4th of July Camping

On the 4th of July we set out for an extreme camping adventure. "Why was it so extreme?" you might ask. Well, when you're taking a two-year-old and a three-month-old out into the middle of the woods it's going to get extreme. Extremely little sleep to be exact.
Actually, the girls slept just about as well in the woods as at home, meaning Ginny slept well and Violet didn't sleep. We were joined by the Grismore clan in its entirety. Activities included making smores, foraging for fire wood (we burned some seriously wet and mossy stuff), playing by the stream, hiking in the high mountains, and general laziness and tom-foolery. You can check it all out in the montage.
For those of you keeping score at home, this was North Fork campground 20 mintues outside of Randle, WA and we were there three days and two nights.
p.s. theres a funny video at the end of the montage, if you can make it there.

Bri, you are so brave to go camping with little kids! I wish I could be more like you! I LOVE camping, but haven't gone since I was four months pregnant with Julia! Nice montage, you guys took some pretty cool pictures!

Glad you had fun, even though you didn't sleep much. We'll be taking Jilly camping for one night in a few weeks, and I'm nervous about it. I think our friend Mr. Benadryl will be along from the trip. ;-)
