Beach Trip

So I've fallen out of the blogosphere for a bit.  Sometimes you just have to do that.  Other things needed more priority....but that is a another blog post in itself.  So, for now, I'll share some pictures of our first ever camping trip with the boys!  Yes, you heard right, the city folks went camping and lived to tell about it.  The low point of the trip was having seagulls poop in the hot dog dinner that Eric was grilling up for us. Oh and in the process they pooped on him as well.  So needless to say the city folks moved to plan B and opted for pizza at a nearby pizzeria.  Being that our first night there the winds were at 20-25 mph, dinner really did work out for the best.  We did manage to cook other meals during our camping trip without bird droppings.  But,  I made a definite note to self that a canopy of some sort is highly beneficial for future camping trips!!! We even had a squirrel adopt us for a couple days.

He came running anytime he heard food bags rattling.  Eric even fixed him a bowl of cereal our last morning there.  And the squirrel, Sparkey, as we nicknamed him.....climbed up on the picnic table to eat some! All in all the trip was a success.  Couldn't have asked for better weather.  The boys didn't want to go home and are secretly plotting together on how to get us back out there again.  Austin was even brainstorming up ways to raise money so that he can buy another camping trip asap! He is determined!! Going to sleep to sound of ocean waves is highly addictive.....I'm secretly plotting our next camping trip in my mind too..... :)
