LT's birthday party

LT had his birthday party last weekend. We had four squares, backyard movie, pizza, homemade rootbeer and cupcakes. That was enough to keep 20 kids very entertained for over three hours.

Beautiful Big Basin!

Last weekend we were able to squeeze in a camping trip between a soccer game on Saturday and soccer pictures on Sunday. I was having second thoughts about going, with so much going on, but it was so worth it!

Our campsite was beautiful, right in the middle of the redwoods. We went with friends which made it even better. The kids set up camp in a hollow tree right at the edge of camp and made a moss carpet and swept with tree branches. We took a hike to a waterfall and then had a delicious dinner over the campfire. In the morning we had a relaxed camp breakfast and were able to pack up in plenty of time for the pictures!

An excellent breakfast invention! Fried banana (dipped in maple brown sugar oatmeal and hot chocolate mix) in the bacon grease. Yummy!

Even the neighbor campsite girl joined in the fun!

TT had to retrieve the kid's ball once it rolled of the campsite and down into the ravine. Takes some skills.
