Happy 4th of July!

We went camping for the 4th of July weekend with our friends, the Ransoms and their kiddos, JJ and Jordyn. We went up to Coeur D'Alene and had a great shady campsite that was right off the lake. This was Gabe's first camping trip and we were blown away by how well he did. He played in the dirt all day long with JJ and slept like a champ. He was pretty into eating sticks and rocks and he got to try things he doesn't normally eat, like hot dogs and eggs, yum!

Nothing better than eating in the outdoors (also makes for some easy clean up for moms and dads!)

Mike and Josh in the paddle boat, before they decided it was too much work. They traded this in for a canoe after a couple of hours. Melissa and I took Jordyn out in the canoe, but since I'm the primary picture taker in the family, you don't get to see any proof of our canoeing skills. :)

Heading home (I had to get a picture of poor Gabe stuffed in the back seat)

what a little doll. He doesn't look like he minds being crammed in the back seat with all the camping gear!!!
