I'm not much of a camper, but Emilia saw a few shows about it and it was all she could talk about so we decided to try out a camping trip with her cousins. We couldn't get reservations for just a Saturday night, but we headed up into the mountains anyway to see what we could get. I got discouraged when Spruces had a "Campground Full" sign outside, but we checked it out anyway and they happened to have one site with two tent spots- a really nice site with good shade. Ethan and his family were right behind us so we all got to the spot at the same time.

We set up our tents and then took the kids exploring. It wasn't a far walk to find some water.

After a while, we went back to the camp site. It was getting  a little chilly so Emilia put on her cute camp shirt.

Soon, Damma and PapPaps came up for dinner. Of course, the kiddos wanted to explore some more so the grandparents took turns taking them for walks. After dinner, we started a campfire and made s'mores. James insisted he was a marshmallow roasting expert and had to give everyone samples.

The night was a little rough. Emilia sometimes gets night terrors and it's hard to calm her down. She loved the idea of sleeping in a tent, but I'm sure it was a little confusing. She only asked to go home once though and after looking at a bunch of pictures on Joe's phone, she finally settled down.

In the morning, we saw some cute/naughty squirrel behavior.

And this guy was eating a marshmallow he had stolen and stashed the night before

I think everyone had a great time and we had more fun the next day- Silver Lake post to come!
