Camping with the kiddos!

it was our first time BUT definitely not our last...

This was our first, family camping trip and we will be doing this A LOT! The boys did not want to leave and neither did we! We went fishing, went on long walks around the lakes, watched movies at the outdoor theatre, went swimming and did water slides for HOURS, built a fire and cooked on the fire pit! Such a blast! We decided to bring NO toys, so they were forced to play with rocks, sticks and pine cones...no fighting and it was WONDERFUL :) Ha! Since it's not the peak of summer just yet, the place was pretty empty and totally quiet! In the evenings, we sat outside and let the boys explore the campgrounds and find bugs, birds and even a beaver! There are more pics on http://mcclellenmemories.blogspot.com, our family blog if you'd like to check them out!!


*I had received some samples of Paper Shower and decided to bring them along on our trip! How perfect! If I didn't feel like showering (how can you blame me, we were roughing it!), I pulled out a Paper Shower and ALL CLEAN!! Just to tell ya a little about them, because I totally think I'll buy them in the future. They are a wet/dry towelette used as a refreshing wash up without soap and water! Great for travelers, campers, athletes and parents too! And after using one, I actually felt refreshed...crazy, right? But it's true! I felt like a true "camper" with these towelettes and if you and your family are planning a trip soon, you should try them too! They retail at a $1 each, which I think is reasonable so go to www.papershower.com and
order yours today!

I love it when we go camping (which is hardly ever), but the kids can just wander around in nature...it's the best! Crazy and funny, but I'm this week's Follow This Mother...check it out.
