Brett's First Camping Trip!

A few weekends ago, Drew and I took Brett to Withrow Springs State Park for his first camping trip. We joined our friends the McClung's, who graciously let us borrow a tent and a couple of sleeping bags. They have a nice camper and were happy to let us use their old equipment AND crash their campsite! Brett went to preschool with Marlowe and they have become pretty good buddies.

Withrow is only about 45 minutes from the house but it seems a world away in the middle of the forest! The campsite was beautiful and there was plenty for the kids to do. They explored the creek, swam at the pool, played in the woods and fished in the larger, War Eagle Creek.

swimming with Marlowe.. the water was cold!

burning a few sticks.. Marlowe is much more cautious ;)

and, of course, a turtle.

Shortly after this campout we found out that we'd be getting PawPaw Bo and WeWe's popup camper!!! Yay for no more sleeping in a tent! We can't wait to get out there again and take Reese :)

Reese's 2nd Birthday!

Wow, I'm a bad blogger! It's been a while.. 

Here are a few pics from Reese's 2nd birthday. We had a neighborhood party with a few friends on Reese's actual birthday and a family party at Nana's the weekend after. She doesn't look happy in the pictures but I think she had a good time!

Loving Every Minute!

It's so nice to have NO set plans! We are enjoying swimming, beach-going, watching cartoons (and football) and relaxing. The beach has been great since the rain moved out!
