Countdown to Camping

We go to Cass Lake on Thursday for a week of camping, fun in the sun and fun times with our families.  Eric’s entire family, my parents and also some family friends will all be there for this annual trip.  We are having Miss Avery baptized on July 18 on the sandbar where we got married 2 years ago – also on July 18th!  Dylan was baptized that same day, so we thought it would be special to have her baptized on the same date.  Her cousin Easton will also be baptized in the mythical Cass Lake at the same time.  Double baptism!  Very exciting!  : )  So anyway, we are looking forward to the next week of fun, but also very busy trying to get everything packed up and squared away.  Not Dylan though.  He’s busy talking about camping nonstop.  Yesterday morning I got his sleeping bag out for him and showed him how to use it.  This will be his first year actually sleeping in the tent in a sleeping bag.  His first year there, he did sleep in the tent, but in his pack and play.  Then the following 2 years, he slept in Gma and Gpa Puppy’s motorhome.  This year, he gets the boot so his sister can have the warmth and luxury of the motorhome.  She does have to tent it for one night though because Gma and Gpa are coming a day later than us.  This also means that I have to tent it for one night too!  Eek!  J/K!  I don’t mind.  I just worry that the princess will be too cold!  But we’ll work it out.  So anyway, here is Dylan “practicing” camping:

And here’s Avery being my little shadow.  She had a tough day yesterday with her new teeth coming in.  Fever, fever, fever.  We spent a lot of time snuggling on the couch.  Can’t say I didn’t enjoy it a little!  She’s usually so busy and unwilling to hold still, so this was nice.  Not that I like her not feeling well, but I still enjoyed holding her for awhile.  Now if we could get the 4th tooth to pop thru before camping – that would be splendid!  Because she is NOT in a good mood as a result!  Keep your fingers crossed.  Her teeth have a track record of being slower than molasses.


She’s sitting under my chair while I”m at the computer.   DSC_8835 DSC_8833 DSC_8834
