Our first trip

Through Alex's eyes

Mommy says we are on a trip.
But this looks a lot like home to me.
Here we are playing on our mat

and Nicholas found our chairs. 
I'm wondering where the food is?

Okay well this isn't where we normally sleep but Nicholas liked it well enough.
He kept trying to peek at me whenever I played in my tent before sleep.
Mom says these worked out really good!

okay well this definitely doesn't look like our house
although Daddy says others might be thinking it doesn't look
much look like "camping" either.

But it sure is fun!!

We ganged up on Grandpa!

I'm working on my game plan here
Want to get my hands on the thing Grandpa has 
with all the buttons.

We also got to hang out with Aunt Paula!
(Aunt Becky, Sophie and Grandma were here too
but we didn't get to spend too much time with them
because they had colds) :(

Mommy and Aunt Paula

I'm not sure whats going on
but I'll just hang out I guess

Daddy said it was all uphill and 
called it "Watkins Glen"

Grandpa hung out with Nicholas. 
He even took his hat but I don't understand since he had one already
Mommy says Grandpa likes an excuse to be silly

Here's the rest of the gang with Aunt Becky and cousin Sophie
Aunt Paula and Mommy were taking pictures

Daddy stopped and needed to drink out of this thingy a lot.
I just wanted to take his hat.
Why does every one like these things?
I'm happy I don't have to wear one!!
(get it? I don't have to wear that purple hat anymore!!!)
Mommy and Daddy say after wearing it for six months,
its all done!!!

phew, we finally caught up with Grandpa and Nicholas
Grandpa is STILL wearing two hats!

Mommy said this was the first time we have ever been
on these seats with chains.

I liked it but Mommy thought we were starting
to peter out. I'm wondering who's Peter?

Every one took turns taking drinks, it was really hot!!!

Mommy says maybe next year my brother and I can
have some treats that go in the fire.
hmmm, I'm not so sure about that but she promises
that they are yummy!
and I like yummy!

This camping thing is fun!!!
Nicholas and I talked and we are free again next weekend.

Mommy and Daddy say that everything went well
but that they are tired!
Mommy says the only ones who really relaxed were
the kitties (and they were at home)!

It looks like you had a great time. The boys look like naturals!! I am impressed. We are not brave enough to attempt that yet! We are planning to camp at Watkins Glen with the older two but leave the twins at home :) You continue to amaze me!

Way to go! I'm so glad you had this opportunity for a weekend getaway. The pictures and captions are great; as are the memories you've just captured. Happy summer, Mark, Holli, Alexander and Nicholas!!!
