Here are 3 of the 4 little boys... and Maggie.
Cole and his daddy getting the hotdogs ready to cook.
Does this say trouble to you?
Dinner time! Here's one of the campsites eating.
Jack LOVED the marshmallows.
As did Egan.
They also enjoyed sticks, both large and small.
After dinner, the kids made s'mores over a charcoal fire. We weren't allowed to have a "real" one because of all the wild fires around right now. I don't really think they minded though.
I don't think these look like the faces of unhappy campers, do you?
If you look really closely, you will notice Egan eating a tomato while all the other kids chow on yummy s'mores. Who is this kid?!? I should also note that they were making s'mores with Reeses as the chocolate. HELLO!
Look, it's a wagon full of boys!
We had a successful first night. I don't think any of the kids were ready for bed, but eventually the campsite was quiet. I say quiet, but I don't think anyone slept all that great. It was freezing overnight!
Saturday morning, part of our crew went to see the animals at Fossil Rim. Egan and I have been several times, but it was a first for everyone else!
This goat was in the petting zoo. Egan actually did pet it, and wasn't too scared... till it stood up. Party was over after that.
Here's Jake and his parent's petting some little goats.
Marshall and Egan pretending they are goats by climbing the rocks.
Here's a baby giraffe we got to feed.
Isn't he cute!?
Then a "Daddy giraffe" (as Egan called it) came up to eat through our sunroof. His legs were as tall as the SUV we were riding in!
Amazingly, neither Marshall or Egan were scared of this LARGE giraffe sticking his nose into our car!
We also saw this sweet little baby zebra. He was so tiny!
We avoided this guy at all costs. SCARY!
Here's a sweet little wildebeest we saw.
And who I'd guess is his mommy. I just love all the new animals that are out in the Spring!
Here are a couple fun shots we took late Saturday night.
That is what you can get when you have a several minute long exposure and some glowsticks. No editing done here. You wouldn't know it, but these pictures were taken in the pitch dark by moonlight! See the star moving across the sky in the picture below?
We had so much fun in the outdoors with sweet friends. I can't wait for our next trip! Well, maybe I CAN wait. I'm not ready to do it all again soon, but I can say that this won't be our only camping trip Egan gets to enjoy!
