Chloe's First Camping Trip

We went camping this past weekend with our friends Brad & Lauren.
We were trying to get it in before it gets too hot in May. Little did we expect tempuratures in the low 40's, rain storms, and a lot of wind!! We nearly drowned on Friday night. And Saturday, we were all so cold, we had to make a trip to Wal-Mart to get some warm clothes! But we still had tons of fun. Chloe did pretty well considering she hates cold temps and wind. I just layered her as much as I could.

We hiked near the lake, but didn't have the guts to get in! So we mainly hung out by the awesome camp fire that Matt built, trying to stay warm. Chloe seemed to enjoy the warmth, but she hated the smoke. For some reason, Matt was only one who didn't tear-up when the smoke blew in his face. Then, we realized it's because of his contacts! No wonder he kept saying over and over, "I love camp fires."

Thanks to Brad's & Lauren's patience with our little girl, her first camping trip was a success! We don't know how soon we'll venture out again but I hope it won't be too long. Maybe we'll even have the guts to take our dogs next time!! Ha, ha... yeah, right!

So, I just have to say that the most precious picture is the one of Chloe sitting in her bumbo seat by Matt. It just fits!! :)

SO cute!
