Our ward had a campout and we're not ones to miss an opportunity to camp. We love camping! Besides, it's been way too cold to camp up until now and we really wanted to get Oliver accustomed to camping. If he's gonna fit in to our little family he'd better learn to love camping! haha.
We were a little nervous to see how he'd do on his first camping trip and we NEVER should have worried. He is a natural. He seriously had a constant smile on his face from the second we got there until we left. He was one happy kid! He even slept and ate wonderfully! He took all his normal naps, slept all night long in the tent without interruption... it was amazing. The funniest thing was seeing his face light up when he woke up in the morning and realized we were sleeping next to him. He was SO happy! haha. We've never slept with him before so it was a big deal for him.
We had a really good time with the other families that were there: the Sontags, Quinns, Teicherts, Porters and the Lichtenberg boys were there too! It was really fun. We all shared a campfire and some of us went hiking together the next morning before the ward picnic.
We can't wait to go again. Austin and I are going to try to go at least twice a month this summer. We really want to get Ollie completely used to camping because we're planning a pretty cool trip for next year and we'll probably be doing a lot of camping on it. I don't want to spoil the surprise by saying where we're going... But, details will be more solidified this fall and I'll have more to say. :)
