More camping!

We did not originally intend to camp two weekends in a row, but thats what ended up happening and we were joined by our friends the Bean's this time at Dogwood Campground near Lake Arrowhead. It was a beautiful place to camp!

Our first night was Janet's birthday. We started off the evening with some roasted hot dogs. :)

Getting ready for a guided night nature walk.

Braided ladies.

The coveted bow and arrow made from a stick found at the campsite, the twine from our bundles of fire wood and arrows made from wooden roasting skewers. It worked pretty well!

Stefan was filming them in slow motion on his phone and the kids got a big kick out of it! (See photo below for still shot).

Swimming at Lake Gregory.

Warming up after the cold lake!

Starbucks while camping? Why not? ;)

Best buddies.

 A nice view to wake up to in the morning.

Wild strawberries. 

This kid. His hands (and most of the rest of him) were this dirty most of the weekend.

Kennedy Meadows {Birthday} Camping

The river is so, so low. It shows how real our drought is!

Wyatt wanted to open his gifts in the tent. He was too shy to do it in front of every one.

This boy loved that shovel and all that dirt!

The candle only singed a little bit of his hair...

Playing with their dry erase boards from Aunt Nancy.

Trying to recreate a photo from 7 years ago (see below). :)
