Camping with small kids is so fun and so tiring! We went with our ward to Warm Springs and the kids loved it! Jeff and I drove separate since he works until 6pm and the rest of us were too excited to get the party started! It was awesome because Davis was so excited to camp he was eager to help me pack up the van! I didn't have to do it all by myself, yay!!
After we got there Friday we set up the tent and then the kids were ready to swim! I still feel like we're new in the ward- even though we've lived here 8 months!- so I asked my new friend Sam (she'd introduced herself like 20 minutes before haha) to hold Whitney while I took the older kids swimming since I didn't think I could handle all four at once. Later that night when she was giving her back she gushed over what a great baby she is! Yes, she is lovely :)
Swimming Friday was an adventure. Grayson was being weird and pretended he didn't know how to swim, chocked on some water and clung to me like a scaredy cat. It was super annoying. Luckily he warmed up after a little while and was swimming around like his fearless self.
It was good we left before Jeff, he didn't get there until 8pm! There weren't any activities planned so we just chatted with people getting to know them while the kids ran around crazy. The kids were having SO MUCH FUN, even after Leah cut her finger and Greg Headlee accidentally assaulted Davis with a large stick. Okay, Grayson was a complete crankster but Jeff laid by him until he fell asleep in the tent pretty early. What a good dad :)
Sleeping 6 in 1 tent was pretty rough. I kept feeling like Whitney would get cold if I didn't snuggle her but when I would she'd want to nurse so I was up all night! And I thought it was cold but the kids didn't seem to mind at all.
They were more than excited for their Saturday morning swim!
Whitney was sooo tired Saturday and fell asleep in her towel. EVERYONE who walked past her stroller commented on her beauty. Love it!
I've been feeling like Davis gets no video love so here he is swimming, well his version of swimming anyways :)
and Leah too:
We left Saturday around 1pm and it was a super busy afternoon, even though I was exhausted. Leah went to Anna's birthday party, Jeff and Davis drove to St. George and perused Doc's Book Loft and then Jeff took Leah to the Sandstone Stake's play performance. I was dead on my feet. I swear Friday night I didn't sleep a wink! It was crazy.
