It was Roan and Ayla's very first trip overnight camping. I was really impressed with how well they slept in the tent. Ayla had a great time putting every rock in our camp site in her mouth. Roan was jumping off of and over everything he could climb onto. Jade went trout fishing and caught herself a pretty little 8 inch trout. She then got to use her own pocket knife and cleaned it out herself! This is the first time she has ever cleaned a fish, until now she refused to touch them without gloves.
We did hiking and water play. Cooked over the camp fire and caught bugs. I worked with Jade on part of her Forest Fun Girl Scout patch. We went with our good friends, The Thompsons, so there were 3 more kids to make sure we never got bored. We had s'mores and ate the trout the older kids caught in the lake. I cannot say enough good things.
Never again will we wait that long between camping trips!
