread out to the woods to feed the animals. I hope they remember these adventures together.
So that was our fun weekends camping on the beautiful Mt. Graham. It was hard to come back to the heat of Tucson but we will survive (I think) camping and being pregnant wasn't too bad I just had to remember not to wear myself out too much. We definitely ate too much food but we went on a lot of adventure walks and explored with the kids. I have wonderful memories of camping growing up and hope that I can give my kids the same fun adventures! If any of you ever want to get out there and make some camping memories call us and we would be happy to go with you. Happy Camping!!!!!
