Ward Campout

This weekend was the ward campout at Givens Hot Springs. We've never dared camp out with Avery, and the only camping Caden has done is in the backyard with Ryan. We decided to brave it and see how it went. Happily, we can say the kids did great. Avery loved running around with kids her size and Caden enjoyed his buddy Easton Fabrizio (which is why he isn't in any pictures - they ran around crazy the whole time). This was my kind of camping - a pool, outdoor bathrooms, grass...not a bad setup. Despite camp being right on the highway and hearing cars all night with a little airport right accross the street, the kids slept better than mom and dad. As soon as we got home, we put Avery down for a nap, a movie on for Caden and Ryan and I took naps.

we won't be camping with our kids for a while. lewis and greg went to the father's and sons outing with our stake and lewis wouldn't go to sleep until 11 pm and woke up at 5 am...luckily it was Greg and not me dealing with it :)...I am glad your kids did well...looks like a fun trip!

Glad things went well with Avery at night. Wish we could have been there. Looking forward to boating next week.

You really are brave! The thought of camping with kids sends terror to my heart. Ok, actually the thought of camping at all does that, but seriously--good job Grace Family!!
