Camping Trip 2!

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!  We were lucky enough to get a camping spot last Thursday night and stayed out through Monday.  It was super busy the first couple of nights but by Sunday afternoon a lot of people had left.  The weather was nice the entire weekend AND it had rained enough the past few weeks that we were able to have a fire every night!

This is our sweet new table/checkerboard that Ryan ordered off of steepandcheap.com.  We have got to be some of the company's top customers.  It's a great site for outdoor gear deals.

Here is China falling asleep while Ryan cuts sap out from in between her paws. 

Here is China hiding under the camper gnawing on the greasy towel she found.


The "noxious fumes" (Ryan's term not mine) from the delicious, spicy shrimp boil that almost gassed us out of the camper while playing dominoes.  Note to self:  no matter how chilly it is outside, make sure air is circulating through the camper before making spicy food.

We took the dogs hiking one day and China and Peanut didn't make it so far so we had to take them back to the campsite and leave again with Mojo.  Sweet China tuckered out first and got carried for a large portion of the walk back and once Peanut realized China was getting carried she just sat down right in the middle of the road and wouldn't go further.  We put a dog pack on Mojo (another great buy from Steep and Cheap) and he carried our lunch on the hike.

Unfortunately, Mojo couldn't figure out that he was a wider load with the pack on and this is what our chips ended up looking like.

Next time we will be packing all of our food in hard containers.

At one point over the weekend, I stepped inside the camper and when I came back out I caught Ryan jumping the biggest rock at the campsite with his bike.  It made me think/giggle about the little kids in our neighborhood that make ramps to jump with their bikes and skateboards.  Reaffirmation that boys never do grow up.

Here are a couple more pictures from our long weekend.  We had such a great time!
