Camping Trip!

For the 4th of July weekend we went camping with our good friends, the Turanskis, at their family's property near Sweet Home.  It was our first time camping as a family since Griffin was born--hard to believe!  We all had such a great time and now we can't wait to go camping again!  The boys absolutely loved being outdoors and experiencing all that camping had to offer!  I took a ton of pictures, so I'll try to break them up into several posts. (:
 There was a bunk house on the property that had a small kitchen in it.
We got there around lunchtime on Saturday, July 3rd, and Kelly & I got the food ready while Alan & Josh set up camp and cleaned up the property a bit (mowed the lawn, weed-wacked some of the trails, and swept off the roof of the bunkhouse).

We set up our tent on the deck, and the Turanski family set up their tent on the lawn.

We were right next to the Santiam River--it was so relaxing & peaceful.
We spent a lot of time at the river and the kids loved throwing rocks in the water and looking for tadpoles and fish.  It was such a perfect location for our boys!
