Nothing Like the Great Outdoors...

We've been camping. I've always enjoyed camping. In fact, some of my favorite memories with my family and friends have been camping trips. I went to Girls' Camp 4 years in a row in high school. I was super excited to find that Eli also loved camping and we for sure wanted to pass on that love to our girls.

We've been camping three times so far this year with another two trips in the works. We just head down to our normal spot near Eli's hometown that works well for us. It's only 20 minutes from his parents, so they're able to join us for a dutch oven dinner once in awhile. Luci was excited to have her cousin Branson come visit last time.

Luci LOVES camping! She sleeps in her own sleeping bag on her own cot. We go on nature hikes and and do short canyon hikes. She loves to add things to her egg carton where she keeps her collections. And she LOVES fishing with Daddy. We were able to catch fish this last trip that we could actually use. Luci was a little sad when Eli showed her how to gut it, but she sure loved eating eat! 

There's so much to do and teach Luci and Gabi about. Not to mention it's just fun to watch them! I hope they always love the outdoors...
