sleeping under the stars

Slowly, but surely, I'm getting somewhere on blog updates.  However, the fun hasn't stopped, so I'm not sure I'll ever get caught up.  Here is the rest of our visit with the Muthersbaugh's.

After meeting in Albany to tour the USS Slater, we all ventured back to Woodford to go camping.  One of the nicest things about deciding to camp 2 miles from the house was the lack of stress that came along with traveling & it was nice to be able to drop Damon off at the house if we had to go somewhere that wasn't pet friendly.

All of the lean-tos are named after trees & this year we stayed in Oak!  It was perfect!  We had great neighbors & it was nice and quiet!  A perfect place to relax for four days!

We spent a few days at the lake & the kids (& Brad) LOVED it!
Even Damon enjoyed spending time outside in the sun!

The kids couldn't remove themselves from technology, completely.  When it came time for bed, they snuggled up & watched some Sponge Bob on mommy's phone!

You can't go camping without yummy s'mores!!!
I loved how Bryn eats hers the same way I used to at her age...
not a dark spot on the marshmallow!

Bryn had a blast playing fetch with Damon!

A family self portrait was a must! 
Those kids are so darn cute!

During my senior year of college, my parents, along with Jason, Pam, & Dylan (pre-Bryn years) came to visit.  We camped at Woodford State Park in the lean-to (next to the one we stayed in this weekend).  We reminisced about that weekend, 6 years ago, & the memories of our last camping trip with Mom.  It was a bitter-sweet weekend for all of us.

I think the lean-to picture is going to become a staple for camping trips.

We had a great time & I wish we could do it more often! 
Come back & visit soon!
