Ry's Camping Birthday Party

Rylan was turning 7 so we capitalized on many of his cousins being together over the weekend and had a little camping birthday party for him.  Lots of helpers, easy clean up (hello, outdoors!), and a happy kiddo! 

I loved this quick and easy trail mix bar. Dollar store containers, Winco bulk foods, and plain kraft paper and sharpie.  The kids had a great time mixing up their own trail mix concoctions. 

 Lunch was hot dogs, fruit, chips and oreo dirt cups.

And smore's bars instead of traditional birthday cake. 

He was pretty excited!
 He's such a photogenic kid.  Love this picture, below.

The kids went on a nature scavenger hung as part of the party fun.  So helpful now that Rylan can read too! 

 New jacket from Grandma. And rockin' that sweet toothless smile!  We sure enjoyed celebrating this kid!  I can't believe he's going to be 7 so soon!!!!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
