Labor Day Weekend Camping!

This end of Summer camp trip is always our most favorite of all.  We go every year with my folks, and close family friends that are more like aunties and cousins to us.  Just the drive is the crappy part, 4 hours with young kids can be less than perfect.  This road trip was actually much easier though because we took our nephew Logan, and both girls just adore him!  Gia and Amira are both at the age to where they finally listen and don't go running off into the road!
My parents have been taking us camping here at Lake Mayfield for 20 years now.  Back in the day we started out in tents.  Then progressed to tent trailers and now they have a beautiful 5th wheel.  Amira bunked with them the first few nights.  She cant get enough of her grandparents and their new puppy Wyatt!
Mario and I have a camper and I'm so thankful for that.  My old aging body couldn't handle sleeping on the dirt floor!  This year our camper was full of kids coloring, goofing around, and more than I like to admit, watching Peppa Pig.  Gia is newly in love with this cartoon.  One fun things the kids were able to do was go jet skiing.  Or as I would say, Sea Doo'in.  I took Amira out on her first rides ever and it was a blast!  That girl likes to go full throttle, not surprised.  Now Mario is on Craigslist looking at Sea Doos, lol!
We did a couple camping trips this Summer and one log cabin excursion.  Getting outdoors and doing fun things with our girls are most important to us.  In the next few years I hope to have a tropical getaway with the hubs, I'm patiently awaiting our alone time ;)  Thank you for reading!
