A couple weeks after school got out, we were so glad to get away for our first weekend camping for the summer! We booked a site in Mossyrock, WA a few weeks prior and manged to align schedules with my sisters, Camille & Charise + families. So glad the timing worked out for all of us!
We have lucked out camping in June for 7 years.... until this year. The week prior to our trip was gorgeous in the PNW. But as the weekend approached, the rain clouds rolled in and it pretty much rained for 3 days straight. There were a few times the sun peaked through the clouds in between downpours, but it wasn't much. We were huddled around the fire and under the canopies for most of the weekend. We even set up two additional tents just so the kids had a place to play without getting wet. It was an adventure for sure!
Always so fun with all the cousins together!
Making donuts in the dutch oven! Hot donuts on cold morning = perfection!
Miles loves the Warnings dog, Basil.
We had such a scenic camping spot! Too bad we couldn't really use that grassy area to play because it was pouring, but beautiful none the less!
Play-dough under the canopy and goofing off in the 'kids play tent'.
We had a lot of fun snuggling baby Gwen!
Carson is a little bit of a baby hog...He sure loves her!
The guys did some fishing (in the rain).
And the kids were pretty pumped to catch a few!
They came home soaked and with one 'keeper'. We cooked it up and the kids actually all really liked it and wished there was more.
Our awesome set-up!
There was this great hill right at the top of our campsite that went down the path next to us. The kids had so much fun racing down that path on their bikes.
Miles really became an expert on his balance bike that weekend. I was so worried he was going to wipe out, but he never did. He loves, loves his bike!
A few games in the trailer too!
So fun to be with these die hard campers. We made the most of a wet weekend and still had so much fun together!
We came back to a sunny Puyallup and pulled out all the gear and pressure washed off all the mud! It's so hard (and dirty) camping in the rain!
