Spring Break Camping

We spent last weekend with Eric's parents and sister's family at Lake Whitney.  McGown Park is beautiful and the camping spots were nice and big. 

When we arrived at the campground, we learned the burn ban was in effect and all fires were prohibited including charcoal grills.  Since we had only brought food to grill, we ran to town to buy a table top propane grill.  It worked great!  I didn't miss the campfire one bit.

We kids were B U S Y all day long.  The boys loved playing pirates on the playscape.  Aren't they tough?

We sat around in a circle and played a game where we told a story one word at a time.  The stories we came up with were quite entertaining!  Gege brought paint and the kids had fun painting rocks.

Gege and the girls painted Lauren's toes for the first time.  She was so excited!


We kept ourselves entertained by going on wagon rides, playing patty cake, throwing the frisbee and playing three different kinds of games with balls.

Eric's parents took their boat, so we went fishing on the lake.  Ethan discovered he no longer wants to be a fisherman.

Austin loved driving the boat.  Ok, he loved pretending to drive the boat.

Gege caught two fish and I caught one.  Woo hoo!


The boys put on a puppet show with the foam animals they made.  It was so cute! 

Ethan and Austin love their cousin Jake.  They had the best time running around together all weekend. 

It was the perfect camping weekend!  The kids had a great time playing together.  Jake, Ethan and Austin were inseparable and Emmy and Abby were so good with Lauren.  The adults got to relax a bunch and enjoy watching the kids. We already miss everyone and can't wait to see them again!
